Tensions in Venice After Homeless Shooting

Hosted by

Last night in Venice, community members gathered at a town hall meeting to discuss the death of Brendan Glenn, an unarmed homeless man who was shot and killed by police near the boardwalk Tuesday night. He was 29 years old, homeless and unarmed. His killing has angered a lot of people in Venice and has capped rising tensions in the neighborhood as property values skyrocket and the homeless population increases.  New numbers on the homeless population come out Monday. In the meantime, what’s the situation like in the neighborhood?
