Well wait until you become homeless or someone you know does, I think your attitude would change about the homeless very quickly. In todays economy almost anyone can become homeless.

I was a bit confused too ( Haiti vs. Puerto Rico) as well as deviations from topic, but...
Been through skid row over past decades when driving through L.A. and it has always remained the same. Most are there by choice, some by unfortunate circumstance. I've talked with some homeless and some conversations were enlightening.
For anyone griping about living within proximity begs the question: why not move elsewhere instead, they've been there (collectively) longer than you have, and do not possibly have the wherewithal to do so, where you'd be far better equipped to provide yourself the means.

To illustrate comparison:

i would like to think that i would seek help, but if i end up on the street and completely give up. then i am not in sound mind, then bleep knows what would happen.  i had a relative that ended up in the street, it took us almost a year to find him. afterwards he just moved on like nothing happened, it was weird.  he wouldnt seek help, but did not object to someone saying "your living with us now".

he was like "ok what ever", he clearly has depression.

 

sorry for hijacking thread, a lot of those young people out there are there by choice, its like its cool now.

thats just sad, they call themselves travelers.

those in the pics above are not the ones that make up the skidrow  near by

they have tents and stoves, some have generators, its like they think they are at some camp site at yosemite

@ cpunoob

 

Some good points there, if you become homeless you should seek help but much like mental health issues I think a lot of people are to ashamed to seek help and society needs to destigmatize these problems (homelessness and mental health issues).

Some refugees are safer and better off being homeless on the streets of LA than they are in the country they fled from. Sad but true.
