I don’t know which is the more interesting part of this story, that there is a new bill that would make homeless dumping illegal, or that it was legal in the first place.
“The move comes amid accusations that hospitals have transported discharged patients to downtown LA’s Skid Row. Most recently, a paraplegic man wearing a torn colostomy bag was allegedly left in a gutter.
The new state legislation would make it a misdemeanor for any hospital facility or worker to transport patients anywhere other than their residences without their informed consent.
Offenders would face jail time or fines of up to $10,000.
Authorities say they are investigating 55 cases of suspected dumping on Skid Row.”
