Default Homelessness

I saw that Los Angeles County has now found homes for more than 6,000 of its estimated 40,000 homeless. That's good, but there's another problem. The jails and prisons have been forced to grant early release to many inmates because of Covid-19, and a number of them are ending up homeless.

Damn.

Last summer I began spotting some people on the streets who didn't seem like the usual homeless people I see all the time.

They tended to be somewhat better groomed, and their behavior was more aggressive. They showed fewer signs of mental illness or intellectual disability. They also seemed like rookies, naive about life on the streets. Many of them were unprepared when it finally started raining on them after an eight-month dry season. Some would begin sleeping and making messes in areas where they should have known they'd be quickly chased away.

I suspect that many of them are paroled convicts.
