The homeless crisis in the US is out of control, and the situation is affecting law enforcement and border patrol agents in a unique way.

In Seattle, a police officer says he’s sick after being exposed to toxic chemicals while cleaning up a homeless camp in Sodo last year.

He has sued the city.

From the Seattle Times:

Officer Timothy Gifford, 38, contends in a lawsuit filed in King County Superior Court on Jan. 3 that he was exposed to high concentrations of the toxic chemical compounds polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) while he worked on a city Navigation Team to remove an unsanctioned homeless encampment along Denver Avenue South near First Avenue South on Jan. 8, 2019.

Dennis Michael Lynch (DML), founder of DML News App and, has made a documentary about the homeless crisis, and the images he captured in “United States of Tents” are amazing.

He took an in-depth look at the situation, from some of the causes of homelessness to several remarkable solutions.

In the film, you will see encampments and learn about the risks and challenges of living in it.

Below is a scene from UNITED STATES of TENTS:

Gregory: Extremely well done, the entire country should see it!

Donna: Wonderful documentary about the homeless situation and what can be done to relieve it. Wonderful to see the successes some communities have implemented to remedy the situation.

Pamela: I agree that everyone in our country should see the film. I watched it last week and can say it was very well done. It tugged on my heartstrings and it showed the neglect of our fellow Americans. There were communities trying to give them a hand up not a handout.

Mary: US of Tents is outstanding! By showcasing many different areas, of the country, Dennis explained how this is far more reaching than people believe.
