City of Santa Ana is promoting anti-bear locked trash cans, according to the L.A. Times

Is the City of Santa Ana trying to stop Mexican bears from stealing recyclables out of trash cans?

“Fed up with urban foragers who root through neighborhood trash in search of plastic and aluminum, residents of one Santa Ana neighborhood are locking up their recyclables in a container designed to withstand the brute strength and cunning of brown and black bears,” according to the L.A. Times.

We wrote about this a few weeks ago when the O.C. Register broke the story.  It is obviously yet another attempt by Santa Ana’s Usual Suspects, in the Wilshire Square Neighborhood, to bash Mexicans.

But the Register missed a tiny detail.

“It was pretty much a given that the economy was driving the increase in scavenging,” said Mary Gonzales, the city’s project manager, who is overseeing the program.

Aha!  The City of Santa Ana is behind this program.  Once again they are kissing up to the Usual Suspects.

The folks complaining about their trash being rummaged through are lucky to have roofs over their heads.  They lack compassion.  What a shame that the City is buying into their hatred of Mexicans.

Imagine the desperation that would drive someone to root through trash just to survive.  It is simply horrible.

By the way, there is a city ordinance that prohibits you from keeping your trash cans out where folks can see them, on non-trash pick up days.  Could these complainers be guilty of violating that ordinance?  You have to wonder.  Or maybe they just don’t want anyone to know how much gin their drinking?
