I laughed out loud when I read this in an Email Blast.
With tens of thousands of homeless people in L.A., some Angelenos have had it with the city’s struggles to consistently clear encampments and get a handle on the trash that is sometimes produced by those living on the streets.
The Times found that residents are increasingly taking matters into their own hands, installing fences across sidewalks and putting other, often illegal obstacles in public spaces to make homeless people feel unwelcome. And it’s working.
The city isn’t taking care of the problem, the citizens are taking matters into their own hands, the city responds to this by saying what they are doing is illegal and in some cases issuing fines, lather, rinse and repeat.
It’s going to be just like what I said about Portland.
Eventually the citizens are going to get a belly full and replace the motherfuckers in government who aren’t addressing the problem to begin with.
In the mean time they will continue to protect their own interests and property as best they can.
