Yeah well, when you live in a third world shithole…

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year’s record number of flea-borne typhus cases.

Even the city’s most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA’s busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

    Toronto has a rat epidemic as well. All this crappy cities spent more resources on posturing and protecting criminals than doing things to sctually help like garbage clean up.

    My brother’s friend had recently stopped volunteering on Skid Row in Los Angeles after several decades, His one and only reason was because the city policies have made it ever more unbearable. The filth and disease is out of control. Socialists in action.
