Too many nice folks enabling homelessness, by giving out food and drinks to those that remain sitting – lying on the sidewalks, those homeless stays on the sidewalks instead of taking up the City’s and various agencies’ offer for mental assistance, shelter, etc.
Is it good to see this OR not?
OK, so this poor middle-age lady ‘Carol’ apparent homeless and intoxicated gets this sistah to give her a drink… This is keeping the cycle of the ‘Carol’ to panhandle, gets high, then sits- lies on the sidewalk repeatedly each day.
Ironically ‘Carol’ under a NO sit and lie sign fronting the Maunakea Marketplace – where’s the enforcement? where’s the help she needs (beyond a drink)?
