Documentary: (Don’t) Kill The Poor

Hosted by Nicholas O’Neil

The homeless crisis in LA has reached a fever pitch; tents line the sidewalks as people have nowhere else to go, the city sweeps displace the homeless citizens, and even the architecture is being built to keep homeless people out. If you don’t have a home, the city and its residents don’t want you here.

(Don’t) Kill The Poor takes an in-depth look at the multi-pronged societal issue that is the homeless crisis, through the eyes of homeless San Fernando Valley resident Melvin Aguele. San Fernando Valley residents recount their perspectives on the homeless situation, and an expert weighs in on its societal implications.
