Our local homeless peoples

Well, today I saw how we (they?) handle the (mentally ill, homeless, lost souls) in Hyde Park. A "cleanup" crew consisting of a garbage truck and a supervisor in a Streets and Sanitation pickup took most of the (anyone know his name?) stuff (personal belongings?) from the man under the 55th Street viaduct and removed it.

Notice the lack of specific information in that paragraph. Who is this man? Is he a benign being or a ticking time bomb? Who...

Well, today I saw how we (they?) handle the (mentally ill, homeless, lost souls) in Hyde Park. A "cleanup" crew consisting of a garbage truck and a supervisor in a Streets and Sanitation pickup took most of the (anyone know his name?) stuff (personal belongings?) from the man under the 55th Street viaduct and removed it.

Notice the lack of specific information in that paragraph. Who is this man? Is he a benign being or a ticking time bomb? Who sent the trucks? Why wasn't there a person there to offer him help? Now what happens? We bring him more blankets to write on because it will be freezing tonight and the cycle starts all over again.

I admit, the pile of leftover food he made in the middle of the street this weekend was a digusting mess and the pigeons were loving it. Was this a message about Thanksgiving? Was it his way of showing us we have more than enough to eat, more than he can eat, more than the fowl can consume?

I don't know. But one thing about Hyde Park, it is a safe place for people like this to inhabit. That's not a bad thing. I just wish we would talk about it more. There's a lady in a chair on 51st. A man writing (is it jibberish, or a message?) on 55th. There's Pierre on 53rd and Blackstone (if you don't buy, sell, or trade with him, you should) and several more that we rarely see.

They are the invisible people. But only to those of us who don't want to see them.

Discuss.

    Mentally I'll people need more than a "home".

    It's PC propaganda that the problem is because mean rich people have denied these people homes and that they are just like the rest of us, only they don't have a home.

    Crazy people can and do destructive things like that crazy Islamic extremist who just killed hostages in Australia after living a hateful crazy, extremist life for many years.
