jaybeezey: What's all this then?
Notabunny: Unreasonable search and seizure, anyone?
GrizzlyPouch: I'm curious how people become homeless in America in 2013. I would think it would almost have to be by choice/don't know any homeless people, genuinely curious//DNRTFA but if headline is accurate that's pretty ridiculous
teenage mutant ninja rapist: I know most of them are addicted or nuts. But if the homeless population ever did become unified. Perhaps a charismatic hobo rises up and teaches them to fight.

Perhaps a charismatic hobo rises up and teaches them to fight.society as a whole will regret allowing the gestapo to steal from them. It will regret chasing away people who just tried to feed those folks.enough wealth exists in the world where not a single person should go without food or shelter. And yes the super wealthy should pay for it all. Hoarding wealth while people hunger is like hoarding water when people are thirsty.eventually they just kill you and take itChronic homeless is like 128k people at a given time in the USA.What is an 00.03% population going to do everyone in the USA. That is effectively 0%.If you throw in people mooching off government housing you get maybe 0.2% of the population. Still not a sizable amount of people to cause a problem.
Evil Mackerel: Notabunny: Unreasonable search and seizure, anyone?If your not cop , your little people.
Tom_Slick: hailin: relaxitsjustme: LA tried this and the 9th court said nope (2-1 decision IIRC). Unless you have enough shelter beds you can't kick confiscate property. Honolulu is getting ready to do the same thing and I can't help but wonder if the courts won't tell them the same thing. Since this is England I don't know what the laws are but I'm guessing they are walking a fine line./Matthew 25:31~46//Things like this make me hope there is a GodI wonder about the shelter beds. We have more than enough for our population, but the rules are they can't be drunk or high in order to use the shelter which means most of ours stay on the streets.I have always wondered, if you opened a shelter that allows say alcohol and pot, nothing harder, and offered low end jobs (say the guy who stands at road construction holding the "slow/stop' sign) as condition to live there (they get paid minimum wage and get to keep it all) Would there be any takers?
armor helix: Most of the homeless are homeless by choice. Not all, but most.
wambu: When you have them live near your house or business and are OK with that or actively work to provide the homeless shelter, food clothes and other services, I'll listen to your outrage over their treatment.Until then STFU.
EkimProx: If I'm walking down the street, I really don't like seeing people sleeping on it. Street is for walking, not sleeping. Learn to sleep walk or get the fark out.
