SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — People living in downtown Sacramento say they don’t feel comfortable in their own home. Some are even moving, all because of a homeless man.

“Pants pulled down to the ankles pleasuring himself like he was at an amusement park,” said Robert Ellis.

Robert says he looked out his bedroom window to see a homeless man, with his pants down, surrounded by pornographic magazines.

“I did a triple take and that’s when I noticed an obscene act taking place in front of my eyes,” said Robert.

“It was horrifying in broad daylight with pornographic material strewed all around him and not a care in the world,” said Andrea Michon, a concerned parent.

To make matters worse, it happened less than a mile from an elementary and middle school.

“As parents, this is exactly our worst nightmare,” Andrea said.

Robert called the police, and the man was arrested, but since this is a misdemeanor crime, he was released a few hours later.

“That’s very frustrating. Very concerning. But that’s sad because he needs help obviously and I’m sure he didn’t get help in 12 hours,” said a neighbor.

Knowing the man is back in the neighborhood has people feeling helpless and resorting to options they never thought they would.

“It’s gotten me to the point where I think I’m going to have to sell my house now. I don’t want to be here anymore,” Robert said.

Kids in the neighborhood are being told to play just in the backyard, for now.

    Thank you liberals. You are ruining this country.

  2. Bob Bradley says:

    The new California normal. The voters got what they asked for and deserved.

  3. Shelly Havara says:

    I sincerely don’t know why anyone would be upset in California by this… you reap what you sow.

  4. It sounds to me like the men in the neighborhood are a bunch of pu$$ies. What would happen if that happened in say a Texas neighborhood? I know what would happen.

    1. Carl Mayo says:

      the beat-off would be answered with a beat-down

  5. Saw this on Drudge. Went to http://www.PressCalifornia.com for more news about Crazyfornia.

  6. Adrian Pineda says:

    Up until the 1980’s, if this happened the Police would call for a truck. Two big burly guys would show up, place the individual in a special long sleeved coat and take him away. End of story.

  7. Why uproot your home and family for some deviant? Take care of the deviant!

  8. Chris Logan says:

    “I’m going to have to sell my house now. I don’t want to be here anymore.” – That’s exactly what they want you to do… so they can move lazy welfare recipients into the hours in your stead and give them a universal income of $1k/mo to do nothing but pleasure themselves on the front lawn.

  9. Peter York says:

    why doesn’t anyone put two and two together? think what he might’ve become if he’d been surrounded by Popular Mechanics magazines!

    ah, the liberal elite. a herd of independent thinkers.

  10. Jack Inmanz says:

    Homeless guy? Those porn magazines aren’t cheap (or so I’ve heard). Maybe he needs a grant to either buy more magazines or . . . well, I guess that’s all.

  11. John Oakman says:

    You axed fo it–now it bees youses.

  12. Beth Goldberg says:

    The real problem in this city is drugs. It can’t go unmentioned. The lawlessness, filth and uncivilized behavior is the result of drug abuse. The City Council meeting I attended even admitted this homeless problem is a result of Prop 47 and others that reduced drug possession to nothing. No consequences for bad behavior is exactly what we see. Let’s all go back to the voting booth and make this city better. People need to be accountable and need to get the help that is out there for them. It won’t happen sleeping in a tent under the freeway. Or selling their stolen goods on street corners in a town that is trying to draw tourists. Seriously, it’s up to us to vote for a better Sacramento.

  13. Buddy Burke says:

    Each time something like this occurs, liberals are convinced they made the world a better place.

  14. It is important that you own your fail, that you embrace your progressive failures full face.

  15. Michael Allen says:

    This is what doing nothing gets you! He’ll never go to court, he’ll just wander the streets jerking off because he’s a drain on county resources.

    How does the city have $23 million for a homeless shelter, $47 milion for Old Sac and another $30 million for a soccer arena yet can’t fund Sac Unified next year without 107 layoffs? I absolutely, 100% gurantee you that it’s a heck of a lot cheaper to invest in kids then trying to clean them up as adults! How much is the debt payment on Golden1? Arena’s, homeless, soccer, Old Sac. all getting their share who cares about those kids!
