Reading the article tells that he receives nearly $1K/month in Social Security benefits, spends $600+ for his apartment, eats for free and basically has $300/month to spend on 40 oz. bottles of beer. He willfully ignores all court summonses and tickets he's received without punishment.
Back in Vancouver BC where I’m originally from, they had the same issue with crack addicts. The solution? MORE drugs to the junkies BUT regulating it..Same ole’ socialist crap in every socialist city.
We even have a special date called “Mardi Gras” where everyone on welfare would get their welfare checks and spend it on crack and booze...which would obviously put the hospitals on red alert due to the numerous people who OD’d. Love socialism..
What help could you give a man who does not want it? This is the life he chooses. He will pass out on the sidewalks and eventually die, no matter what anyone does. If the state gives him money, he’ll buy booze. If not, he’ll find some other way to get money to buy booze.
I’m okay with the latter, not the former. It’s his life, if he wishes to end it this way, it’s his decision. I just don’t see why the rest of the people should be compelled to pay for it.
