    "Homeless living in a tent city in Redding are about to be evicted. Authorities say 20 to 30 people live in the camp behind Eastside Road and Technology Way.

    To many of them, the network of tents is their neighborhood and the people their family.

    “People live in houses and all that, that’s home to them. We live in tents and these are our homes to us. And we cook dinners together, go shopping together,” says Ronda Valdez, fighting back tears.

    Last week she lost a loved one. Clarence Edger Thompson, 43, who was stabbed to death in the area, lived in a neighboring camp.

    Valdez just found out she about to lose the rest of her community because police are planning to close the camp.

    “It’s sad, what are they going to kick us out to find another spot?” says a worried Valdez."

    I think the police need to leave those people alone.

    And if the homeless in the military don't want to join, or openly disobey? What then? It's a fool's plan, you can't force them to be good soldiers.

    Also, Jall, do you think vagrancy, panhandling, and the like should be made crimes instead of just misdemeanors or infractions? Because unless we criminalize those acts all you're proposing is to slap more useless fines on the homeless.

    I think we're capable of ripping a big chunk out of the problem, but it'll never truly go away.

    yep....See what happens when you assume things about people?

    I'd much rather my tax dollar spending go to help those afflicted with mental illness, and in hopes of understanding the brain better, than to a 2nd generation welfare queen living in Sec 8 housing with 4 kids from 4 different fathers who don't pay a dime.

    This is true, but sad.

    Every stinking square inch of the US is owned and fenced by someone. People have to be somewhere, yet there's nowhere to go.

    Which of course made me think "Well, now we know how the Indians felt". So of course then I thought HEY! WE need reservations!

    Re: Homeless to be Evicted from Redding California Tent City

    Redding is one of the hottest places in California in the summer, as temps climb into the 110-115 range most every summer. Evicting the homeless from a camp set up in a shady spot will just drive them to seek cool temps elsewhere, and so instead of one camp where their population is concentrated, they will be scattered.

    I'm not sure what they are trying to achieve here, since all they are doing is making it more likely the average citizen will be affected rather than less. The article didn't say whether they are on public or private property, but if they are on public property, evicting them will only increase the likelihood they will infringe upon private.
