Seattle residents blame inefficient elected officials for homeless problem, say they’ve ‘lost faith’ in system

Others feel preyed upon by politicians eager to push pet projects and scattered initiatives that make themselves look good but do little else.

LA residents fed up with officials, demand change after homeless crisis spirals in city

Well those fools keep voting for demonrats, so it’s just as much their fault as it is politicians.  It’s the stale stench of liquor and human waste that hits you first. Then it’s visual — row after row of dirty tarp tents crammed together on the sidewalk next to piles of rotting trash and broken appliances. There are half-dressed, drugged-out shells of people wandering aimlessly in the middle of the street.
