#LAPD’s war on the homeless continues

Screenshot 2018-03-07 at 07.35.55.pngLos Angeles police are defending their stepped-up enforcement against the city’s exploding homeless population.

Elected officials seem totally OK with the latest wave of brutality.

“As a last resort, a tool, one tool of many tools, we turn to enforcement,” Cmdr. Dominic H. Choi, the LAPD’s homelessness coordinator, told the Police Commission during a discussion of the department’s year-end homelessness report. “We have to have a balanced approach.”

Apparently the LAPD sets the city’s homeless policy now.

The Los Angeles Times reports that there are 34,000 homeless people in Los Angeles. In 2017 the LAPD arrested 14,500 of them.
