Carry pepper spray, the homeless in Santa Monica are out of control! Feed the rats in the park and they will turn on you and bite.

Please, please! We need to use our common sense! SM and Venice they are not safe anymore! It's very dangerous to run by yourself early in the morning at the beach. I'm very sorry for this woman. I agree with TK. THis is happening because we embrace all kind the homeless in this community and some of them they have CRIMINAL RECORDS.
