A beautiful woman is standing on a bridge, looking over the side and thinking about jumping off.

A homeless man walks up to her.

She sees the man coming and says, "Go away! There's nothing you can say to change my mind!"

He says, "Well, if you're going to kill yourself anyway, why don't we have sex? At least I'll enjoy it."

"Absolutely not! You're disgusting!", she replies.

The man turns and starts walking away.

"Is that all you're going to say? You're not going to try to convince me that life is worth living? Where are you going?"

"I have to make it down to the bottom. If I hurry, you'll still be warm!", he says.

To be fair, there are some mentally damaged individuals with alcohol dependency issues in Columbia, SC.

And I don't mean the homeless people.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Meh. If old movies have taught me anything its that this isn't really a problem. The homeless in SC will just tie a blanket to a string, hop on an empty boxcar and jump off in another state. The residents of the new town they come into will be suspicious and rude, at first. But, at the lowest moment, they'll be presented with an opportunity to redeam themselves, like saving a baby from a well, or beating up an attacker who was trying to rape the mayor's daughter. The police will think that the homeless man is the suspect, but the mayor's daughter will throw herself to protect him and let the local sheriffs know that he actually SAVED her. Meanwhile, evidence left at the scene will reveal that the real rapist is actually a powerful socialite who has been the leader of the towns anti-homelessness movement. He tries to run, but after a breif struggle with the homeless man, who is now a hero, he is brought to justice.

Fast forward to a year later...the homeless man, who is now married to the mayor's daughter, is in charge of a state-of-the-art center where the homeless from across the nation come to be treated with dignity and get job training. He'll go back to South Carolina for a business meeting where he'll meet face-to-face with the legislator who ran him out of town. The legislator, knowing that he's been defeated, is about to speak when the homeless man interups and says, "thank you for not believing in me". Then, he casually walks down the hall to go to his meeting. The legislator stands, with a look on his face that lets
you know he now understands the error of his ways.

Meh.   Modern movies have taught me that it will end in gunfire, CGI explosions, lens flare and gratuitous nude scenes.

This sounds like a dangerous situation that might make desperate people do drastic things.

I wonder who will draw first blood.

Quite a few cities would be happy to extradite, without even be asked, their criminalized homeless to Columbia SC or just Columbia anywhere.

We never thank this war hero enough for his help in making homeless a household word.

If these people didn't want to be homeless they should have done the hard work necessary to not be mentally ill. But they were lazy and now the rest of us have to support them.
