Suspect Arrested in Attack on Homeless Man with Pipe

This brutal random attack on a homeless man in San Francisco was apparently caught on video earlier this week, leading to identification of a suspect.

Video also played an interesting role in a different attack on homeless people in Berkeley last week. In that case, the notorious "Berkeley Ambassadors" accused homeless people of attacking them, and the homeless people were arrested and even plead guilty. Then video surfaced to show that it was the Ambassadors that were the attackers.

That "Ambassador" program, which is funded purely by big business developers to shove homeless people under the rug (instead of doing something to seriously help their situation) has got to go. It should be replaced by programs run by people who work with the homeless community, instead.

signing on as targets in The Most Dangerous Game.

Especially with all those uber-entitled tech boyz running around.
