The ice/snow storm scared the tent city homeless out of there tents for a few days . Maybe the fear of jail will scare them away for good? The homeless are poor, not stupid. They know that “Being homeless is not a crime”.
Thoughtless council member Sandra Landbeck co-sponsered the ordinance. And the Mayor apparently put pressure on his Police Chief to support his attention-seeking silly political stunt. “Shady” McGrady doesn’t want to deal with a serious problem by building a shelter, he wants to entertain his wacky political base and get his picture in the Washington Post, before he is thrown out of office. The Repub-Aegis loves this bullshit too—it sells newspapers.
“The poor will always be with us. There is nothing we can do about that.” – Mayor Pat McGrady
“The poor will always be with you,and you can help them any time you want…” Jesus
