WEST HOLLYWOOD—The citizens of West Hollywood’s east side are furious over two recent stabbings committed by homeless people in the area. One of the stabbings resulted in the death of West Hollywood resident Christine Calderon, on June 18. Christine, 23, was walking with a co-worker when she witnessed three panhandlers holding up explicit signs and asking for money.

 

She took pictures of the signs with her cell phone and was demanded money from the men. When she declined, she was attacked and stabbed to death by Dustin James Kinnear. He was volunteering at the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition, as a server. He was arrested and has been charged with murder.

 

Citizens have reported that human excrement has been found in the local parks where mentally ill homeless run rampant. This has caused the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition food line to be criticized as one of the main culprits of the increase of homeless people in the area.
