LA’S HOMELESS CRISIS HAS DOMINATED HEADLINES WITH GROWING CALLS FROM ANGELENOS WERE ACTION. WITHIN A FEW WEEKS BEFORE CITY COUNCIL COULD VOTE ON A PROPOSED CRACKDOWN ON SLEEPING ON SIDEWALKS. RULES CONSIDERED WOULD BAR PEOPLE FROM SLEEPING ON SIDEWALKS NEAR SCHOOLS, PARKS AND CHILDCARE CENTERS. RIGHT NOW THE LAW ALLOWS PEOPLE TO SLEEP ON SIDEWALKS IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH HOUSING, BUT THEY HAVE TO MOVE IN THE MORNING AND THAT IS RARELY ENFORCED. CRITICS OF THE RESTRICTIONS PROPOSED CALL THEM UNWORKABLE AND CRUEL. SUPPORTERS INCLUDING COUNCILMAN SAY THEY ARE NEEDED TO.
