Driving and Dumping

News item: Los Angeles police are accusing their counterparts from nearby suburbs (such as Pasadena) of driving homeless people to the city and dumping them there, where they can get “services.” Suburban officials admit there was a problem with driving and dumping “in the past” but swear up and down they’re not doing it now.

Perhaps LA officials should return the favor. They’ll take other cities’ homeless, in exchange for driving and dumping their own gangbangers, shoplifters, and jaywalkers.

On second thought, perhaps Pasadena and its wealthy neighbors should stop acting like the priest and the Levite and take a personal role in helping the homeless get back on their feet. What a disgrace.
