Fox News Digital, started with an ambitious project to chronicle the toll that progressive policies have had on the homeless crisis in four west coast cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, and Portland, Ore. In each and every city, we noticed a lack of safety and security, hygiene, and good manners.
Election. Value for money! The anxiety level. These are some of the words that residents will use it in 2019 for the description of the growing homelessness problem in the United States of america. There were numerous cases of intimidation, excessive use of drugs and the disruption of the mental illness that seemed to be a light on the harsh reality is that America’s once-manageable to keep track of homeless people, the problem was transformed into a modern-day crisis.
In Los Angeles, california, Heidi Van Tassell said the homeless man pulled her out of her car, dragged her to the middle of the street and threw a bucket of faeces on her head.
In Oakland, the increasing numbers can still have an impact, it is the way in which retailers such as the Side McCants, the operation of the business. Things are acidic, so a lot of it in Seattle, Father Michael Ryan of California. James’s Cathedral, a letter was sent to the members and ask that they pray for the city and for the church to find the balance that we need to be not only a welcoming place but a safe place to be.” The letter was in response to one of the homeless men in the storming of the church as well as the beating of a 200-year-old wooden statue of a lady with a big rock. This was not an isolated incident, and that the church now has a uniformed police officer is present during all the weekend Masses. Unfortunately, there have been other similar complaints are popping up all over the country.
Fox News spoke to more than 100 homeless men and women, and attorneys, and their clients, who said they had lost faith in their elected officials, and the possibility to resolve the crisis, especially since the majority of towns, cities and states were in the hundreds of millions of dollars to deal with the problem, just to look at it, it would be even worse.
Fed up, the residents have started taking matters into their own hands and have done everything from dumping the car-sized logs for the companies pitching plans to take the party buses, the homeless, and for them to make some money, drive them across the border, and to the left of it. While some of the suggestions you might have their feet firmly planted in the realm of fantasy, the other suggestions may actually work.
Here are just a few of the unconventional ways in which people could come in 2019, to help curb the current homelessness crisis.
The homeless situation is at Oakland, alameda, California, is quite uncertain. The city has seen a 47 per cent increase in homelessness over the past two years and are elected leaders, like council Member Noel Gallo will say that the situation is only going to get worse.
At this time, the members of the city council is considering a proposal that would house 1,000 homeless people live in the Bay Area on a cruise ship. It was an idea that was introduced by city council President Rebecca Kaplan, who said of her plan, it would be a great way to keep your home, a lot of people any time soon,” and added that “the cruise ships have been used for emergency housing after natural disasters, and for additional accommodation for activities such as the Olympic games.”
Kaplan is expected to have its full proposal to the board in January, and claims its plan would be “little or no cost to the city, because the people onboard that would pay for their rooms on the basis of their level of income. Kaplan said they have been approached by many of the cruise companies is to provide a vessel for the solution.
Jonathan Warmund, it is of the opinion that the Bay Area does not have a property “options” which may contribute to the increase in the number of homeless men and women who are struggling with drug addiction, and mental health problems.
He is of the opinion that the vessels and barges that can be set up quickly and it adds that “ships, be able to support the critical wraparound services that are needed in order to help you with these complex issues, along with many other unique quality.”
To be done, when in fact, it would be an uphill battle. Warmund said as he tried to reach for non-profits, and local government officials, but there is as yet no luck.
“I suspect there is a weariness with what seems to be a difficult situation for you, but I’m sensing, or to speculate that there may be resistance to the new ideas of the present, the people in the front lines,” he told Fox News.
Gene Gorelik know a thing or two about the pushback from local government officials. He’s pissed a lot of people when he was introduced to Oakland’s homeless will have to be put on the party buses are filled with alcohol, is driven over the border and stranded in Mexico.
He has a different idea of which city to city with a closer look to be conservative. Gorelik, told Fox News that he thinks the city should pay the homeless people, drug addicts $100 to fill up the holes and says, “fill in the holes it should be more profitable than robbing cars. Two of the birds. It. Do it.”
Gorelik is also in vain attempted, by 2019, to bribe the homeless to leave Oakland.
THE BIG LOGS
Anyone in Oakland have begun to take on a car-sized logs in front of the businesses this year In an effort to deter transients from parking their motor homes, or derelict vehicles is for business. As for the motive, it was clear, not a single person or a group has come forward to say they were behind a long line of them.
Sean Maher, a spokesman for the Oakland Public Works Department, has said that he considers it as the log was a “deliberate obstruction of a public right of way,” but admits that the department has not yet reached out to local businesses in order to get to the bottom of the mystery.
In September, a group of neighbors in San Francisco, Clinton Park, it caused quite a commotion after it is paid to the two dozen or so large boulders along the sidewalk to keep the homeless from setting up tents in the area.
There was an immediate backlash, and the neighbors said that they had been threatened and harassed by the activists who pushed the stone from the door. The tug-of-war continues, and the public works employees were called by the people three times in one week to see the stones back in.
In the end, though, the neighbors, the back down after she said that she was threatened with death by the people who have sympathy for the homeless.
In October, a resident of San Francisco’s Ingleside neighborhood was built on a plywood wall in a tunnel to keep the drug dealers and homeless people out. A neighbour told local media that the city had made a decision on the plywood of the wall, but about three days after it went up, and the other neighbors have complained, and it came down.
“I don’t agree with the lock on it at all,” Miles Escobedo, vice-president of the Ocean Avenue Association, told ABC7. “That was a nuclear decision, and that is the main problem. Why board at all? That is, it is in a condition of fear, which is almost worse. We do not need to be afraid of. We need to be able to get in touch with the local authorities.”

Los Angeles has struggled for years clear camps and get a handle on the homeless problem. It doesn’t work. In fact, it has gotten worse. The number of homeless persons in Los Angeles County have risen for the third time in four years. The most recent census to be released in June by the Los Angeles County Homeless Services Authority (fsa) shows that there are nearly 60,000 homeless people with no shelter on any given night.
Ticked-off because of the increase in the numbers of residents and businesses have their own methods for managing the problem. In South L. A., the business was built, chain-link fences around the buildings, while others were planted thorny rose bushes, and prickly cactus, to keep the bad guys out. In Venice, the large panels were put into place to discourage the homeless from sleeping on the sidewalk. The lawyers said in August that the planters have been removed.
