Let's not pretend that there is not enough in this world, or country, to go round. I've worked with the homeless. I've befriended the homeless. I've given the homeless spots on my floor when I was younger and without children. Where do you think all of these abused people go? After they've been let go and are not useful anymore? After they've been tormented into mental illness? They are on the fringes of society. Living lives you could not imagine. In one year, where I worked and talked to these people on a daily basis... there were at least 5 bodies dumped in the same exact location across the street from where I took my smoke breaks, all homeless people. NO NEWS COVERAGE. I saved one man personally from being beaten and robbed. It's NOTHING in shelters for violence and murder to be the norm. I called the shelter (a men's shelter) to let them know plenty of times that there was violence happening to certain people and asked them to watch over them. It was falling on nonchalant ears. Nobody cares about the people on the fringe. They are the crazies. They are the addicts. They are the people who wouldn't know how to sign a lease if one was put in front of them. They are the forgotten and continually abused.
