Are the homeless a threat?

In response to 142950: Feel Safe in Kona?, posted by Diane G on Wednesday, 19 December 2018, at 2:20 p.m.

You have touched upon a sore spot here, Diane...
Last time I was in Kona - 6 months ago - I didn't have any unpleasant experiences downtown (except that, yes, you have to give a wide berth to the homeless and drug addicts), BUT... all in all, the atmosphere has changed so much in the last 20 years.
I used to love to come to the northern cove at the Old Airport Park at sunset to sit, think and look at sunset. Last May, this was not an option: the little picturesque cove had definitely turned into an abode and refuge for the homeless who never hesitate to make you feel that you are intruding upon their territory.
Frankly, I don't see how that can be changed in view of the virtual indifference of the powers-that-be. The homeless have their rights, you see...
All of this will not prevent me from finally moving to my property in Kona (just a short walk away from downtown, and luckily in a relatively safe neighborhood) in less than a year, and I don't see a real threat yet to those who come to rest in Kona, but things have been growing worse with every passing year, and very obviously so. Sorry to say that, since I regularly see Kona in my dreams!
