How sad is that! FYI, a body found behind the Mobil station last week, in canyon country, was another homeless man that couldn’t get any help from this city. Not even mentioned that I’ve seen. Very sad that we don’t offer more help for the homeless.???
It is unfortunate that many homeless choose this lifestyle and make the general population feel sorry for “not giving them any help”. I worked across the street from a tent city with about one hundred homeless persons illegally occupying the sidewalk. Many were offered help and rides to the shelter but refused so they can continue to live their “free” lifestyle. It is also unfortunate these crimes are being committed in this city. However we must realize that the problem derives from the low income housing exploding in the Sierra Hwy/Via Princessa and Jakes Way area. Not the “lack of help” for the homeless.
