is "Sit-Lie" Law the Answer?
Original post made by Clean and Fair City, Old Palo Alto, on Oct 11, 2007
I think this is an interesting approach to a complex problem that plagues almost every city in America.
Homelessness is a very complicated issue, with no perfect solution. That said, we have got to find a way to successfully deal with homeless individuals in respectful ways, and at the same time protect our citizens from the unneccessary and unsavory actions and behaviors caused by *some* (not all) homeless persons.
Citizens, merchant, kids, and visitors shuold not have to endure aggressive panhandling, human waste in parks, fetid smells of the unwashed in public institutinos (like libraries), or vagrants that hog street benches for hours at a time.
