Put relentless pressure on any public "servants" to get facilities up and running and those in need off the street or out of any public areas
Call 911 when you see any illegal activity- law enforcement should explain why/if they don't respond
If you see something, say something
Loudly !
Vote out liberal incumbents - vote in conservatives that are motivated to get this fixed

“I was scared,” said Alyna, recalling her first impression of a neighborhood where people loitered on streets, sprawled on the pavement and lived in tents. “And I was nervous. Everybody that was outside was, like, creepy, and I was scared about staying there.”

This is all playing out just a few blocks from the downtown construction boom of luxury towers reaching of the sky. The California economy is strong, unemployment is down and many homeowners have equity wealth they never could have imagined. But at this street level, others are drowning, and the cost of survival always seems just out of reach.

“I’m going to be a good person, and I want to become president. If I was president, I’d lower the prices for everything because they’re not fair to the homeless.””

Sounds like a socialist in training

The price of everything should be affordable for the homeless ?
"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"

- a slogan popularised by Karl Marx

In the case of the "homeless", the needs are very great and the abilities (and means) are non existent. So yes, free.

Well if the liberals get their new diversion program kids 12 and under really won't need to be scared - open and concealed carry etc..... punishment-free homeless threat elimination....
Heck once the 12 and unders get some well deserved respect from the "homeless" maybe they can become "homeless resource and service " providers. what cha need bro etc...

Another telling part in L.A Times article linked above

Even little kids realize it’s scary and creepy being around groups of homeless .

““I was scared,” said Alyna, recalling her first impression of a neighborhood where people loitered on streets, sprawled on the pavement and lived in tents. “And I was nervous. Everybody that was outside was, like, creepy, and I was scared about staying there.”

That's why I posted that link suggesting people contact the city of outreach. It's going to take multiple city agencies to fix this problem, and people need to force their city and county officials to take action.

Realistically Los Angeles is also going to have to use it's underutilized land to build apartments to house working class people and low income people (seniors on social security, people on disability, etc). Getting people treatment early or linking them to help they need before they become totally cracked down on Skid Row should be done as well).

San Francisco is starting to lose tourism due to homelessness, with a major medical convention abandoning the city after one of it's board members got assaulted.

San Francisco lost a 40 million dollar convention due to homeless issues. The thing is the homelessness is LA and SF FAR worse than what I have seen in Latin America. This is worse than third world and people from California should be ASHAMED.

I hope you're calling 911 when you see inappropriate things jm1982, and I also hope you use that portal to call for outreach workers to come and do something. I also hope you're calling your elected officials and I hope you vote.
