San Francisco's way ahead:
BART Officials Appalled* By Video Of Rampant Drug Use At Civic Center
And over the course of a week, Gafford documented his trip to work. His videos show dozens of people slumped along a hallway, open IV drug use, unconscious men and women, and piles of vomit on either side of the hallways.


*Appalled by publicly.  Don't care about druggies in the station.

When I was a boy, we called homeless people, "bums".

They were run out of town.  If they wanted to live under a bridge that was OK, as long as they didn't come begging into the city.

What I fail to understand is, homeless have no place to live; very little food, but money for drugs!

Mmmmm---something wrong with this picture!
Next question:  How does a drug dealer make money off the homeless?

….no homeless camps when Florida had a 'Vagrancy Statute' back in the 60's: "Habitual loafers wandering from place to place with no visible means of support". Local sheriffs would put them on a work gang for a month or two, and then run them out of town.  Courts found that 'unconstitutional'. Sad

Seattle's liberal policies have created the homeless "crisis" that they are now trying to deal with. Get this. The city council just passed a $250/yr employee tax on their largest employers to raise money for low-income housing, even after Amazon threatened to move out. Their reasoning is that these companies have been prosperous in Seattle and now need to pay back to the community. The amount of the tax was reduced from the original amount of $500+ per employee. No, I'm not making this up. A large grocery chain has already closed two of its Seattle stores, saying that their profit margins are too low to absorb this tax.

I was on a jury last year.  The guy on Trial was selling drugs.  He would pay the homeless to go to a Free Clinic to get prescriptions for certain drugs and have them filled.  The homeless would then give them to the Drug Guy who would sell them.  The drug guy was caught with a large trash bag full of drugs.  He turned down a plea deal of 10 years.  Bad choice, we gave him 75 years.

This is typical liberal think.  Blame companies and taxpaying citizens for the actions of others.  Then after you blame them, make them pay for it.

Like the "opioid crisis."  Make pain medication hard for people truly in need so irresponsible people don't hurt themselves.  Even sensible people can fall into this trap.
