“Sidewalk McMansions” Are Popping Up All Over California As The Homeless Are Getting Creative



Across the city of Los Angeles, the homeless population has exploded beyond control. Although Los Angeles is not the only community in the United States that is currently struggling with a homelessness problem, encampments are sprouting up along LA streets. Because homelessness numbers have risen out of control, these encampments are attracting more people and have even been nicknamed McMansions because they now include showers, grill stoves, and even air conditioners in some cases.

Homelessness has risen thanks to the economic fallout after the coronavirus pandemic. With so many Americans out of work – millions more every week – some of them fall into homelessness with no resources available to help them. Because of this rise in homelessness, people have created tented encampments where they can find some shelter – unfortunately, these encampments are located on the city streets.

Some of these McMansion encampments in Los Angeles include running water and electricity. The homeless are stealing water from fire hydrants, which poses a fire risk, and are sapping electricity from street lights. These are used to power their showers and air conditioners and to make life a bit more comfortable for those living in the camps along the Los Angeles city streets.

One tented camp in downtown Los Angeles included a working shower and a grill with a range hood. It was a pretty luxurious living arrangement for a homeless person living on the streets of the city.

The coronavirus has made the homelessness problem far worse. Because California authorities we reworking to curb the spread of the virus, they failed to address the rising homelessness problem before these encampments got out of control. Now, these camps are so large that they sometimes spill out into the streets and block roadways.

“They are doing things that are obviously against the law and dangerous. No one is inspecting. No one is checking,” Estela Lopez, a local business leader, said.

Although Lopez frequently picks up the phone to speak to the Bureau of Sanitation about the tents that continue to pop up around her business location, they have yet to do anything about it.

“Just like they’re sending inspectors to every single business to make sure that they’re following code, why aren’t we doing the same thing with the public right of way?” she said.

Readers of Daily Mail contributed hundreds of comments in response to this news story.

“Good for them. Too many homeless and too many greedy constructions – fix and flippers in real estate. I hope they build on every sidewalk and take over the ‘Good’ churches that do not understand the human condition or even the basis of Christianity, Buddhism, and all other religions. That will teach people to not live in their egos and heads but to live in the here and now.”

Another person said, “If you are this resourceful, couldn’t you re-enter civil society?”

“In some areas, you can get ticketed for camping in the wrong part of the open wilderness, but this is allowed?”

‘Very, Very Disturbing’: Authorities Describe Scene In Hotel Where Boy Was Found Beaten To Death



Ohio mom Latina Marie Oates checked herself and her three sons into a Hampton Inn in Laurel, Mississippi on March 14 — but when she checked out three days later, only two of her sons left with her.

Hotel staff discovered the brutalized body of the third son in their bathroom later that morning. Not long after, the mother was charged as a suspect in the boy’s killing.

It is currently unclear why Oates, 33, drove her children from their home in Powell, Ohio to Mississippi, Laurel Police Chief Tommy Cox said in an interview with He also could not comment on a motive for the killing.

But when he and other officers rushed to the crime scene the morning of March 17, he says what authorities saw there made their blood run cold.

“It was a very, very disturbing crime scene,” Cox said.

The dead son, Joshua Oates, was 11 years old. He died of blunt force trauma, Cox said.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation put out an Amber Alert for Oates’s surviving 9-year-old and 6-year-old at 11:30 a.m. that morning, local outlet The Columbus Dispatch reported.

The children were “considered to be in imminent danger,” according to a bulletin by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Oates was arrested in a residential driveway in New Orleans the day after the alert went out. The woman’s two surviving children were in her car at the time, Cox told

It is not clear why the mother was in New Orleans, and the homeowners of the residence where she was arrested do not know the woman, Cox said. 

Oates has been charged with first-degree murder. Her surviving sons were with her when she was arrested, but were apparently unharmed, Cox told

Cox said he was impressed by the speed of the arrest and the amount of cooperation in the investigation, which spanned three states.

Oates was transferred to a jail in Jones County, Miss. the night of March 17, according to a news release by the Laurel Police Department. She was denied bail the following afternoon. It was not immediately clear if she was available for comment.

Saudi man sentenced to 1,000 lashes for performing oral sex on a camel



Jizan | A 26-year-old Saudi Arabian man has been sentenced to 1,000 lashes and two months in jail after he allegedly performed oral sex on one of his employer’s camels, reports the Riyadh Herald this week.

Abdullah al-Rashidi, 26, was tending to the herd of camels when he was caught performing a fellatio on one of the animals before local authorities were called in and proceeded to his arrest.

Al-Rashidi’s employer first hesitated before calling the police but said he could not tolerate such an act of perversion before God and that his employee’s actions needed to be punished.

“When I found him licking the camel’s penis, he first told me that he was drinking the sperm from the camel to cure his oral herpes infection,” his employer told the judge.

“I then asked him where he had heard that swallowing the sperm of a camel was a cure for anything,” he explained, visibly concerned.

“He then started crying and admitted that he just liked the taste. That is when I called the police,” his employer said in court.

Drinking camel urine is reputed to have many health benefits but sperm is not known to have any curative powers admit experts.

Teen on ‘female Viagra’ crashes into building while masturbating to gear shift



Bowling Green, KY | A Kentucky teenager who has crashed her parents’ vehicle into the house of a citizen of Warren County has admitted she was under the influence of alcohol, ecstasy, and counterfeit female Viagra.

The 17-year-old, whose name has not been disclosed by authorities, told officials she had lost control of the parked vehicle after she had an “uncontrollable urge to masturbate” according to the official Bowling Green Police Department report.

The young woman allegedly lost control of the parked vehicle after inserting the gear shift inside her vagina in what she described herself as an ultimate attempt to “stop being horny.”

“It seems apparent the intake of alcohol and drugs were responsible for this person to be extremely sexually aroused and partake in sexual intercourse with the gear shift and lose control of the vehicle” Deputy Sheriff, Jeff Maloney, told reporters.

Deputy Sheriff Jeff Maloney of the Bowling Green Police Department hopes minors and adult drivers alike will heed his warning not to mix alcohol and drugs with driving which “can end with dramatic consequences such as in this case,” he said during a press conference.

“I should never have allowed her to leave the party in that state but she kept rubbing her genitals on every doorknob. She was totally out of control,” one friend of the teenager told a reporter when reached by phone.

The teenager who had indulged in several drugs and alcohol at a local party the night of the accident was told by a number of people to leave after she was acting like “a cat in heat” and “rubbing her ass on the floor” according to another attendee of the party.

The young woman who was brought into the Bowling Green Medical Center for medical attention early in the morning showed no sign of health complications, said doctors.

Under Kentucky state law, the minor’s driver’s license will be revoked until she reaches 18 and may be required to attend mandatory alcohol or drug treatment.
