Bratton Admits Skid Row Displacement


Pushing people around from one problem area to another does not solve any problems – it shifts them. Comprehensive solution systems are needed to solve problems like these:

“Los Angeles city leaders launched a campaign a year ago to reduce crime in downtown’s skid row by deploying 50 additional police officers and declaring they would step up prosecutions.On Wednesday, even as officials declared success, Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton acknowledged that the Safer City Initiative essentially has shifted some of downtown’s homeless and mentally ill residents to other parts of Los Angeles.”Is there some displacement? Certainly,” Bratton said at a news conference where he, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other officials touted the drop in skid row crime.”
