Proposed CA Law Would Grant Homeless ‘Right’ to Urinate on Sidewalks
by Tony Lee
A California lawmaker has proposed a “Homeless Persons’ Bill of Rights” that would grant homeless people the right to urinate on sidewalks—which is described as a life sustaining activity—panhandle, and refuse the offer of a homeless shelter.
… The measure would also protect:
– Sleeping in public spaces such as sidewalks and parks
– 24/7 access to bathrooms, showers, water and clean syringes
– Car camping on city streets without restrictions
– “Life sustaining activities” such as urinating and collecting recycling trash
– Welfare cash payments
Unless some CA D legislators have an outbreak of sanity or Gov. Brown vetoes it (assuming it passes), this will be CA law come next year. So scratch SF, Oakland, Hollywood and LA from your list of places to visit, unless stepping over druggies, alkies, should-be mental patients and their urine puddles and feces piles is your ideal tourist activity.
