EXCLUSIVE: Homeless crisis takes its toll, prompting question: How much more can we take?


A Los Angeles Times Column asks, “How many Joes can Los Angeles take care of?”

The piece, titled, “Young people come from around U.S. to live on Hollywood’s streets. How much more can we take?” details the city’s struggles with crime and death amid a growing homeless problem that has taxpayers strained and resources tapped.

“I’m not suggesting there shouldn’t be a net for those who stumble, get sick, or get chewed up by an economy that buries more people than it lifts,” authorSteve Lopez writes. “But with nearly 60,000 homeless people in L.A. County and limited resources, should taxpayers who can barely cover their own cost of living be on the hook for every new arrival from somewhere else in California or the nation?”

He continues, “I’m not convinced we’re helping those who need it most. An average of about three homeless people die each day in L.A. County, while countless others suffer monstrous madness in full public view. I don’t think we’re working hard enough to reach the neediest.”

A new documentary is addressing this crisis. “United States of Tents” takes a look at the problem in a way that no one else in the media is showing you.

You will be shocked, saddened, and inspired by the stories – and the solutions – offered in this powerful documentary by filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch and two of his adult children, Denny Lynch and Ashley Lynch.

On any given day, over half a million people are experiencing homelessness in the United States – many of them veterans who sacrificed the best of their strength and abilities to defend the freedoms we enjoy.

The homeless crisis in the U.S. is real, and Americans are finally seeing the truth about this issue. “United States of Tents” not only exposes the crisis, but it shares real solutions.

Gregory: Extremely well done, the entire country should see it!

Donna: Wonderful documentary about the homeless situation and what can be done to relieve it. Wonderful to see the successes some communities have implemented to remedy the situation.

Pamela: I agree that everyone in our country should see the film. I watched it last week and can say it was very well done. It tugged on my heartstrings and it showed the neglect of our fellow Americans. There were communities trying to give them a hand up not a handout. 

Mary: US of Tents is outstanding! By showcasing many different areas, of the country, Dennis explained how this is far more reaching than people believe.

    It is a sad state of affairs when the veterans of this nation are living on the streets they fought to defend.

    Our city started a work program. They would take a bus around to all the corners an ask who wanted to work. The bus was never empty. Those homeless came everyday as were offered jobs. They are off the streets. Did that solve our problem. No, there are those they don’t want to work. AND THEN – you have your professional beggars. They find the busy corners. Park their sports cars/SUV’s all new and walk to the corners. They make anywhere from $40 grand ( bigger cities ) more. Some up to 80/120 grand. Be careful who you give money to. Some take expensive vacations

    Bet a wall would stop a lot of the drugs that half of um are addicted to so maybe they’d have more funds to get out of their situation…I’m sure pelosi doesn’t want to admit that

    The Democrats super left has encouraged homelessness with terrible high taxes ,outrageous gas prices and so on. Corruption is rampant. Please people, make them accountable, after all is your money that is paying their lavish life style vote. Them out of office!

    This is the result of Democrat Mayors and the Bush and Obama Presidency. Poor economy policies and not controlling immigration issues at the boarder. Put Americans to work and end homelessness by coming up with affordable housing.
