Satan at work...live

Recently I came across this live stream.  It features the 24 hour doings of homeless drug addicts encamped on the streets in Everett, Washington.  Since going live in August, the steam has attracted 1,000's of daily viewers, and usually has a very active chat room.  They even have a Facebook page.

"What this stream is:
This stream is set up to bring awareness to the homeless / druggy encampment on the sidewalk of Smith Ave. A lot of these people do have homes but choose to congregate here and do drugs anyways. The people in this encampment cause thousands of dollars of damage to local businesses every year. Some of the things they do are smash vehicle windows and loot them, harass customers, defecate on the sidewalks and parking lots, thrash the gardens, and break windows on buildings. Recently they smashed out a $2800 window at one of the businesses. They also leave tons of trash everywhere that the city cleans up 3 times a week. It is an absolute mess and has been extremely frustrating to the local business owners. We hope this camera can bring an end to this issue.
FAQ -This stream is located at the intersection of 36th St and Smith Ave in Everett, Washington, USA. -These people do know they're being watched. -Crime and drug deals have cut down since this started. -The stream has been up since the beginning of August and will be up indefinitely.
James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Reinforcing the advisability of removing one's self from the urban miasma. Consider Thomas Jefferson's writings on agriculture and yeomanry.

Good thought, Sam. However sin is everywhere.

True; but the fewer people you have to deal with, the less likely you are to encounter evil ones. In most urban environments, you cannot avoid them.
