It Is Now Legal To Defecate And Urinate On Los Angeles Sidewalks
We’ve all seen the ‘Poop Maps’ and repulsive video footage of needles, garbage and people using the sidewalks of San Francisco as a giant toilet – well, get ready Southern California, because Los Angelenos are about to experience the same and more.
“FACT-CHECKERS” – THE FACTS ARE BELOW: READ THE ARTICLE – THE LAWS ARE LISTED AND LINKED TO. Yes, it’s LEGAL
The brilliant Mayor and City Council in LA are not only not enforcing what was once part of a common sense “disorderly conduct” code not to urinate or defecate in public – because there is no specific statewide “public pooping” or “pubic urination” law, officials have made it clear it’s perfectly legal to do so. And no one is being asked not to.
Los Angeles and San Francisco have decriminalized public defecation in order to make life easier for immigrants and the homeless. This is lunacy and diseases that have not been seen since the Middle Ages, such as Bubonic Plague and Typhoid are making a comeback downtown. Yes. In California it is generally considered “disorderly conduct” to urinate or defecate in public. 30California Penal Code 647 However, there is no specific statewide “public pooping” or “pubic urination” law.
Fact checkers – How ’bout you look it up before reporting it ? There was a vote to not enforce or bust anyone for it. That makes it legal. Get it? How about just watch the news? The real news, I mean.
No laws against pooping where people walk and drive? Rats feasting on the poop? Flies on the poop? That’s how diseases spread. Now every time I think of California, I will see visions of turds at Disneyland and other body fluids on the rides at Universal Studios. People are required to dispose of dog poop and LA is letting humans defecate any where they please, driving businesses away and making people literally sick.
The City Council voted to decriminalize the offense of people committing certain low-level crimes like lying, sleeping and setting up tents in a public right-of-way, urinating in public and panhandling. After decriminalizing defecating on sidewalks, the Chamber of Commerce might want to rename the city, “Los Asselos”
What’s disturbing as well is that they also decriminalized camping out on private land, even in an RV or elaborate tent with no way to see what’s going on inside, so drug dealers can set up shop pretty easy. And what cop would want to go in there looking for suspects? So now you can go out to get your morning paper, but it’s not there, because the person camping on your front lawn is using it to wipe after defecating on the sidewalk in front of your house.
City leaders and immigrant rights advocates argued the changes will protect LA’s immigrant and homeless community from facing unintended consequences.
If a person does not have the cognition to use a public facility, then he or she is likely under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or is mentally ill, and therefore should not be on the streets to begin with. Los Angeles used to be a great clean city. Now that the liberals have a stranglehold on it, and it will literally go into the crapper. Pun intended.
Opinion by Raymond Draper II – Gavin Newsom could not care less about the homeless, trust me – he has done everything to make it worse and he knows it. San Francisco, where he was Mayor is a turd pool and Los Angeles is now full of Medieval diseases, thanks to the Mayor there and now Governor Newsom, who spend never-ending tax dollars on I don’t know what.
They pass bills allowing people to put up tents on the sidewalk, live anywhere, shit in your yard, shit in front of your business, whatever. California sucks and it’s Democrat’s fault. They are in charge and have been for a long time but guess who they blame? Big business and you – the citizen.
On the other hand, I guess they’re right – we did vote them in…
Homelessness has skyrocketed in the state of California. Los Angeles in particular has witnessed a massive increase. Between 2018-2019 the county’s homeless population grew by 16%. The city of Los Angeles experienced a similar phenomenon as its population grew at a slightly slower rate. The thousands of new people calling the streets their home has far surpassed the city’s sanitary capabilities. The sheer amount of people now eating and defecating in the California heat has allowed previously rare diseases to proliferate. It has reached the point where there is a real threat of a bubonic plague outbreak occurring in Los Angeles.
San Francisco is a city of extremes. It has more billionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world, but it also has a homeless problem so severe that it rivals some third-world nations. On any given day you can see souped-up Lamborghinis and blinged-out trophy wives in one part of the city, then walk over a few blocks and see piles of human feces, puddles of urine and vomit caked on the sidewalks. The misery of homelessness, mental illness and drug addiction hits deep in San Francisco and has turned parts of a beautiful city into a public toilet.
All politicians agree that the best way to combat the threat is by solving the homelessness problem. Some politicians have blamed Los Angeles county’s notoriously high real estate prices as the source of the crisis. While others claim that the homeless population is a direct consequence of California’s failed policies on managing the mentally ill and drug-addicted. There have been many reports such as the one commissioned by the National Coalition for the Homeless that supports the latter group’s claim. The National Coalition for the Homeless study found that 64% of the homeless population is dependent on some inebriating substance. The same report concludes that “[s]ubstance abuse often leads to homelessness.”
Housing and Urban Development conducted a similar study pertaining to homelessness and found that 45% of the homeless population in America possesses some degree of mental illness.
As the problem grows, residents are finding themselves at a crossroads. The compassion for those struggling is constantly being challenged by a fear for their own safety and quality of life. It never had to get this bad, say critics, who are appalled that it’s getting worse every day.
The increased homeless population has caused an influx of trash and feces on the streets of LA. According to a study by Reform California, this has allowed for the state’s rat population to flourish, which, in turn, has lead to an increased risk of rodent-borne disease.
Reform California says that there have been 124 confirmed cases of Typhus in Los Angeles County. Typhus has not been the only medieval disease to reappear. The bubonic plague — the same one that wiped out a third of Europe over 600 years ago — could be present in LA today, according to The New York Post. The Bubonic plague has been nearly non-existent in LA with only three cases of it in the past 40 years, but experts believe that there could already be plague victims present in the city.
The governor of California, Gavin Newsom, has admitted that the state has a problem. “Our homeless crisis has increasingly become a public health crisis … And now, typhus [is] in Los Angeles. Typhus. That’s a medieval disease. In California. In 2019,” he said. He is expected to sign AB-932 which is a bill to produce more shelters for homeless people. The legislative piece recently passed the state senate, but how much it will help address the complex problem remains to be seen.
Newsom is a threat to us all.
