    “Undesirables”? Really?

  2. I also thought the use of the word “undesirables” was off-putting and has racial undertones. I am sure that people who are homeless do not wish to be in the circumstances that they are. And I LOVE how the city helps them by arresting them for open containers of alcohol. How about getting an outreach worker to go and help them get into treatment? I’d rather see my tax dollars used that way.

    that term should have been in quotes – it was the word used by DPR itself at the mtg.

  4. I think its silly that people thought the use of the word “undesirables” was off-putting and has racial undertones. That sounds more like projection of personal deep seated psychological issues rather than fact.

    Grow up. If you want vagrants doing drugs near your property, just to appeal to your liberal sensibilities, you need to step back and think how that is affecting our children. And there are enough resources to help them already – most choose to be vagrants due to mental issues. Should DPH “help” them by force?
