CA Can’t Do Anything About the Homeless Problem, but It Can Dedicate a Day to ‘Star Wars’

In the state of California, roughly 130,000 individuals are homeless on any given day, including more than 50,000 people in Los Angeles alone. Footage of Steinbeck-esque shantytowns aren’t uncommon on social media. State regulations make it nearly impossible to construct affordable housing with or without the intervention of Sacramento.

Even the socially liberal denizens of the Golden State aren’t pleased with the situation. L.A. resident Shannon Peace thought of the man living in her building’s carport as an “unofficial neighbor,” according to NPR, tolerating his “elaborate encampment” in front of her parking lot.

“He had a laptop. He had a bicycle,” she said for a January piece. “And he used our storage bins.” Still, she didn’t do anything until “one day she came downstairs to get into her car, said her usual greeting and was met with a blank stare instead of the usual friendly ‘hello.'”
