About your place?"]

A Cleveland police officer tells a homeless man, who identified himself
only as Michael, that no signs are allowed at the City Council meeting Dec.
6, 1999, in Cleveland. Citing public safety, Mayor Michael R. White has
ordered police to move along panhandlers and people sleeping on sidewalks
and arrest those who don't cooperate. The homeless and their advocates slam
the mayor and say the city is criminalizing the plight of street people.
