Washington state lawmakers propose making permanent homeless encampments legal statewide, that will likely increase the spread of garbage, drug needles and human excrement on the streets across the state. Some homeless people refuse help and to go to shelters because they do not want to follow rules.
Amazon, Starbucks and other large employers were able to pressure Seattle’s City Council into overturning the socialist “head tax” of $275 on each employee per year that was expected to raise $50 million per year. The money was to help the growing homeless population. Amazon has more than 45,000 employees, and the tax would have cost the company $12,375,000.
San Francisco has the most expensive housing in America, which has led to a rise in the homeless population who are living in the streets, creating a problem with human waste on the streets. The city is offering a new app to report feces and needles left behind by drug addicts on the floors inside the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station instead of creating a solution to the homeless problem.
Children’s toys and clothing confirm that small children had been present, but the most disturbing discovery was a pair of hand restraints fastened to tree trunks in a position that typically is used when torturing or abusing a victim. A baby stroller and pornographic materials also were found. None of these things are proof that children were abused in this camp, but the evidence is jolting.
