[quote:Old Custer:MV80MDQyNDI0XzczMjI4MDM3XzM5QzA2N0VG] When I visited Cali everyone was liberal but also hated the homeless. But they weren't allowed to blame them or even talk directly about them. It was an insane case of just pretending to not see it. they would be annoyed with them like they we were bad weather. These same people also would spend like 80% of their income on housing so they could be further away from the homeless. It's amazing to me that people will live a lower standard of living to say they live in NYC or California likes its an accomplishment. I also don't think homeless really describes these people though. Its really a bunch of people that have reduced their living expenses to near 0 so they can do drugs all day and not work. The old cliche of a person down on their luck with no means of getting back up just does not apply. If anything these people milk that cliche as much as possible but have no intention of returning to the grind of a work force. To them going to work everyday is for idiots. [/quote]
The homelessness crisis impacts many people in Southern California, and some are addressing the problem head-on as they look for solutions.
Many say the issue is encroaching on where they live, both in their surrounding neighborhood and near their home. Some of those residents say they're tired of dealing with the crisis first hand.
Rick and Robin Marcelli live in a townhouse in Sherman Oaks. They say the homeless crisis has gotten worse over the last year and a half.
"We've walked over needles on this very street. We've walked over human feces on this very street. This is Sherman Oaks. But I'm beginning to call it 'Skid Oaks,'" Rick Marcelli said.
Some incidents include the time a transient reportedly stood outside their front door waving a metal wrench, and a separate incident in which a homeless man was caught taking a bath in their complex's Jacuzzi.
