Why does anyone feel these people have a right to live in our public spaces, natural habitats and parking lots? Please require them to live in drug free shelters and seek treatment.

The entire apartment building could have gone up in blazes along with that entire neighborhood… clean up the encampments before its too late…

Just a matter of time until one of these campsites burns down a large portion of town.
