What a Trip Walked through Downtown #Portland last week with @DiscoveryCWP team. I was introduced to “rainbow and red dragon fentanyl,” an addict offered me “speed,” and I ended the day watching a homeless person pooping on a sidewalk. And locals say this is an improvement from last year.
This is Portland @RJBalpha continuing his journey throughout West Coast/PNW. He says sweeps continue under @tedwheeler in #Portland, but homeless encampments continue to spread further out from Downtown core. Similar pattern developing in #Seattle. San Francisco is Dystopian @RJBalpha was also in Tenderloin neighborhood. Bay Area is one of wealthiest regions in America and epicenter of Big Tech. Yet this is what’s being allowed. Greetings from Los Angeles Homeless crisis is out of control on West Coast. @RJBalpha driving through parts of California this week and documenting. These are truly America’s slums. It looks like a war zone.
