THE 5611 law. Or 23 SKIDDO seniors!
It was middle JUNE 2015, The streets of LA's urban slums were littered with homeless seniors sunning themselves, some reading paperbacks, some standing, moving only to buy another bottle of water and then running back to their stuff because that day, the City Council had signed a new law called 5611 that gives cops the right to take their sleeping bags, books, food, water, refrigerator boxes and shopping carts if the homeless person walked more than a few feet. So the distance it took to go to lavatory in the park or the cheapest Super for water left them vulnerable to having all their worldly possessions confiscated.
SYLVIA above, 70 yrs old, has been homeless for 5 years. They took her house. Not the tent, the original HOUSE she owned. See more on her.
Imagine that down the line, your job disappears, you lose your apartment, are evicted and have to make do on the sunny streets of So Cal. Then imagine that your box-house, bed, water and food disappear leaving you on hard, hot concrete and there is no way the cop or the city will return one bit of it to you.
Imagine you wander alleys looking for a plastic jug, a box big enough for a bed, some shredded paper for a mattress.
THE CITY OF L.A. doesn't care. This could be your granny and grandpa. You live l00 miles away. Your own children fill the house. No bedroom is possible for them. Your job isn't so high paying you can rent them an apartment. What can you do?
Though you hate to admit it, the hard concrete in downtown URBAN-IA has less mud, moisture and creepy crawlies than the prickley lawns of SUBURBIA so you have to leave them there with no bed, books, box or beer. You hope they are among the elected and selected for the beds at the skid row mission. NINETY PERCENT of homeless who should be in shelter do NOT WANT TO GO NEAR ONE.
Half THAT WANT --- are turned away. So severe is the forsaken, abandoned senior problem in 2015, that June, 2015, the 5611 law was made.
BE KIND TO YOUR HOMELESS; You have old sleeping bags that you will not use again. You have paperbacks to give away. Socks, undies, loose dresses, comfy trousers, blankets. SWEATS and Ladies' LEGGINGS. LONG UNDERWEAR IN WINTER. Children's clothing, books. Toys. Drive down to Skid Row and set out a pile of such much treasured gifts. But stand and watch them until the poor people get theirs because the cops will be close behind to take it all to the trash yard. They don't take the seniors. There's no place for them. INVESTIGATE THE SLEEPING BAG COAT
GET your MAYOR to buy a few thousand, distribute them. ONE MAYOR IN AMERICA DID SOMETHING TO FIX THE SITUATION. a DAILY JOB for any fit homeless man that wants it: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2016/08/11/this-republican-mayor-has-an-incredibly-simple-idea-to-help-the-homeless-and-it-seems-to-be-working/?tid=ss_fb-bottom
