The police respond to homeless assaults or other cases of broken laws. The "they aren't a police problem to solve" is in response to thinking the police should get them into shelters. They aren't in the business of providing social services.

How can a group that includes some who assault women, old people and anybody they think they are stronger than not be a police problem? Being homeless isn't legal entitlement for violent behavior.

Same McDonalds where a homeless guy punched and killed an elderly gebtleman who was fetching fries for his wife of 60 years.

I notice several homeless people congregating every morning in front of the Economy Lodge on State at DeLa Vina. Sometimes there is no passing space on the sidewalk for pedestrians. Where are they sleeping? Are they still in the bushes at MacKenzie Park? Would be great if the police could get them into some kind of shelter. If everyone knows they are sleeping behind the homes that border MacKenzie Park on Samarkand Road, why isn't something being done? It's not a safe situation for anyone, to include the homeless.

That reminds me of one of the guys who used to run the shelter he always blamed the problems in the neighborhood on us even though there was over 600 calls for service at the shelter each month. Before the shelter opened in our neighborhood it was the kid of place you could sit on your porch have a beer and not worry about a cop pulling up to ask if you live there. In face back then you were not bothered walking down the street with a beer..Not that I drink anymore but I did then...This was at McDonalds 1213 State street...So I guess the Homeless problem is left for the taxpayers to solve huh? Everyone shovels the problems down to the taxpayers who pay their wages funny.

I think the chief meant the mere act of being homeless was not a police problem. But, when they become violent and break the law, it is most definitely a police problem.

The police chief has stated several times that she believes the homeless and vagrants aren't a police problem to solve but are a social problem for the rest of the city to solve. So I doubt that the police will be getting them into any shelter any time soon.
