Washington state lawmakers propose making permanent homeless encampments legal statewide, that will likely increase the spread of garbage, drug needles and human excrement on the streets across the state. Seattle’s homeless population of 12,000 people has become a crisis. The bill is an attack on taxpayers, residents and civilization itself. Jason Rantz explains that the city of Marysville has been effective in dealing with its homeless problem by instituting a program that involves police officers and social workers connecting with homeless people offering help with detox and transitional housing. If the homeless person refuses, they are put in jail. The objective is to return the person to a position where they can contribute to society.  Some homeless people refuse help and to go to shelters because they do not want to follow rules.
