Homeless people defecating on LA streets fuels horror hepatitis outbreak, as city faulted

By Tori Richards | Fox News

An outbreak of hepatitis A is spreading through Los Angeles County after leaping from a large homeless contingent in San Diego, threatening thousands of people and fueling criticism that local officials have not done enough to contain the deadly liver disease.

Hundreds of cases have turned up in southern California as well as Michigan — but conditions in Los Angeles, where roughly 50,000 people live on the streets, have prompted deeper concerns.

Reports compiled by volunteer organizations have faulted city officials for not providing enough accessible toilets as the homeless population sharply increased by 23 percent this year…

“One would think that Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world, would exceed these minimal standards. However, this Audit finds that in Skid Row, Los Angeles fails to meet even the standards for a refugee camp,” the report said

Fast-forward to September, and the county declared an outbreak affecting homeless people and illicit drug users. The disease also is rising among gay and bisexual men, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health noted in a Nov. 2 advisory

But so far, Los Angeles has tried to tackle the homelessness conditions by turning to a familiar California tactic: tax hikes…

“You have all these government programs going to illegals, they should be using existing funds [for the homeless],” said former Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich. “We don’t need new taxes, it’s already at a breaking point.” …

Even the state is on high alert.

After the county declared a hepatitis outbreak, California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown in October declared a state of emergency because nearly 600 people had the disease statewide and 18 had died.

Now, the California Department of Public Health is reporting 649 cases statewide with 546 of those coming from San Diego. Of the 649, 417 required hospitalization and 21 resulted in death…

The battle for adequate restrooms has been going on for years. Back In 2012, the Los Angeles Community Action Network predicted that Skid Row was ripe for disease in a report similar to the one earlier this year. Then, just as now, restrooms often lacked soap, water, toilet paper and trash cans.

“The City of Los Angeles has failed miserably when it comes to providing accessible and clean public restrooms, thereby creating and maintaining the human rights violations cited in this report and others,” the report said…

As a ofttimes-visitor to LA, I’ve seen the homeless camps in business districts around it. LA has three features that make homelessness rife: warm weather, plenty of open space including parking lots to closed businesses and un-patrolled railroad or utility properties, and a lack of visible law enforcement in the city’s sprawl, including LE’s failure to remove homeless from Metro bus shelters. While a seeming majority of the homeless are non-white; there are many white males also. Hollywood Blvd. has been a mess where homeless congregate at night and buy drugs with SSI money, using tourists as shields, like 42nd street in 1970’s NYC. The root cause of this situation is a lack of courage and decisiveness by elected officials, likely out of fear of inciting UCLA-educated “homeless advocates” and… Read more »
