Should the city pass an ordinance against sleeping downtown and camping in city parks?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 18, 2005
“No. It would at least have to accompany a solution to the problem. It’s as if they are trying to hide them instead of help them.”
“No. I think that’s discrimination against the homeless population and getting them out of the downtown area. I think that it’s really the downtown business owners that have a problem with the homeless.”
“No. I don’t think so, because everybody needs a place to stay and relax. We should make shelters more accessible to the homeless.”
“Only if the city provides free alternative areas for the homeless to sleep.”
