The city of los Angelas has a contract with the cities here. They dump homeless and ex cons here.

You can't walk through a parking lot or pull up to a gas station without one asking for money.

Many are mental or on drugs and often get violent if you don't give them money.

Just now on my way to get lunch there were 2 blocking traffic lanes with their shopping carts, oh they like to leave the carts all over too.

No cops around of course. Infact I rarely see a cop here and never with a car or bum pulled over.

OK rant off. Thanks for listening.

I read that there are over 68000 homeless in LA. That number may be conservative. The Bay Area is another hotspot.

Seattle has a huge problem as well. The city parks are overrun with homeless and addicts. They are dread zones for everyone else. Downtown is loaded with homeless and businesses are complaining to no avail. Every major city has this issue but certain ones allow more leniency.

I sadly try to avoid going to the City of Los Angeles to avoid traffic, higher taxes, etc. Really is turning into a awful place. Homeless problem is huge deal there.

The homeless problem is so bad here that I will not walk down State St in Santa Barbara which is the main street here. Businesses complain of the homeless blocking their doors and sidewalks and are told they have to tolerate it.

Chris, not being flippant, but it is time to go. I moved in November 2012, and haven't looked back. I had planned on living in SoCal for the rest of my life, but I was observing things happening, and I could see trends. I firmly believe we got out just at the right time.

My son is stationed at Naval Base Coronado and lives in San Diego. Nice place to visit, nice climate, the homeless are a real turn off for sure. That's one major reason I wouldn't want to live there.

Homeless people's theatre. Hire them all to put on daily stage performances of various classic plays and they get a cut of the door admission.

Same up here. The first thing shop owners have to do when opening up is to clean up the poo and urine from the front and back. Then there are the syringes and needles.

California is a beautiful state. Iíve been there several times. I would never live there though even if they do build that high speed train to Bakersfield.
