I’m quite happy to see that sit/lie will go to the ballots and was shockingly done by the Hairdo. Our homeless problem is pretty absurd as summarized by a friend who was visiting that saw all the soup kitchens in the Loin and said, “Huh, that’s not actually fixing the problem, it’s just sustaining it.” It’s also summarized extremely well by this comment left on the above article in regards to the Homeless Industry:
Allowing homeless people to persist endlessly in a state of homelessness is cruel. SF has clearly failed by “enabling” the homeless. Street people with substance abuse issues or mental disorders are only going to change when forced too with some “tough love”. There are too many vocal critics of such “harsh” policies because they make their living of the homeless population existing.
