11:26 pm
there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values,
11:27 pm
i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask for you to caucus for me. thank you. dozens of homeless. they've tried reaching out to the police.. the county and even the property owner.. with no response. when you ask. we investigate. 13 action news reporter bryan callahan looks at the valley store that neighbors say has become a homeless condo.

11:28 pm "it has become a homeless condo and each day it gets worse and worse." other business owners say they have noticed the problem growing since that building was remodeled about a month ago... opening the door for homeless people to move in. "immediately they started. there was three then four and five." both businesses we talked to said they have reached out for help... saying the group has left them fearing for their safety. "we even stopped taking cash. you have to show me you have a credit card or you can't come in." within hours of our call to clark county... a homeless outreach team was at the building talking to those talk with us about his struggles. "i moved in here after i got evicted from an apartment." he admitted he was staying in the vacant store without permission, but said he had no other options. "if you are a good person, it might be really bad and you just have to stay warm for the night." jeff went right back inside after our conversation...
11:29 pm (as camera pans away) "if we were worried about you guys, we would have clubbed you already over the head and stopped you from filming and taken your camera." both employees said they know that will be the case until the property owner fixes the problem. "i want that place boarded back up." "until no trespassing is posted code enforcement to the property. if they determine there's a safety issue.. they'll reach out to the property owner and board up the office. some neighbors in summerlin say they're fed up with mailbox break-ins. i said, 'ok well we're one of the many... there's been about 13, i think we're number 13 from what the postman told us... in the summerlin area... we've been hit very hard with them. the mailbox on rodney pugh's block was busted open. you can see where someone pried open the individual boxes.. and rodney isn't alone. lee sondeno says he's heard about even more mailboxes his home. they didn't tell us to do anything, in the mean time
11:30 pm
local post office and they told us that there were about 30 break ins and it would take about two and a half weeks for them to fix all the mailboxes. with a wait time like that.. it's important to report any mail theft to your local post office right away. there's also an app called "next door" that lets people in the area post suspicious activity in their neighborhood. a disabled grandmother says she's worried about her safety.. and the safety of students.. because of something that keeps happening at brown middle school. cheryl tracy says they put up this chain about half an hour before school lets out.. and it blocks access to 5 handicapped spots. that means she has to leave even earlier to get parking.. or battle it out with everyone else for a spot along the street. i am angry that they won't work with me i'm not asking for a lot just wait 20 more minutes before you put up the chain the clark county school district says it can get chaotic when school lets out. they tell action news that chaining off the lot makes it
11:31 pm
a valley man is also concerned about the parking situation along a street near his home. arthur wasserman says as many as 5 big rigs park on this street.. sometimes for weeks at a time.. even though it's a designated residential area are there are 'no parking' signs. action news spoke with metro.. which says officers have written tickets on several occasions. but.. they say their officers are too busy with 9-1-1 calls to keep coming back. all of our stories tonight came from viewers like you. our 'you ask we investigate' team works hard every day to help resolve your problems. so.. if you need help.. let us know. send an email to 13investigates@ktnv.c om. and please be sure to include your phone number. thanks for watching.. and from all of us at 13-action news.. good night.

one of the areas that i've been particularly interested in is the area of children. all of us have a responsibility, to ourselves, to our children, to each other. we intend to be sure that everybody in this room and every child in this state is somebody. no matter where they're born, no matter to whom they are born. our children's future is shaped both by the values of their parents and the policies of their nation. it's time to protect the next generation, fill the lives of our children with possibility and hope, open up the doors so that every child has a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. i've spent my life fighting for children, families and our country,
11:33 pm
(crowd cheers) i'm hillary clinton, and i have always approved this message. i've watched as the house across the street has sat empty for over six years. i've watched good friends have their homes foreclosed on. people are still really suffering, and they're looking for somebody that is going to create bold change. wall street gave bad advice and bad loans over and over r ain, and nothing happened.
11:34 pm
because they know that he's not beholden to wall street. we need someone like bernie sanders that's going to fight for the middle class. we have to fix things now. sanders: i'm bernie sanders, and i approved this message. >> announcer: from hollywood it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, megan fox, from "gotham", ben mckenzie, and music from chris stapleton, with cleto and the cletones, and now, like last time, here's
