In the 19th century, women in the United States were not allowed as many freedoms as they are today including rights that go along with politics of the nation. It's disturbing to hear an elected councilman not only disregard the Law in the Court's holding, but also reality, as voiced by homeless city constituent, "Edward Jones, a plaintiff in the original ACLU lawsuit who still lives on Skid Row," lamenting LAPD's draconian, class cleansing tactics, saying as the Court did, "I am out here because I can't afford to live anywhere else."
