More on criminalizing homelessness

In Ventura, California, homeless people are being arrested for crimes that don’t exist as part of the city’s effort to get them off the streets, the public defender’s office said in motions seeking dismissal of the cases.

At least nine homeless people were jailed at least two nights for alleged illegal camping or storing belongings in public, violations that should have resulted in tickets and fines rather than arrest and jail, Deputy Public Defender Jay Leiderman said.
