Just watch the video. Sure is strange that its hard to find any National MSM network reporting out on film in 2019 as this stuff is made for TV as in 60 Minutes.

Los Angeles Video

Here's some local coverage:

It kind of looks like a starving artist event as I have been to a few.

People forced to push baby strollers and their wheelchairs on the streets because the sidewalks are obstructed by homeless camps.
Sad.

Where would you have these people go Water? Somewhere out in the desert where there is no food or water?
It's convienent to blame liberals but liberals are not the problem. You see, the LA area isn't only liberal. There are counties there that are very red, like Orange County. Orange county may not allow homeless people to dwell there because ''you know'' they don't look nice in our neighborhoods so they keep them out. Out to go some where that they can live.

So it is neither liberal or conservative policies that allow things like that video to point to, it is the failed side of our capitalist economy that has brought this about and it is not going to be solved by either the conservative approach of just pushing them away or the liberal approach with ''here's a sidewalk'' you can sleep on for a couple of night until our police come and shove you down a couple of blocks.

What none have family? Back in the early 1900's many families had 3 to 4 generations under one roof because they were poor. Democrats rule the entire state Terry. California laws have led to mass exodus of business [loss of jobs] migration of illegal aliens and crazy laws that cost everyone. Even Hollywood make movies out of state to produce movies and series to lower Production Costs. Here's to you New World Order. "Capitalist". Sure Terry tell us like it really is under Socialism. Even the Chinese have moved toward Capitalism

I've never even been to California and have no interest in going. But the targeting of the homeless problem there by the right irritates me.

Saying it is the result of the left's policies is just ignorant. Trump saying he is going to solve the homeless problem is just plain stupid.

It doesn't matter your politics. Drug addiction, mental health problems, health care costs bankrupting normal people, etc. All of these problems will exist no matter who is running the show. California has a large homeless problem because the weather is suited for living outside year-round and, more basically, they are a huge state with a huge population and a lot of money. Everything there is going to be more exaggerated.

But wait, Trump said he was going to solve this homeless problem so, no worries right?

I personally don’t know how anyone in their rite mind can believe this is a good thing. When living in squalor and filth like that disease and infections and viruses start to run rampant. Drug use will also be rampant, this means discarded paraphernalia which can be harmful.

With the way thins is turning out in these Democrat/liberal hotspots, there could be quarantine and martial law. I wonder when we see the scenario like in those Kurt Russell movies escape from New York and LA.



Austin Texas, just give the homeless the same option of being able to camp on the sidewalk. In Texas especially in Austin we are seeing the people from Cali and Colorado start to make a few changes it’s take between 5-8 yrs but it starting.

Why so disingenuous? So in you mind Trump also caused this. Trump is trying to slow the mass migration into the USA but the 9th Circuit has tied his hands along with a Catholic Governor. Call a spade a spade.

My father is homeless, living on the street in Los Angeles. It has nothing to do with the "Liberal" leaders in LA.

I'll tell you why LA has such a large homeless population. I know because I got to LA every 2 weeks or so to give my father food and supplies and see my girlfriends family.

I've stayed on those streets overnight, I've talked to the people.. and the story is often the same.

80% of the people homeless in LA aren't from California. They were either already homeless.. from some other city/state or they were in jail/prison in California and we're let out with no way out of the cycle and not allowed to leave due to probation.

California in our pop-culture here in this country.. LA specifically is where you go to "make it big" it's seen as a place where "rags to.riches" is common. People flock there with no money no support.. no nothing with dreams of making it big. They fall hard when they don't... Turn to drugs and live on the streets.

Homeless from other cities and states find a way there because it's warm year round, and the city is full of money so they can survive begging and hustling.

People with mental disabilities flock there for the same reasons.

It has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with how California is viewed in our pop culture... Hollywood.. etc.

I know what I'm talking about.

Yep, check out current Bill AB 262,


The bill would authorize the local health officer to issue orders to other governmental entities within the local health officer’s jurisdiction to take any action the local health officer deems necessary to control the spread of the communicable disease.


"authorize...ANY action the local health officer deems necessary"

BTW the flu is a communicable disease, so there's a biiiiig loophole in this one.

They don't want the problem solved. It could be solved easily but that would kill jobs. It takes an army of government agencies, non profits, drug dealers to make this operation work. Homelessness is a big industry. Look at all those nice tarps and tents. Those tents are great. Much better than military shelter halves.

When the liberal policies offer free everything, and protection from federal laws, only a moron would think it is not going to result in this type of situation. One of the jobs of the city should be to protect its citizens, all of them, from the spread of disease and drug use. This situation of allowing people to live on the streets creates a very large case for rampant disease and infestation of vermin that will spread to the rest of the population. It is a fact that LA has seen a significant rise in the rat population over the last few years. That rise is exacerbated by the unsanitary living conditions in these areas.

If LA truly wanted to help these people, they would use some of the public land to erect buildings (or renovate older empty structures) to make free housing for these people. If they do not go there, you bring them there. If they refuse to live there, and still want to live on the street, then you enforce the vagrancy laws on the books (if any are there). Soon you will see the ones that do not want to make a positive impact on society leave.

Now you say, "where should they go?". Well, there are places as I mentioned. Here's an idea. How about all those whining and complaining about "caring" for these people take one into their homes, or allow them to camp on their property? You will be helping them out, and providing a safe area for them to stay. If, that is, you really are interested in helping them and not just virtue signaling to present yourself as "compassionate and woke".


As the old saying goes, "We're closed. You have to leave now. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here."

Looks a lot like the Mission/Spanish Mission neighborhoods in San Francisco.
I had to walk in the streets often when I was there, as there were tents, tarps, and human waste on the sidewalks. Not to discount the local denizens, as many seemed to wander aimlessly in either a drunken stupor or some drug induced haze.
I live in Chicago. Have for 41 years.
Never has it gotten as bad as I saw in California.
That's just ridiculous and a shame.
Anyone remember when Cali was the COOL state everyone wanted to go to?
That memory is fading for me.
What a world.

Your father is homeless????? Is there a reason you aren't housing him?

I agree with some of your comments. People from all over the country and the world flock to areas for ease of life. Moderate temperatures, access to necessities, room to toss a tent.

The liberal politics have a definite influence on what has happened to LA. It didn't happen overnight.

Yeah I am so sure that LA proper is full of conservatives. NOT.

Yes.

I'm 30 years old, and from Ohio.. lived there until I was 26 until I moved here to Phoenix Arizona.

My father was in prison for about 25 of those 26 years in California.

He has drug addictions to Crystal methamphetamine, heroin, come etc.

He is not allowed to leave LA as he is on probation/parole

He chooses to love on the streets because he isn't one for "rules"

I am sorry to hear about your father. Drug addiction is a horrible thing. You are fortunate because you seem to have avoided that trap. I hope one day your father reaches a point where he will seek help and can become the man he was intended to be.
