California is quickly turning into a hellhole, if it hasn't actually earned that status yet. The areas that are particularly hit the hardest by state and local policies have been the cities of the Golden State. Look no further than this latest story out of Sacramento. A salon owner of 21 years recently had to move locations, not because of lack of sales or increased property taxes, but because the homeless population is simply out of control.

"I am angry about it as well. I wouldn’t be relocating if it wasn’t for this issue," Elizabeth Novak told Fox & Friends recently. 

"When I come into work, I’m never sure what I am going to walk into. I’ve been broken into, I've had my glass broken, I clean up human excrement off of my doorstep every week, cups of urine, things like that," Novak said in a now-viral post. 

"I have to fight off people to push their way into my shop, and are homeless and on drugs because you don’t wanna arrest people for drug offenses," Novak said in the video directly addressed to California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

"I have compassion, I love these people, but I’m not able to work at my business any longer," the business owner added.

"A lot of people are saying it’s a housing issue. It’s a drug issue,” Novak told Fox & Friends. "I’ve spoken with a lot of law enforcement in my area and they all have the same answers. Their hands are tied, they can’t arrest them, and a lot of people think arresting won’t do much and it definitely will."
