Re: “Legal Experts Remind Boise Homeless Coalition to Be Vigilant, Vocal

The taxpayers don't want to pay for the homeless, but what they don't realize is, THEY ALREADY ARE. It cost the U.S. taxpayer $50,000 to $150,000 a year per homeless person on the streets. How? Why? Law enforcement and medical cost. Look it up folks. Actual statistics. It's cheaper to put people in apartments. Take this example. John Doe homeless guy winds up in prison with a ten year sentence of one year fixed and 9 years indeterminate. He will stay the whole ten years because he had no back from the community when he was arrested, and he will stay that way in prison. Why did he go to prison in the first place? Durrrr!!! Because the impoverished have higher crime rates than middle class citizens. If the guy wasn't homeless, he probably wouldn't have wound up in prison to begin with. I would suggest that our political leaders get their priorities strait. Also, the public needs to be brought out of their blissful ignorance and hatred of what they don't understand.

Re: “Boise Expands Effort to Deny Panhandlers

I would to remind the public,when people can't get what they need by asking and can't find a job, a lot of them will STEAL! I would suggest if people would like to see less panhandling, try stopping the police and business harassment and discrimination of the poor and homeless! That way they don't need as much cash to stay out of trouble!
