Should homeless be banned from sleeping outside? You have created the economy. And when people cannot find affordable housing you want to punish them. Wouldn't you actually punish the landlords who are over-charging? Wouldn't you actually punish the law makers who refuse to increase minimum wages? Wouldn't you actually punish the insurance companies who guarantee poor people cannot receive mental health care? Wouldn't you punish the Public Assistance offices for refusing assistance to human beings. No, instead you cut benefits to human beings and now want to punish them for sleeping outside. Only in America would it be a crime to be homeless.
