Dear Lyda Krewson,
Stop tearing down homeless encampments.
“The 9th Circuit had agreed with lawyers for the homeless who argued that prosecuting people for sleeping on the sidewalks violated the 8th Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment if a city failed to provide adequate shelter”.
On a sep note, imagine if these orgs/activist attorneys put as much energy into housing the homeless as they do in protecting their rights to sleep on the sidewalks… that would put them out of a job/clients. Same is true for any issue.
Supreme Court lets stand ruling that protects homeless people who sleep on sidewalk
Supreme Court lets stand a ruling that says homeless people have a right to sleep on the streets if a city doesn’t have enough shelters to house them.
