Support for Captain

COME TO THE TRIAL ON NOVEMBER 3 AT 8:30 am 
DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO COURTHOUSE

JAMES

James Little – Captain

James Little, better know as “Captain” was cited for illegal camping a few weeks ago. He lost his ticket and immediately asked the courts system when he was supposed to appear. They could not give him that information and said they would only have that information after it turns into a warrant. And now he is being tried for failure to appear and could face jail time. He has a jury trial on November 3 at 8:30 AM.

When cited for camping, Captain had no tent, no blanket, no other camping gear. He was laying down on one of the carts that he builds. The trailer and his tools that he uses to make carts for other homeless people were also taken. Captain is 54, and did have a job at the Sacramento Union as a printer before the paper went out of business.

Captain has no other income now except recycling. Captain is known and loved in the community. He has received hundreds of camping tickets over the years. Captain was jailed a few years ago and nearly lost his dog, Lucky! We need to support Captain and let the city know that we will not tolerate the harassment of senior and disabled homeless residents!

Please show up and show your support for Captain! Thank you!
