"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
I mean sure he spent the last few pages dodging and dodging and dodging. But kill people? I hardly think that level of (I hope) sophistry is necessary to quell what is obviously so farcical.
Also by the way, everyone participating in this thread should do some research on the topic. Outside of the links in this thread. Why? Because as is in my experience the usual reaction at a message board? Such reactions quite often preclude many facts that are not useful in a "message board" setting. This topic has much to do with a "issue" that some in London would rather not have highlighted, and has less to do with "helping the homeless" than some DP posters would say.
In fact the "spikes" that are alluded to in the OP? And the picture of them in same? Not remotely the case. In fact the "spikes" the vandals poured cement over? Are in front of the windows of the store in question. How stupid of that store to expect that homeless people not use those "benches" formerly referred to in other architectural language as window seals to encamp upon?
I'd like to give a shout out to Captain Courtesy for confirming the common sense/tribal knowledge that re-opening the asylums, as was suggested by tacomancer, is an idiotic suggestion.
