  1. ft, Lauderdale fl…  2 days ago homeless awoke to bull dozers leveling the camp. happy ending… they were offered a one way bus ticket out town or a 1 week stay at a skid row motel.  Local applauded.

  2. Socialism runs out of somebody else's money.
    Socialism is blooming in California and Michigan.. New York maybe next.
    I hope other States will contain all of these Socialist from leaving California so they don't destroy other places.

  3. Good example about how Gov Works in USA tks to the last presidents Ignore Skid Roads Unable to provide healthcare,food stams , works,clothing , americans fellows we going to make america poor again here is your vote by the way NO Latin people because they help between themselves and work hard no matter what that´s the sucessful key no wait until you got food stams

  4. There needs to be regulations on how much greedy landlords can charge for rent – that alone would change the landscape of homelessness

  5. 2018 vacation destination as seen on the Travel channel. …..Thanx liberal 💩 democrats 😆 keep voting them in 😉

  6. The democrats are taxing working men and women, they're dumbing illegals into the working class neighborhoods and cities……..main while The democrat elites,all the athletes,Hollywood stars and wealthy individuals are all living in a gated communities with high security ….. The real losers are the Californians and the brainwashed liberals …..I don't feel sorry for them ….they voted for this,now they have to lay on it.

  7. The Real Estate ASS.
    No work – rake in the easy $money$ other's must ACTUALLY work for –
    Then they call themselve's LandLords!
    While they ( the
    A$$E$ ) get the government 'in bed' w/them – and do deviant things to advantage themselves – like get rid of mobile home parks where people can live most economically via the very few/only low paying jobs are available.

  8. this is what I call economic warfare where the rich not only get richer the poor and destitute are used as exploited tools of good acts by way of charities  where the rich only create dependency for a lazier and more dependent society . Reminds me of a Homeless ambassador by the instagram name of KingLeo_818  from van nuys,ca who has been empowering his community and fellow kin by way of not only wisdom but resources when possible.Id urge everyone looking to make a difference in America to reach out to him . God Bless Us All.

  9. Democratic city in a Democratic state. We can only hope for good and offer nothing else.
    This, while the Democratic Governor is in the midst of building a FIFTY BILLION dollar rail that will never see the day of completion. And, we keep voting in Democrats….Ay ya yay!

  10. They stood high up looked down and he said to him and someday this will be all your responsibility.

  11. Amazing don’t see any homeless illegals build the wall and put Americans and legal residents frist mass deportations for all illegals is way past due

  12. Fuck homelesses, they the one bringing illegal drugs and be arrested. I say they shouldve die with nasty disease.

  13. These people want to be homeless it's a way of life for them and they're moving to California because of the weather and all those social programs and sympathy that they have going for them to get their life of homelessness paid for by the taxpayers

  14. I lived in a tent on Beaudry between Wilshire Blvd & 6th St close to LA Storage for approximately 6yrs until finally leaving SoCal in 2014. CHP and LAPD (Rampart division) were literally an accepted everyday encounter. Anybody living/working in the area for 5yrs or more would know & remember precisely who I was. Heroin addiction in Los Angeles for me was no joke. Homelessness & addiction there was also a related issue 96% of the time and surely I'm being generous with my calculations….. I did, however have one of the most beautiful night time views of the downtown LA skyline looking across the 110 Harbor Fwy from Beaudry!

  15. I live downtown LA the heart of skid row and we have something to say even though we don’t have much it’s not all bad please support by listening ❤️ https://youtu.be/9-6KVlbU9BM

  16. What needs to be done is make available the opportunity for the rich in LA to adopt a homeless person…as a tax shelter.

  17. You guys are all fucked up it your mighty orangatan who's. Raised the taxes. You need to get into reality. Assholes.ask yourking to help then you know the one you voted in .I hope they. All of you and make you homeless.. terri

  18. I believe this is why many people have high Anxiety level the homeless but ALSO people who are trying to make it and have to deal with the homeless people sometimes when you step out your door you can feel the level rising.

  19. So many people from all over put California down but, first chance they get they come and never leave. Great weather most of the time amongst freebies being given to most who don't deserve them. Help out people who are being productive on a daily not those sitting thier ASSES at the park waiting for the free food and freebies to come around.

  20. Such bullshit. They pick out one white jobless woman among the thousands of druggies, to represent homeless.

  21. Sun, sand, surf and homeless assholes ! I used to live there and it was never that bad. The city just let their shit go bad…. The reason why the homeless concentration is so high because other areas pushed them out, so it became someone else's problem. What you need is some acreage to put these people on so there out of the way. Let them live in their trash away from view.

  22. Yeah, if you look in the schools, it's mostly brown people. If you go into a welfare center it's all brown people. If you look at the crime numbers by ethecity it's brown people… i can go on and on just how fucked up this country is now due to voting and handing out free checks… guess we turned into the United States of Mexico…. this really needs to stop !

  23. DO NOT EVICT THE HOMELESS OR BURY THEIR TENTS AND SORROWFUL POSSESSIONS INTO MASSIVE PITS. As a Sanctuary State, citizens should come first in line before migrant caravans. Hands off!!!

  24. ALL THIS PROBLEM ARE GOING AWAY, WITH KAMALA HARRIS, NANCY PELOSI, MAXINE WATERS, SENATOR FEINSTEIN. WHAT CAN GO WRONG WITH THIS QUADRUPLE CARRER POLITICIANS? NEVER MIND THEY'VE BEEN RUINING THIS PLACE THE GROUND.
