Another homeless man, Bruce, is now living next to Jimmy just off the RR bridge in Northridge. Bruce is well aware that both the County and railroad are jockeying for position to claim ownership of the bridge. The law states an abandoned railroad lease reverts ownership to the nearest adjacent property, which would be the County, since the bridge is over the County flood control channel. But the second nearest property is the railroad.
It is the railroad people and the police that keep showing up at Jimmy's tent.
The bridge is just outside a 24 Hour Fitness Center and Best Buy with lots of traffic going by, the perfect place for a railroad style fast food restaurant. I'll bet this is what the railroad has in mind and why they want to get rid of Jimmy.
Jimmy goes to court Friday at 9:00 a.m.
If he faces trial, his own public defender, who works for the same powers that be as the truly scummy prosecutor, threatened him with 180 days in jail and three years of probation after that.
If Jimmy is arrested and jailed, what happens to his 47 cats in the various colonies? No one contacted has offered help.
