Homeless

Right now it's not a crime to be homeless.  Who is being served by that?  The homeless people are not being served, they are abused and neglected.  The other citizens are forced to run a gauntlet of homeless people when they try and go to work, or go shopping.  

They can be treated for illnesses, fed, cleaned up, clothed.  They could receive counseling and employment opportunities.  They could be give access to all sorts of public and private assistance to help them recover from their problems.

People who are not ill, but just find themselves homeless can be hooked up with social services and released very soon.  People with long term illnesses can be treated for as long as needed.  People should not fall through the cracks.  We can do a better job of helping the homeless; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
