That guy is aptly names isn't he?  They are using this as an excuse to
attack the homeless -- 10-1 those that are residents (live in their own
house or apt.) and whe "misbehave on the sidewalk" will be ignored.   I
don't know about other cities, but I have found here that 9 times out of 10
those people who are 'harrassing' businesses or whatever they think they are
doing to the business are NOT homeless, they are locals usually drunk, but
the businesses never want to hear this -- they NEED the homeless so that ALL
misbehavior can be blamed on them and those doing it that RESIDE in the city
won't have to be responsible.
