The only greater Mental Illness crisis Los Angeles faces than the homeless epidemic on the streets is in the City Council

And that folks, is that. Watch the street camping triple in LA inside 5 years..This isn't fear mongering, it just is what it is.

So not effing up the streets is now voluntary? I think I will voluntarily dump my trash in front of my apartment building this afternoon and see how my neighbors like that. Maybe they will voluntarily remove it.

When did obeying the law become voluntary?

In other words, they'll keep ignoring homeless people and their problems.

Perfect. Los Angeles City council votes today to go from doing nothing effective about solving homelessness to doing somehow even more nothing effective about solving homelessness.

Meanwhile five more homeless human beings will die on the sidewalks today.

The encampments here to stay & more to come. This should not be a solution. The solution should be working to get people off the streets, increased funding for mental health, rehabilitating many in order for them to once again become productive members of society & the community.

In other words, these homeless camps are never going away because city council caved to the woke mob.

We should simply relocate them to the neighborhoods of those city council members, and you'll see how fast the problem is solved
