Crime To Be Homeless In Santa Monica

Headline Legal News Posted on

Courthouse News is reporting that one neighborhood in Los Angeles has made it a crime to be homeless.

Officers in Santa Monica have been instructed to arrest all of those who are homeless, calling it a "crime of presence." They are being forced to other neighborhoods, including Venice, Malibu and Skid Row.

The ACLU has filed a class action lawsuit that seeks damages for, according to Courthouse News, due process violations, cruel and unusual punishment, violation of equal protection, the right to travel and freedom of movement, and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. They seek declaratory judgment, an injunction and costs.
