HEY! I'm broke and homeless, so take your fines and .....

The Oregonian--
a frustrated Ashland city Council is considering an "exclusion zone" as an alternative to the thousands of dollars in unpaid fines for nuisance violations such as urinating and sleeping on private property by the city's homeless population.

I don't get it... why aren't these people paying these fines?
Like duh, they're homeless!!


Police Chief Terry Holderness commented that some homeless people who do have jobs must pay off the thousands of dollars in fines before they receive any money from their paychecks and that this may contribute to the long-term homelessness.

A violation of the exclusion zones would lead to arrest for criminal trespass.

downtown Eugene is littered with homeless people on just about every street corner asking for money.

Which I find very interesting because according to the US government and the University of Oregon, the recession is officially over and we should be in times of great prosperity.

But I digress... for whatever reason a person's homeless or for that matter is barely struggling to eat, I am sure that the last thing that is on list of priorities is paying a fine.

Get rid of the minimum wage. Allow me to hire a guy, provide him with room and board and a stipend.

I'll give him skills that will allow him to provide for himself, while keeping him off the street. But, alas, the Left would assert that I would not be affording this cherub the appropriate level of dignity. So, more important than allowing me to actually help someone who needs help, we keep this person on the street.

I love social justice. It's so justicey!

Screw the homeless? Well, a least it is still "about the children."

I may be a little bit weak on my history... but isn't that what the CCC's were all about?

also, if I remember correctly, they were later deemed UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

I have been fortunate enough to always have a roof over my head... but I do know what it's like not to have enough money to buy food and starving.

When you're at that point in your life... you don't give a damn what the labor laws says... you're just looking for ANY TYPE OF OF WORK so that you can eat.
