Re: Jobless in America - Tent Cities

Seattle is Dying was produced by a Seattle journalist who is now getting hammered by the Loony Left in that city for exposing their corruption. Youtube had the video which got 2 million views but it has been taken down, probably due to Leftists' complaints. Try to find a copy somewhere. KOMO was the TV station. Shocking footage not only of the wasteland but of the mayor and city council meeting where residents were ready to turn violent because nothing was being done and the situation was getting worse! Cops' hands were tied and they weren't allowed to stop crime nor arrest anyone.

Found this comment from someone in the field:

Based on 30+-years experience with the homeless (missions, halfway houses, prisons, etc), it seems to me most of the homeless fit into one of four categories (percentages are notional):
1) Chronic Homeless - 40% - Those who perpetually make poor decisions (often addiction/crime-related); Includes mentally/emotionally/socially dysfunctional individuals.

2) Lazy and drifters - 35% - Often poorly educated with little/no interest in education or regular employment. Many would rather panhandle when necessary, move/travel when desired and assume no responsibility for living as productive members of society.

3) Circumstantially trapped - 10-15% - Those who try to regularly work, but, due to layoffs, eviction and/or other issues (ie; immigration), find themselves living in cars and on the streets.

4) Short-term homeless - 10-15% - Between jobs, homes, relationships, etc.. Rarely on the streets for more than 45-60-days - or in a homeless situation more than once every 5-7-years.

There is a great deal of 'financial enabling' that goes on under the auspices of what one might call the 'homeless industrial complex' -- most of which burns through government grants and funding at a per-capita rate that is higher than the middle income salaries of most Americans.

Re: Jobless in America - Tent Cities

Check out Vancouver - East Hastings - Canada too has a housing crisis. Apparently a few slumlords were shut down for apartment complexes that were too dangerous to live in. Now there is nowhere for the occupants of the complexes to live. Tent City. East Hastings St. Vancouver. Canada.
