Check This Out Street People, A National Disgrace
Vérifiez votre URL Many small cities in America are being overrun with what is believed to be an epidemic of “Street People”. Citizens are demanding action from their local leaders to remedy the situation as their quality of life is being degraded. In addition, with recent irresponsible legislation our streets and neighborhoods are becoming like the old Wild West.
http://shotokankaratedovernolien.fr/20989-dtf86388-listes-site-de-rencontre-gratuit.html Cities are responding to their citizens concerns by forming “Homeless Taskforces” that are addressing the quality of life issues. Some cities are more effective than others with some progress being made. We are seeing law enforcement being redirected, ordinances being re-written and strengthened, cities teaming up with non-profit faith based organizations, and encouragement of citizens to become involved.
In some cases those small taskforces join together to form a collaborative effort termed “Regional Homeless Alliances”. They believe by working together they can make a difference. What has become evident is that chasing street people out of one area and into another is just like shuffling the chairs on the deck of the Titanic. A substantial amount of effort and millions of dollars have been spent and the problem is not getting better.
Helping Hands believes these small cities will soon come to the realization that there is little they can do to significantly impact the situation. Cities are not equipped to deal with such overwhelming problems. The Street People problem is a national problem. Cities should be intimately involved but the problem is much larger than they can effectively deal with.
We citizens are tired of tent cities, car break-ins, and filth on our streets. Our city government needs to refocus their efforts to pressuring County, State, and Federal governments to step up and do their job of protecting us. Mental health and drug addition is at the very core of this current difficult situation. Our federal government has not dealt with the problem effectively and we as citizens have allowed them to ignore the situation.
Helping Hands believes until the citizens of the United States wake up and become active in government the problem will always be here. Write, email, or call your government officials to voice your displeasure with how they address this issue. Our government needs to stop spending money on inconsequential issues and start addressing this National Disgrace.
