Having read the article and looked at the postings, the following can be stated:
A cage, no matter how guilded and plush is still a cage. Here are some of the problems that are coming out. The first is the point of homeless
people, at times they are a problem to businesses, as having lived in a place where there was a large homeless population, the points of them
loitering and or urinating in public is a valid one. There are often unseen problems that such people have, and many can not or do not want to go for
help or assistence, or don't know where to go for assistence for such.
These problems range from mental, to physical, to addiction and other kinds of problems that sometimes no one can help. I have seen all kinds, and
yet what to do about them?
Do you honestly think that a business wants to be so cruel as to see such imprisoned for begging or having no place to go? But at the same time, when
it runs away your business, or deters customers then the businesses do have a right to complain and ask that something be done.
People become homeless for a large variety of reasons, and there has to be a way for them to help themselves, the biggest issue is the red tape to get
the social services required to help them out of a bind. Some of which the first question is going to be, at this location, will there the the
doctors, the professionals and other people who can give said assistence, or is it still going to be spred out? In most large cities, the doctors
office is one place, the pharmacy is in another, the people who can give one set of social services are at another place, and more. And what about
the population, are they going to say split up families, or allow them to keep together, what about the male and female population, will this now be 2
seperate population and then there are the children, do the get removed from the mix, furthering making things worse? There is not enough known about
this, save that it does not appear to be a good idea. It looks for all intents and purposes a debtors prison.
If it passes, the sad part is that to challenge the law, people are going to have to go through the process of being taken there, leaving and getting
arrested, then going to court, once that happens it can be challenged and removed, and then all of those brought in, under these laws can turn around
and sue, well at least the bright note is that they will no longer be poor, but the city will suffer for it.
