Whittier neighborhood residents object to homeless Shelter

by Mark Brown

Greg Belfrage interviewed Scott Thorson, owner of the Welcome Mat Laundry.  He said has had to call the police often because drunken homeless people have harassed his customers or passed out inside his business. 

Thorson blames the number of agencies in the area that serve the needy and homeless.  Homeless people have been attracted to the area and, in turn, some of them have caused damage and scared or intimidated customers. In some cases, residents have been chased out of the area.
