The mayor of Los Angeles, a city with a burgeoning homeless population, wants to “help” by painting murals of those who don’t have permanent homes. Only in Los Angeles could an idea so ridiculous be hailed as a means to “tackle” the homeless crisis gripping our nation.
Eric Garcetti, the mayor of LA, outlined his new plan to tackle the region’s skyrocketing homeless population this week. Garcetti said we must now “recognize our common humanity” with murals “highlighting” his city’s escalating housing crisis. The nation’s second largest city has an estimated 50,000 people living on the streets as rising rents and increased crime threaten to make the crisis worse in the coming months.
