CBS News Features Camping Guide for Homeless Debate

From CBS News:

The fight over what to do with the homeless people who camp out on 3rd Avenue between Rose and Sunset Avenues went on line this week and got very personal.

The president of the Venice Stakeholder’s Association, Mark Ryavec, wrote a letter containing a dozen names, addresses and pictures of houses where he told the homeless they would be welcome to camp out.

He mailed the letter to the people mentioned — including Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa — and also posted it on the association’s website.

Venice resident Karen Wolfe thinks Ryavec went “too far.” Her name is in the letter.

Debra Leshever, another Venice resident and homeless advocate whose name appears in the letter agrees with Wolfe. “I don’t know what the ramifications might be. I already got a scary visitor already today … he had a hoodie pulled down over his face. And he asked me very pointed questions. Harsh questions.”

Ryavec simply says the people he named support the homeless encampment — would they be so supportive if it was in their neighborhood. “I thought it would be fair to ask them if they would want 30-40 people on their doorstep. Or their parkway. Or their sidewalk.”

He also plans on offering any of the homeless people currently staying on 3rd Avenue, $20 a day to move in front of the addresses on the list.

Wolfe plans on filing a complaint with police.
