The richest man in America calls Seattle home. So do thousands of others who spend their days wandering the streets glassy-eyed and dirty. Some are on drugs. Others display clear signs of mental illness. At night, Seattle's homeless sleep wherever they can: in tents tucked away on side streets, in parks and under highway overpasses.
It’s the stale stench of liquor and human waste that hits you first. Then it's visual -- row after row of dirty tarp tents crammed together on the sidewalk next to piles rotting trash and broken appliances. There are half-dressed, drugged-out shells of people wandering aimlessly in the middle of the street. Some curse at cars. Others just stare. There are fights, prostitution and rodent burrows. This is Los Angeles and it's a disaster.
A burning vehicle sending flames raging along a fence can be seen in a new surveillance video obtained by Fox News that shows an attack last month at a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Washington state that the former acting director of the agency said Thursday could have killed "hundreds."
