Homeless encampment found suspended under Los Angeles overpass

Here's video of firemen cleaning out some of the stuff they found:


*Update: The LA Times has the story.

**Think that's weird? How about living inside a garbage truck.


  1. Oh man, that's somebody's life being strewn on the ground. They've survived in this hostile place for such a long time.

  2. I hope he found a more hospitable place to live, and is safe and well.

  3. Actually, I do think that's a more comfortable place than many other homeless guys live in. I'd go as far as saying, it makes him not entirely homeless at all.

    Since they do "clean out" his home, I do hope they have a better replacement for him - as by living down there, he didn't harm anyone, and gee, they just raided and threw away his entire home.

  4. You know... he really wasn't hurtin anything up there. Why not just leave the poor guy alone?!

  5. Because if he fell... he could sue.. keeping him up there is a liability for the city. However I agree that it stinks they couldn't let him stay up there.
