MAN BITES OFF LAPD SERGEANT’S FINGER
A homeless man in East Hollywood bites LAPD Sergeant’s finger off.
In recent years, homelessness has become a growing problem in Los Angeles. With an estimated 59,000 homeless individuals living in the city, the situation has become increasingly difficult to manage. LAPD has reported a significant increase in the number of homeless individuals using public transportation, leading to overcrowding, sanitation issues, and general safety concerns for the public.
The city of Los Angeles has been working diligently to create more housing and resources to aid those without a home, but the number of people in need continues to grow. In addition, the issue of homelessness has become a public safety issue as well; with overpopulation and sanitation issues, there are increased risks of disease and crime.
LAPD has been working to come up with solutions to regulate safety for the public, but the sheer size and complexity of the homeless population has made its job difficult. It has been suggested that providing more housing and resources for the homeless population is the best way to protect both the homeless and the public. In the meantime, LAPD will continue to work to ensure the safety of those who use public transportation in Los Angeles.
