Homeless in Venice Beach - Updated

Update August 28, 2010 - A Jehova's Witness named Inesita speaks with a homeless man on Ocean Front Walk

Windward Circle - August 23, 2010
3rd Street in Venice
Venice Beach has a large population of homeless, many of whom live in their RVs, cars, or vans. The debate on what action to take is getting heated with many residents complaining of hygiene, violence,  and waste disposal problems. The City of Los Angeles and Councilman Bill Rosendahl apparently are working on a program to help remedy the situation and it can't come soon enough. There is also a push for overnight parking restrictions to reduce the swelling number of vehicles used as housing. Of course there is also a large contingent who find a place wherever possible to get some sleep.
