I am Groot Posted March 31 Report Share Posted March 31 3 hours ago, impartialobserver said: So first question.. its a big one. Would being taken to this "work camp" be voluntary? Could they leave at any time? If not, it is prison. Therefore you would need to prove that they violated the law and did so in such a way as to merit forced imprisonment. I know that you differ but the vast majority of citizens would not put vagrancy in the same class as rape, murder, or robbery. I'm not sure where you came up with the idea of a work camp as I never mentioned one. They'd be taken to jail for sorting. Those with mental issues would be sent to a hospital. Those with addiction issues would be sent to rehab. The rest, if they had warrants, would be sent to jail. For those few that remained would see social workers about just where they were going to live from now on because it would no longer be on the streets. And by the way, this envisions spending on temporary emergency shelters for the homeless that would be something like the rooms at the YMCA.
