LA Wants to Take Skid Row Stuff

New, 23 comments

LA is going to ask the US Supreme Court "to overturn a lower-court ruling preventing the random seizure and destruction of belongings that homeless people leave temporarily unattended on public sidewalks." The city's been grappling with clean-ups on Skid Row for a couple years now; some of the residents say they LAPD and city workers have taken and destroyed belongings "including identification, medications, cellphones and toiletries."
