I always thought it was cool to see the Salvation Army give food to folks at the trail in front of the Naval PostGrad school. Today I went for a run and spotted several people on that bench abusing narcotics. I was very disappointed in seeing this in broad daylight next to the coastal trail. Why is the riffraff allowed to be there?

How do you figure it's being allowed?

That area has become a hangout for the homeless and they have taken over some of the picnic tbls there. There was even a robbery and shooting near there last month too. It is sad to see the spill over of homeless and gang activity from the surrounding communities affecting Monterey now. The City council is just lately trying to get a grip on it. I hope it doesn't become another Santa Cruz...yuk! Do people even stop to think about where all of these homeless people go to the bathroom at night? I see it daily in SC, its disgusting and the whole downtown area is one big toilet to them!

They have the right to hang out there. The drug use is not allowed, it's just a matter of them getting caught or not. I ride that area all the time and I dont see an issue really. Most the time no one is around there. Monterey's homeless issue seems small to me. Most like SC because the weather is much warmer and they have been gathering there for decades so there is more homeless to be around plus more groups that help feed and cloth them.
