Welcome to Los Angeles – where homeless sleep in tent cities and wander the streets, making California cities some of the most dangerous in the world.
Dangerous and destructive leftist policies created by the corrupt Democrats in control, are making it impossible, even for people with good jobs, to be able to afford the basic essentials of life, and conditions that can cause Human disasters, like the California wildfires that we’ve learned were started in homeless camps.
Just look at the cities and states that are the biggest shit-holes, with the highest taxes, lowest employment, and highest welfare / food stamp usage, and you will see that they are all run by corrupt leftists, who are only out to help themselves, and couldn’t care less if their policies are destroying the city/state economy.
California is already overrun with people who can’t even afford a place to live, and the stupid leftists running the state are inviting hoards of illegal immigrants into the state, which will only make things harder for the people who live there, and add to the numbers of homeless living in tents and wandering the streets begging for money and food.
This is what you get with leftist idiots, like Jerry Brown, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Ted Lieu, Barbara Lee, and Adam Schiff running the show, who are only in the government to make themselves rich, and couldn’t give two shits about the people their dangerous liberal policies are hurting.
If disturbing scenes like these are acceptable to the people of California and other libtard-run states, then have at it. Otherwise, the people in these homeless-overrun states, like California, need to kick the leftists out of office, and elect conservatives who have shown that they know how to run cities and states far better than any Democrat ever could.
Rubbish bags piled up by the pavements and littered across streets.
Tents erected in clusters where people have camped down for the night.
Dozens of directionless residents congregating by the roadside and wandering into the road.
This is what Christmas Day looked like for thousands of homeless people in the dark and dingy underbelly of Downtown Los Angeles this year.
The shocking footage – captured using a car dash camera – shows the brutal reality of life on the street for some 20,000 people in the notorious Skid Row district.
Shot on 5th Street, 6th Street and San Pedro Street, it is a stark glimpse into the day-to-day existence of some of the country’s poorest citizens – including women and children.
This area of LA’s central business zone is considered to be one of the most dangerous places to live in the city.
In Skid Row – one of the notorious homeless hotspots in the area – nine toilets are shared by some 2,000 people, according to a June report titled ‘No Place to Go’.
A lucky few will find food and somewhere warm to sleep at shelters and rescue missions.
But many are left to navigate the industrial sprawl and smoke alone.
The three-minute clip was originally published on Instagram by LA street artist Plastic Jesus then on LiveLeak by Nick Stern in the ‘Citizen Journalism’ video category.
It had only been live for 10 hours when it was viewed nearly 40,000 times.
In one frame of the viral footage, a man can be seen pushing a wheelchair in the middle of the road.
Another wheelchair-bound man reclines listlessly on a street corner while women file their thin-looking children through the crowds.
Makeshift canopies – often simply sheets erected on poles – are packed in tightly beside one another in endless rows.
The rising cost of rent and housing in California is also forcing middle class residents into alternative accommodation.
Workers end up living in their cars by the roadside and hundreds of people – including nurses and chefs – sleep in parking lots in affluent areas like Santa Barbara.
For example, nursing assistant Marva Ericson has been sleeping in her Kia for the past three months.
She showers at her local YMCA then gets dressed in her hospital scrubs for work.
The problem is so widespread that a Safe Parking Program was introduced in the area 12 years ago.
It allows clients to stay overnight in the parking lots of churches, not-for-profits and government offices.
In Santa Barbara alone, there are 23 parking lots currently used for the program.
