Venice's Homeless Hope Reporting Potholes Will Help Locals Like Them
The homeless in Venice aren't exactly the most embraced sector of the local population. To help their image, a group of them are out in the 'hood today reporting potholes they spot to the City of Los Angeles for filling on the upcoming Operation Pothole weekend, reports L.A. Now.
In Venice, "people who live in vehicles and on the streets say they are being vilified as criminal transients and subject to police sweeps." To counter their negative image, a resident and homeowner in the area helped organize the pothole reporting event.
