A city learns its lessonThe City of Fresno has taken a new approach to cleaning up after homeless people after losing a federal lawsuit.
City crews cleared trash and other waste from a homeless encampment in downtown Fresno, as the homeless helped.
Back in November, a federal judge ruled the City of Fresno violated the rights of the homeless when they destroyed their belongings. This time, they left the areas where the homeless live alone.
"We've let them know if you put it out here on the street we'll pick it up," said a city spokesman. "Nobody should have to live in this kind of squalor. So we're doing what we can. We realize this is a place they call their residence."
