The number of homeless people on the streets in Los Angeles is staggering. It's an epidemic that serves as a constant reminder of failed liberal policies that have become more and more unhinged from reality over the years.
According to one homeowner in West Hollywood, things are now so backwards that police are actually defending the right of homeless people to set up encampments in people's yards and threatening to arrest the law-abiding property owner instead if they attempt to dislodge the squatters! If this is now defacto police policy, private property rights have essentially been suspended.
The homeowner in the video is rightfully frustrated at the current state of affairs in California. WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE. Watch the full video below.

Look at the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles due to failed liberal policies, high taxes, and high crime.

Let me show you the craziest thing you've ever seen, okay? We show up to my house in West Hollywood, okay? Look! This is a tent from two homeless guys. I came home the other day and I'm like, 'hey guys, y'all gotta go.' INSIDE MY F**KING GATE. They jumped my wall and they got their sh*t everywhere. I'm like 'hey guys, you gotta go' and I called the cops.
The cops get here and they say, 'hey, if you touch their shit, we're gonna take you to jail for f**cking up their property. And I'm like, 'dude, it's on my property.' And they're like, 'doesn't matter, don't touch their shit.'
All f**king night, these motherf**kers are f**king all night, being loud as f**k, getting f**ked up having parties and sh*t. YOU F**KING LIBTARD F**KS!
