Dumping the homeless

A number of our readers sent in this story today.

It is the latest in a series of stories from around the country about people being dumped out of hospitals into shelters or onto skid row.

This one has extra attention because surveillance cameras show a woman in a hospital gown wandering the streets after a taxi dropped her off on skid row.

Whether this poor woman also had a severe mental illness isn’t included in the story – but considering past similar events in California, we wouldn’t be surprised.
