And, they NEEDED to be emptied, as they were snake pits.

What happened killing the funding for the outreach programs, and for HOUSING.

I will remind you that continuuing to paint homeless people as mentally ill is erroneous, and causing untold pain to people who can't "prove" a negative.. they can't "prove" that they aren't mentally ill, and this is happening all the time, so mental illness becomes foisted on them, the drug companies make more big bucks with government money, and the game goes on.

edited to say: I posted about this yesterday. A local effort to build low-income housing for low-wage workers (NOT scum like me who aren't working!) is being shot down by the ELITE homeowners in the area because low-income housing is for all those "mentally unstable" (direct quote!)people, and what would happen to the children?

This is exactly the kind of problem that is caused by continuuing the myth of mental illness. More homelessness, because of lack of low-income housing.
