I read that the United Kingdom may consider declaring homelessness a crime under the new Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime, and Policing Bill featured in a recent speech from the Queen.
It should be a crime.
Only I think they are considering arresting the wrong people.
The homeless are not the criminals, WE are the criminals for allowing our fellowmen to fall through the cracks.
And no, I do not believe our governments should be responsible, or that they should take from us and put our money into programs to care for the homeless. I think you and I should have been aware and involved long before it came to mental illness, and drugs, and lost hope, and a park bench or a darkened doorway.
