HOMELESS LIVES MATTER!

http://fox5sandiego.com/2016/07/11/man-charged-with-homeless-killings-to-appear-in-court/

This story rips me apart. There has been very little talked about this.

1. Sad, and scary. I am homeless myself

But have a van that offers me cover. Many in my circle do not. The hatred out there for homeless people is real, every day we are yelled at, hassled by the police, targeted etc.
I am glad they arrested this guy. But there will be another pop up soon surely.

2. its a very regular problem but it involves the poorest of the poor

 

and the richest of the poor dont mean a thing to some people.
dont let that kind of silence discourage you. real compassion is not
hard to find, except online.

6. 1980's, I was living in my car.

A church offered me sanctuary in their parking lot. The police were harassing me on the street.

There but for the Grace of God...

I've still got serious issues with God, my arms are too short to box and all that, and fuck all the special delivery shit falling out of the sky, but things could have turned out worse.

I've acquaintances who have suffered worse.

We are a wealthy nation. Nobody ought to be homeless or hungry.

7. If he is innocent of course he should be released

The DA office says that new exculpatory evidence was discovered that shows that Padgett was not the man responsible for the hideous attacks on four homeless men that left three dead. But there is going to be a lot of uneasiness in the San Diego area until the person(s) responsible for these crimes is brought into custody.

8. these kinds of attacks follow political winds

 

when local officials and LE clear out homeless people for some civic event,
it sets an example that psychotic hate filled maniacs of all ages will follow.
usually it is kids, sometimes drug dealers working out issues.
ever so often they set people on fire.
the sickness.
