Quoting ℳonster's ℳom:" Honestly I just hope they don't walk up to me. I am always with my daughter and have pretty bad anxiety ... [snip!] ... her, but just in general. I've had a few bad experiences with homeless people that have made me very wary to trust them."I have to say the few times I've been to Cali I thought your homeless population was a tad scary frankly. You seem to have more mentally unstable homeless people in a way I haven't seen elsewhere & I have been a LOT of places. The only place I've been with equally scary homeless was a bad part of Amsterdam & I wasn't sure they were homeless....but scary still. I have been to Detroit a lot & the homeless people there are high in number but not nearly as strange acting as in Cali. Where I live there relaly is no homeless...seriously. There are people who look homeless, but most of us know their names & I have even known where a few of them lived. We have great social programs here & you can get a really nice small apartment here (if totally unemployed & no income or assets) for $25 a month that included utilities & I mean clean, no one is going to break in your place, you don't have to be scared to step outside at night if you want a cigarette, etc. My BFF lives in Cali - near LA & we laugh all the time that if it got out how "good" it was to be homeless where I live, they'd all come running. If you are homeless here you get shortlisted for emergency housing.

You are just astounding me withbyour crazy statements."No they made choices that caused them to become criminals which then may have lead to them being homeless. Read the quote I quoted in that post.

Quoting Rabbit™:" Regardless, it's called a PAST for a reason. Many people are judged for having offenses that are YEARS ... [snip!] ... walk in and get a job there. I know peopke who would give a limb to be able to work there, just to have a job. Myself included."I never said I was making a blanket statement. I know there are exceptions to the rule and the McDonalds wasnt as literal as you're taking it. I didnt say I wouldn't or didn't help people just what my initial thought it. I have had numerous bad experiences with the homeless so call me jaded. I get people have a past and it can come back to haunt them its life and it sucks. Im entitled to my personal thoughts about it. Even homeless drug addicts need help.
