    Just in case you conceited responders haven’t guessed, ONE homeless case cost YOU
    $150 daily for a cell
    $ 50 ” for food
    $150-$450 OR MORE for medical care
    $MORE if segregated incarceration is needed.

    You better not complain about your taxes.

    The flippant sarcasm shows the problem. This is NOT a joke or even humorous as documented here and in the prvious report. Everyone is only one paycheck from failure. To quote Ben Franklin ($100 bill), either we all hang together or for surely we will all hang separately.

    Hello!!! This is yet another example of what happens when “news crew” give lip service and then disappears. WNET16 did a bit on homeless 2 months ago (December?) resulting in content filler but no follow through and this as a follow through. Someone tell me this is a not a connected event. Put Shawn Dunn on this and get some research. Shame on everyone from tax deductibles 5 OH whatever to do nothing government agencies to religious services to “news” organizations who let this drop. This one is on your door step. Rule Matt 25. 44.

    I can and have helped but no one listens.
