Capo Del Bandito: Can't we just eat the homeless?

That could be considered 'green' right?

We should grind up the homeless in meat grinders and feed them to the other homeless people. Keep doing this until we're left with just one really fat homeless guy. Then we roll that fat homeless guy into a warehouse in the middle of nowhere. Voila! Problem solved.

Can't they just follow homeless people around, harass them, and then pick a fight? If the homeless people start winning the fight, they can shoot em. Isn't that how it works in Florida?

It's a vicious cycle in Miami

The Julia Tuttle Causeway sex offender colony (also called "Bookville" by former residents)

Bookville is a much better name...

Any place in Florida called "Bookville" has to be done so ironically.

jaylectricity: the number of people living on the streets has dropped from approx. 6000 to 351

They went from an approximate number of homeless people to an oddly specific number. That's telling you they only need to arrest the 351 known homeless people who refuse to go to the shelter.

The aggressive efforts to attach radio collars and ear tags to them early on has really paid off.

Before anybody calls this a war on poor people, I should point out that rich people also aren't allowed to sleep under bridges or on park benches.

You know, we could just give them housing. Not shelters with strict rules where they wake everyone up at 6 am, not prison cells, just regular rooms. Like the kind people with money live in.

Where they've done that, the homeless have fewer health problems (the reduction in medical costs alone makes it worth it), don't get in trouble with the law for stupid reasons, and as a bonus to everyone they aren't shiatting in parks and alleys.

I know I sound radical. To be REALLY radical, I suggest we extend a right to housing to everyone in the US.

Most of the chronically homeless are severely mentally ill and won't go to shelters. I know, I worked at a shelter for several years.  Unfortunately, sometimes it takes arrest to protect some of these folks.

We need more facilities for the severely mentally ill and then we need a way to keep them in these facilities even if they don't want to be there.

The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

A few points:

Miami is a loose term for all of Miami-Dade County.

Miami is a very small city within Miami-Dade County with a small population, mainly businesses and crack heads. It's generally been an incredibly shiatty place to even go, but it has been experiencing a renessaince revival with the birth of new condos and an influx of people actually living down town.  One of the few things holding it back is these consistent homeless people who are really messed up in the head.

So please keep this in mind when talking about this problem.
