Judge approves shutdown of large California homeless camp
Southern California authorities took steps Tuesday toward shutting down a large homeless encampment and relocating hundreds of tent-dwellers to motel rooms under a court-supervised deal with lawyers who sued to protect their rights. Scores of people hauling suitcases and pet dogs lined up in the encampment Santa Ana River to speak with county workers tasked with placing the homeless in motel rooms for up to 30 days as sheriff's deputies begin clearing the trash-strewn site.

"Scores of people hauling suitcases and pet dogs lined up in the encampment Santa Ana River to speak with county workers tasked with placing the homeless in motel rooms for up to 30 days as sheriff’s deputies begin clearing the trash-strewn site."
What will this late stage court ordered law enforcement action cost the community?
"County officials said the challenge was ensuring they were reaching some 600 homeless tent-dwellers who had been living on the two-mile (3.2 kilometre) long stretch of the riverbed bike trail since last summer, and not others heading to the encampment solely to seek a motel voucher."
The scope and breadth of "progressive" stupidity in California. O.K. let's sue to keep people illegally occupying the riverbed trail and let's try and make sure we're not passing out vouchers to those "taking advantage" of this situation. So, lawyers have won, the homeless have won, the neighborhood taxpayers have lost. In 30 days WTF happens when the vouchers run out? Perhaps they will return in larger numbers to get their next 30 day Motel ticket from Camp Voucher.
