The women's movement accomplished a virtually complete abdication of any rights for women. No wonder it is finally dying out. Women won the righst to kill their offspring, parent alone, live in poverty, and become wholly dependent upon federal handouts. Great progress, ladies.

The best way to end our "homeless" problem is to offer this population group the Detroit homes for $100.
If they refuse this offer, we no longer have a homeless problem. We then have another problem, but it can no longer be called "homelessness".
Then we have an illegal camping problem with their abiding public health and safety dimensions that require consequences when in violation. But it is no longer "homelessness" .
It goes a long way to place those who want homes into these $100 Detroit homes, and then evaluate the remainder population who are officially no longer "homeless".

When they purchase their own home in Detroit for $100, they can carry on how ever they want as long as they confine their activities to their own new four walls. And clean up after themselves, so they don't burn the neighborhood down.
There is freedom when one owns their own home. This is a solution waiting to solve a major problem. It should not be ignored. Diversion to Detroit.
Own you own home. Save your own life. And be free to be all you want to be, on your own terms. Just make it off the public streets, bushes, parks, and creeks. What is not to like about this?
There is no way we can build shelter for $100 a head. And there it is in Detroit, waiting to get torn down. Crazy.

H-B Jackson who has made her political career making excuses for everyone and creating even more helpless victims dependent upon government intervention; and who has not found an issue she does not want to over-regulate and underperform, strikes ineffectual gold again.
However with the stroke of a pen, she gets to scrub up her ersatz pro-education and pro-women creds on her resume. That counts for something.
Nothing like crafting legislation with her name on it that can be turned into a lodestone to defy any opposition as "anti-women" and anti-education". What a waste of time, money and additional hassles while doing nothing other than push more paper.
She must be getting ready to run again. Is she also sniffing around Lois Capps seat, like a hound dog on red meat.

You got this exactly right: make Detroit's $100 homes available to those referred "homeless" and living on tax payer-supported public assistance.
This is an immediately viable alternative to living in bushes and door ways anywhere else. It is a splendid opportunity to put roofs over the heads of a lot of people. This opportunity may not come along again.
Living on the streets, in bushes, riverbanks, cars, RVs, parks and doorways is not viable. Period.

The laws you talk about go into force only after the crime. Their value as deterrence is obviously insufficient. Hence the use of a gang injunction, which is both proven and validated by the courts to be a viable crime prevention tool in contrast to the current batch of after-the-fact punishment tools.

Tabatha, you missed the point of the Detroit option. These houses are sold for $100 plus dollars. These people are already getting $40,000 in goods, services and cash from the federal social safety net.
They easily spend $100 on just pot and booze in just one week. Instead they can use that discretionary cash to actually buy a home in Detroit. If they buy enough of them together, they will have their own community where they can shelter their lives together while continuing to get their welfare checks AND get out of the bushes.
This is a given and I hope you can wrap your head about it: you can't tear down perfectly good houses in Detroit and have people living in bushes and doorways in California. Same way you can't have millions of illegal immigrants coming across the borders and have high US citizen unemployment at the same time. Likewise you can't take credit for the economic recovery and demand greater unemployment benefits at the same time.
Disconnect, tabatha, disconnect. Spend a little time meditating why you are so heavily invested in perpetual victimology and please share your findings with us. Make 2014 the year of no excuses and then let's talk about it in 2015.

I watched how the gang injunction protestors did their math. No sale, sorry, This is a dead issue. You also need to set off any costs you claim against what the status quo costs us as well, and that means putting a price on the tangibles and the intangibles. Easily $500K in LE and court costs even before you put these jerks behind bars at $46,000 a year each.
The life a gang injunction saves will be the gang members themselves. No price is too high to get rid of this scum once and for all. Time to send a new message other than making enabling excuses and lose one more generation to this hormonally charged, low impulse control stupidity.

If six people came in separately they would get single checks and probably take up a lot more table space than six people sitting at the same table. Complaining about splitting checks is lame. Just do it and smile because you are in the hospitality industry; not the hostility free-fire zone.

No one is spending millions on the gang injunction. That claim was long ago debunked.
We are however spending millions after the fact putting the bangers in jail and mopping up the messes they leave behind. Any money or staff time spent on the gang injunction so far has been well invested for everyone's benefit, including the people on the list. Just call off the "community organizing" protestors and the whole exercise will be a lot cheaper.
Don't come crying here about the expenses.
