Response to Surya Gayatri (Reply #34)

40. I cannot speak to the Utah experience

 

but I have seen reasonable questioning about a story (this one) that gets propped up fairly often.
You might need to speak to some homeless people in utah to get an informed perspective.
Or, if you want to consider the realities facing other areas with burgeoning homeless communities,
Fresno would be one to appreciate.
I can speak fairly knowledgably about things in this area,
"Housing First" is being abused by those who do not truly care for the stated (and realistic) goals.
BUT THEY DO LOVE THE MONEY IT RINGS IN.

seriously. you know how many federal funds the City of Fresno has waylaid into law enforcement and other functions not
specified?

would you, possibly, expect the only local McClatchy paper to be a watchful eye?
That would be a mistake.
