Campbell Housing/Homelessness Q3
There is no constitutional right to camp on a street. Police should remove people who do and take them to locations with toilet, shower, heating and cooling features, and soup kitchens. Liberal cities have been hesitant to take this action out of fear of not appearing compassionate. However, letting the homeless camp in front of a business or residence is unfair to all who have to pass that way, as well as customers of the businesses and those who live in the residences. Private sector and non-profits can help with drug counseling, providing information on how to obtain skills needed for jobs, sharing information about available jobs, and providing soup kitchens at the centers.
