Defund homeless industrial complex

by Eric Matteson Saturday, Jun. 29, 2024 at 8:23 PM

U.S. Supreme Court ruling that cities no longer need to offer shelter to homeless means taxpayers no longer need to pay for it.


In 2021 the Los Angeles city council passed the 41.18 anti-homeless enforcement zones act that creates signed enforcement zones with signs like::

- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Beginning on and after
Friday comma, June 28 comma, 2024
No person shall sit, lie or sleep or
allow personal property to remain in the
public right of way within 500 feet of
the underpass at 11201 Kagen blvd and GOP FWY
. .
41.18 ( map )
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
It is extremely unfair to outlaw sitting lying sleeping
outdoors and the other problem is that they are way too
many 41.18 enforcement zone signs all over Los Angeles so
it seems like there is no place outdoors where anyone can
sit lie or sleep anywhere in Los Angeles beginning in 2021.

The Homeless Industrial Complex consists of several organizations that receive billions of dollars of taxpayer money to provide services for the homeless including healthcare services such as nursing and shelter service and drug treatment services.

Most homeless people do not have Internet service and are unable to e-mail their city council people to request a repeal of every 41.18 enforcement zone.

The most likely situation is that just one tenant who is afraid of becoming homeless in the future has written e-mails to just one city council person to request a repeal of every 41.18 enforcement zone that outlaws sitting lying sleeping but as of Saturday, June 29, 2024 there is still no progress getting a repeal vote to the floor of the Los Angeles City Council

Every organization that makes money off of the homeless that is paid by taxpayers has a moral obligation to restore homeless peoples rights to sit, lie and sleep outdoors because they are getting rich off of homeless people who are usually incapable of adequately advocating on behalf of their own rights.

On Friday June 28, 2024 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the legislative branch city council has the power to regulate public space without restrictions of any kind. In two earlier rulings the Supreme Court ruled that the legislative branch congress gets to decide who has to register for Selective Service System and congress gets to decide the fate of the potentially unpopular individual mandate that requires people to buy expensive junk health insurance that probably does not allow them to actually see a doctor.

When the U.S. Supreme court ruled that cities may criminalize
homelessness without offering shelter to homeless people.
it also means that::
  • Homeless people are no longer required to accept shelter.
  • Taxpayers are no longer required to pay for homeless shelters
    or anything for the homeless!!!

I have decided to terminate all taxpayer funding for homeless services .

Those of you who are working for the taxpayer supported Homeless Industrial Complex ( H.I.C. ) need to quickly begin demanding that the Los Angeles City Council repeal every 41.18 enforcement zone that outlaws sitting lying sleeping and after that repeal and after every 41.18 enforcement zone sign is removed by the city your organization will then be allowed to try to get its taxpayer supported funding restarted.
