Homeowners clash with ‘woke’ city that refuses to remove street squatters causing 'disgusting' hazard

 Homeowners no longer use their front porches and front patios due to the noxious odors emanating from tents (which include smell of feces)

Two Missouri residents who have been suffering for three years from pungent odors and lewd acts from a homeless camp outside their homes are taking the "woke" city to court.

Plaintiffs Richard Baumhoff and Steven McClanahan alleged that St. Louis refused to take action despite multiple requests for a settlement from the police and the city. Residents said police told them it was out of their hands and they appealed to Democratic Mayor Tishaura O. Jones was convicted.

According to a petition filed by two residents, Mayor Jones allegedly ordered the police not to intervene. However, the city has shown itself willing to remove homeless tents in some circumstances, as was the case when Vice President Kamala Harris visited St. Louis in 2023, the petition continued.

"Two people have been living in a makeshift tent in front of their house for three years," W. Bevis Schock, an attorney for the plaintiffs, told Fox News Digital.

"They've got a beautiful front porch. They'd like to go out... in the morning with a nice cup of coffee and... let the sun beat down on them and they can't because there are these scary, smelly, noisy people out there, And because of this they are not able to use their house properly."

Homeowners are feeling threatened by street squatters - referred to as "does and roes" in court documents.

“On some occasions, Doe and Ro have become aggressive towards the plaintiff and have started yelling at the plaintiff and others…Plaintiffs are afraid of Doe and Ro because of their unpredictability.

"Plaintiffs no longer use their front porch and front yard due to the noxious odors (including the odor of feces) emanating from the tent," the petition states.

Schock said the camp "smells like feces" because people use storm sewers as their toilets, posing a health hazard to the community.

"Plaintiffs' neighbors have observed [homeless people] spilling over the sewer, using it as a toilet. [The use of] storm sewers poses a public health risk," the petition states.

“This is disgusting,” he said. "These people are not taking bath every day. Garbage has accumulated in their house. They see rats running here and there. They throw their garbage outside their makeshift tent, which has a chicken coop. Things like bones are also included and this can bring in insects."

Schock said that his customers, who are "kind" people, had hoped that the problem would resolve itself, but they could no longer handle it.

"They yell a lot and it's kind of scary, and it's not that my clients aren't brave people who can handle someone yelling at them occasionally, but because of this it's uncomfortable for them," the lawyer said. "

The couple, whose home has no market value along with the homeless encampment, is no longer able to park in front of their home, use the front entrance and mow the lawn. They also fear for the safety of their guests, according to the lawsuit.

"Doe and Roe occasionally come outside to wash themselves. Doe wraps a towel around her waist but then exposes herself to the towel while changing clothes," the petition states.

"When Kamala Harris visited St. Louis and there were a bunch of homeless people living in tents on the City Hall grounds, she removed them all," Schock said. "I don't know where they went. They got rid of them for the big trip of the Vice President of the United States. So, they can take them out whenever they want. They just have to do that and that's a big deal in that case." Factor."

Schock says the city administration is made up of "woke leftists" who are "pro-homeless."

"They think that homeless people are doing what they're doing because rich, white people cause their problems and that's how they see it... So, they have no interest in the interests of the taxpayers. My Meaning, my people pay property taxes. They pay sales taxes. ... They're the backbone of America, just regular people quietly living their lives, going about their business."
