Crap The Homeless Guy Left Behind

For about two years, a homeless guy made his home on the densely overgrown slope above the Red Car Property meadow. For the past year, Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) worked to persuade him to move off the hillside (technically, a part of the Red Car Property) and into supportive housing.

Perhaps it was not LAHSA, but a skunk that finally persuaded this homeless person to leave. Two days prior to this photo, the slope near the encampment had a very strong skunk odor emanating from it. Or, he did some spring cleaning and pushed his trash down the slope. Prior to this incident, he had been extremely well-hidden and tidy.

Now we just have another pile of crap left on the Red Car Property. Why not? The City left piles of crap when they did brush clearance and every day, inconsiderate dog owners literally leave piles of crap all over the Red Car Property.
