Read this Times’ article from the other day about landlords making money from housing the homeless and think about it. There’s something very wrong with this picture.
How New York City manages its homeless population is abysmal and really no city does a decent job. The homeless are one of the easiest groups not to give a damn about. They have no money or political power so they’re not of major importance in the greater scheme of things. People do feel bad for the population, but do not act on that emotion. I believe that the majority of the people do not care. They do not want to see the homeless on the street and when they do the first response is not to help, but to complain to the city to remove them. The homeless are people and should be treated as such. They are people who need help.
