> tent city in the shadow of Angel Stadium where about 422 homeless people live.
Holy shit! I've lived in cities with significant homeless populations including camps, but never have I heard of a homeless camp of this size. 400+ people?!?
What on earth is going on in Orange County CA? I've heard San Francisco is also getting quite bad.
The problem is when the homeless get sheltered, the restrictions (mostly the no booze or drugs policy) causes most to head back to the streets *again*. I can understand someone wanting their own space in a large camping tent but this is an eyesore. Now the smartest homeless dude I saw waited until sundown to unroll a bedroll under a concrete picnic table with a small bottle o' booze (a park in Los Angeles/Los Feliz btw) ... most everything in dark grey or navy blue..
OP: -1 for autoplay video
The problem is homeless are sent to California by the bus loads. We were there ( I work for the fed gov) when the greyhound bus showed up 3 weeks ago. Four of them... over 300 homeless arrived in one day. That's one day.... we get them all the time. States where its cold or wealthy cities who don't want homeless in the streets send them to LA, SD, SF where it's warmer... well at least la and sD for the most part.
We just got over a help a outbreak. It's horrific
I've never understood how people can afford housing in California.
This is Anaheim's own doing. They had a few opportunities to fix it and they decided to remove benches instead.
Why not just put homeless people to work cleaning up our highways? They get a job and everyone gets a cleaner planet.
California has become a street person rave. They come from all over the country to hang together and live off the land in the near perfect weather and spineless government.
