Go downtown and you see on every street, bikes, cars not moving and people sleeping on the sidewalks.  The same for San Fran and many California cities.  The reason the cops can’t control this is a Supreme Court decision allowing it.    Previously, the Supreme Court allowed the homeless to declare any street corner as their residence, to allow them to vote—instead of putting them into shelters.  The Courts have enabled the destruction of humans’s and cities.

“Los Angeles County will file an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn an earlier ruling that found it is “cruel and unusual” for local governments to outlaw sleeping on the streets—when homeless residents have no where else to go.

The brief will supplement the city of Boise’s appeal of a case known as Martin vs. the city of Boise. The decision applies to the western portion of the U.S., and cities and counties are lining up to support Boise, arguing it “has tied the hands of law enforcement.”

County supervisors voted 3 to 2 in favor of filing the brief today. It’s a largely symbolic decision, as the county, unlike the city of Los Angeles, does not have a so-called anti-camping law (with the exception of beaches and high-risk fire zones). “

Will the courts enable the destruction of the cities and humans—that is really what this decision is about.
