The Los Angeles City Council has approved a ban on homeless encampments within 500 feet of schools and daycare centers in public places on an 11-3 vote.

This is all due to that POS running for mayor.


Unfortunately mayoral candidate Rick Caruso, spending millions of dollars buying visibility, "moved the needle" in further riling up the public against the homeless.

A little while back there was an article basically saying having to see and witness crushing, depressing poverty is upsetting people, and that very crushing, depressing poverty is now becoming more prominent finding its way into suburbia.

In the past homelessness and its related issues had typically been confined to "certain parts of town."

With that it's not a surprise a lot "loud" complaints about homeless encampments are coming from the San Fernando Valley and West L.A.
