Now, Cops Are Using State Law to Justify Lightning-Quick Tows


Duh, the reason is that housing is no longer affordable. If any city or county doesn't want people living in their vehicles, all they need to do is raise incomes or lower housing costs so everyone can afford housing. These totalitarian policies of instant-towing are not solutions. It's more like fascism. It takes away someone's home. Thus causing homelessness. It's the worst policy I have ever heard!
unfortunately, just "raising incomes or lowering housing costs" goes against basic principals of economics. the market will adjust accordingly and continue to resist outside manipulation; supply and demand etc...
I don't understand why folks think they can just camp next to other people's homes, businesses, etc. without permission and expect to be able to do so? I would expect to be jailed if I did something like this. Move to the Midwest where the cost of living is much less. You can rent or buy a home for cheap there.
Why does everyone (including the homeless advocates) never talk about the raw sewage/garbage spilling out of these RV's, or the drug use and criminal activity that these people partake in? What's the answer to those things? What's the response to the neighborhood residents regarding these issues? Just live with it?

The Mercury finally mentioned these things, but no mention from the advocates or the commenters.

And if you think these people are living this way because they can't afford rent, you're wrong. These people have addictions... and only they can decide when they want to quit.

In the meantime, I don't want them parking their RV's in my neighborhood anymore (the city just made 4 RV's move off my block, but I'm sure they'll soon be back)... do you?

Please wait...
