Message Subject SOCAL RESIDENTS OUTRAGED AS HOMELESSNESS CRISIS CONTINUES TO CRIPPLE THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward

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.

You have an open border, drugs coming through, poor people from Latin America, etc. You have illegal and legal immigrants driving down wages for native Americans, white flight from the suburbs. This is the future for the entire country, California is a bellwether state.
