Government is just another name for how we make sure generous attempts to better the lives of the destitute come to naught, as reported in the Los Angeles Times today under the headline: “L.A. seizes tiny houses from homeless people.”

A man named Elvis Summers had been building and giving away small wooden houses with solar lights (and American flags!) to the homeless in L.A.; the city has already confiscated three of them on freeway overpasses, and plans to snatch 7 more of them today, according to the city Bureau of Sanitation. Councilman Curren Price ordered the theft.

The city is storing them for now on a lot, but will eventually just destroy them.

Summers has built and given away 37 of them, and says he’s now taking some of them back and into storage to avoid the city stealing and wrecking them.

Isn't there supposed to be a major methane leak in LA right now?

Seems likely that they want homeless people and everyone else to move on.

Refrigerator boxes would have been cheaper, replaceable and disposable.
