Considering that folks here are conservatives, what better person to listen to than an officer? And this isn’t just any officer, he’s a model for how officers should be. Understanding of the people who’s area they patrol.

As a resident LAPD has nothing to say on this issue. Look at the city border, specifically the 405 freeway overpass of Venice Blvd. One side of the street is policed by LAPD the other side by Culver City PD. On the LA side you have a tent town across the street anyone can walk down the sidewalk. What we need to do is go to a city that seems to have a plan.

The perpetual homeless encampment on Venice Boulevard underneath the 405 Freeway suggests a tale of two cities’ responses to homelessness, but the moral of that story depends on whom you ask.

There is no homeless issue. There's a property rights...or lack of...issue.

OK - so are we maintaining the status quo? I guess his job isn't to fix it. He gives back the drug paraphernalia to the person selling it because it has no residue on it - even though he knows they will get sold to people using drugs. Hey it's legal - take it, it's yours.

Not sure what the point of your thread is... and what difference it makes that people are conservatives?

The one positive approach I've seen to the homeless situation are the Tiny Homes they've been adding in Seattle. It's not a permanent solution to the problem, but as an interim approach it has been beneficial. You give the homeless some dignity and a lockable space where they can rest, and hopefully start to build a new life.

I suppose the Tiny Home villages may resemble the Hoovervilles built during the Great Depression.

I'm in L.A.

Some private individuals tried that a few years back here. The government seized and destroyed the homes because they were looking to pass a $2 billion housing plan and if you solve the issue on your own...well...daddy State can't steal money to spend on its inefficient, bloated immoral projects to save you.

Watch this. And don't forget to vote!

I don’t think he is trying to fix it alone, merely just pointing out issues and opening the public's eyes on how people end up there and also showing that they’re human. He’s using his job to actually look out for people. No he can’t legally detain that device and obviously he’s somewhat by the book. He’s not there to push people around, but to keep people safe as best as possible because as you’ve seen him state, there are people there that would prey on the homeless.

All he can do is observe and advocate for change and he does.

And reason I mention conservatives is that officers are generally respected by them. And so what better person to listen to than an officer if your conservative?

Nor law. LA is limited by law about what they can do.
