I sent this e-mail to our Mayor, City Councilman, SDPD homeless outreach and numerous others. I do not like what has become of this neighborhood:

I have been sitting in my apartment tonight trying to watch a movie. I have headphones and I can still hear the crap going on across the street. That would be the west side of 9th, south of E. The ladies at Rachel's night shelter are also listening to these folks. Someone may want to talk to them.
It is sort of like a block party, but there is one loud mouth that is almost constant. Then there are the arguments. Tonight several men were arguing about belongings.
This has become a situation out of control that is detrimentally affecting RESIDENTS of this neighborhood.
10:23, big mouth is arguing with someone again. They use such nice language, too. I know that the apartment manager here has talked to the police. I do not know what can be done. I do know something needs to be done.
This City is broke because of lousy management & pension fund shenanigans when they should have been handling the issues that affect PEOPLE.
WE THE PEOPLE. We NEED your help. We want our neighborhood back. The loud whistling, horn honking at all hours every night. There are also a couple of dogs that bark a lot.
THIS IS SERIOUS. I don't even leave my apartment, due to plain old FEAR.
I am asking that the City of San Diego protect its residents and restore the Quality of Life that existed prior to the huge influx of Homeless (about 6 months ago).
I await your collective responses.
