Good. There are many solutions out there for homelessness. Many avenues they can take to pick themselves up. It's not our job to come up with solution after solution until the homeless finally get one they like.
And for all the bleeding hearts out there crying about how this prosecutes the homeless, if you're really that concerned, open your house to them. Go find one or two and offer to let them stay in your home, rent-free, until they decide to get back on their feet.
No? Thought so.
