As for those who don't want to comform to society - - there's always tent dorms in the desert.

Why ruin our deserts? I'm sure we could reach an agreement with our good buddies in Russia to ship them to some forgotten gulag out in the middle of nowhere and keep them for pennies a day. Outsource the problem. Cargo plane them in. Put them in a camp 3,000 miles from the nearest person who speaks English and you wouldn't even have to build walls. The tundra wolves would be the guards. Maybe give them Internet, but... why bother?

What is your solution to the problem? Seriously, we can all sit behind a screen, complain, and be horrified.
But, that solves nothing.

"No Loitering" signs might help, or "Tent/Sidewalk Crash Pads" will be towed 24hr notice"; of course citywide ordinance plans need to be in place. Monetize (bid it) the removal of offenders (normally nomadic by behavior anyway) by private companies is a WIN.


Hey! Thank you. For actually trying to address the issue.

It is a serious problem.

My solution? Enforce loitering laws, and do not allow living and sleeping on the streets. Spend the $$$ from cleanup on opening/funding shelters. Provide tax incentives to local building owners who make parts of their building available for use as shelters. Invest in addiction assessment/treatment centers.

What is your problem?

I think all those who live in that 30 block area should go to a real nice neighborhood and crap on the sidewalks there

Some of those neighborhoods used to be nice.

This is not a political issue; it's a human issue. This isn't just a poop problem. It's a sanitary problem. Not liberal-not conservative although it would be great if the private sector were more involved. The poop spraying is a private response and a good one unless there are sanitary problems. It's not poop it's people. Can't power spray them away.

That sounds like reasonable requests for the office.

edit:

You'll also need a laser point to point out any spots you dept workers miss. Don't settle for low wattage.

So, only liberals are homeless.

Did you tell all those mentally ill homeless people they're liberals?

And we don't count them anymore because of statistics?

Well, the homeless I talked to on the CA beaches - - say they're there because of the weather.





I never said the homeless were liberal, your creating straw man arguments because you can refute what I’m saying, which is:

Liberal policy’s created the issues you see in San Fran and Seattle

But I’m sure your rebuttal to that will be
“ so your saying we should burn down all city’s”

I would hope that would be incorporated into my scepter. Oh, I forgot to mention that. A scepter and an orb filled with Imodium that I can hand out like mints.

Wastrels are not idiots. They congregate in areas they are least harassed (weather permitting).

I'm glad you care about them. Invite them into your home, give them a meal, let them shower and use your loo. Wash their clothes. Perhaps they can sleep inside a bit. Make a lot of new friends that way.

Kind regards,

Bally


Show me where I said anything that relates to your post.


You care about them. You talked to them on the beach. They were there because of the weather. Just offering a small solution for someone who cares.

Kind regards,

Once again, all reasonable. The mints, almost mandatory and a great idea. You are clearly the right person to be czar.

The pressure washer would aerosol much of the shi, I mean feces. These tiny droplets of poo would be in the air for, who knows how long ( 10 to 15 minutes traveling 10 maybe 20 yards).
I wouldn't think of doing that even in my level C suit ( see avatar to the left) with a PAPR unit. That and the liability of some one getting sick.

They could just paint the sidewalks brown and burn a lot of incense and make coprophagic flies the state bird.
