One Response to “Reuters: Los Angeles accused of criminalizing homelessness”

  1. “Unfortunate as it is, Reuters’ designation of Los Angeles as the “meanest” place in terms of its treatment of the homeless, rings absolutely true from my visits to LA. Few other places have so overtly waged war against a group of its citizens who did nothing wrong but tried to survive. The battle to keep people off the streets, particularly in Central City East, reminds one of an occupying army in overseas combat” David Wagner.
