A homeless person sleeping on a bench.

Thousands of homeless people camp out in the centre of Los Angeles, in an area of about 50 blocks. In greater Los Angeles, there are 70,000 homeless people, who have set up tents under bridges and on exits and entrances of the freeway and highway system.

Mentally illness and substance abuse are rampant, crystal meth (methamphetamine) is available in five dollar bags and has taken over crack as the drug of choice for many of the homeless.
