 >From Wikipedia - "Under Hitler's rule, both Roma and Jews were defined as "enemies of the race-based state" by the Nuremberg laws; the two groups were targeted by similar policies and persecution, culminating in the near annihilation of both populations within Nazi-occupied countries. Because Eastern European Romani communities were not organised, and largely relied on an orally transmitted culture, Porajmos was not well documented". That quote forgets to mention other groups that were famously targeted, Homosexuals and other “degenerates”, the disabled, the elderly, and especially, and always first to be targeted in any community, the “mentally ill” - a pseudoscience expression that in the 20th Century replaced “demonic possession” or “witch” in its false veil of having scientific legitimacy.

 >I contacted a Gypsy group that has a history of fighting Antiziganists like Liz Kneiss and Larry Klein, and their subtle ethnic cleansing laws designed to drive Gypsies out of cities. This historic ethnic cleansing method, using laws and police to drive a population out of a city, was the original cause of these people becoming known as vehicle dwellers hundreds of years ago. One member of the group suggested letting the vehicle dweller ordinance pass. Then people from their group would travel to Palo Alto to get cited. Each individual would then go out and get an attorney who has been prepped on the issue, and individually sue the City of Palo Alto for discrimination. It was suggested that their people could then make money off of the rampant Antiziganism in Palo Alto.

 >I consulted two Rabi friends, who suggested adding to that money incentive for fighting Antiziganist Klein and Antiziganist Kneiss, to use ostracism. Ostracism not just of Klein and Kneiss, but of anyone who associates with them. I was told this has been an effective tool used to fight anti-Semitism, and can be used to fight Antiziganism in the same way. I was referred to contact the Anti-defamation League to help organize the ostracism of Klein and Kneiss, and of their associates.

 >See In Re Eichorn (1998) 69 Cal App 4th: http://law.justia...­  (permitting a homeless man, arrested for sleeping in a public location, to raise the necessity defense).  Think the application of the defense of necessity each time the city of Palo Alto cites a vehicle dweller for a violation of their proposed ordinance.

 >The courts --currently about to explode--due to a lack of resources --will love Palo Alto City Attorney Molly Stump--and the members of the  Palo Alto City Council who draft and pass any ordinance designed  to further criminalize members of the homeless community here in Santa Clara County.

 >I am sure both Molly O'Neal ( Santa Clara County Public Defender) and Jeff Rosen (Santa Clara County District Attorney) --will be delighted to have their already overburdened and under resourced offices--caseloads already bursting with serious cases--further burdened by Molly Stump's No Vehicle Habitation Ordinance. As you may know many members of Palo Alto's vehicle dweller community are fearless and litigious individual­s ready to take on the City of Palo Alto should this ugly draconian ordinance ever actually become a reality.
