Athens police say they have videotaped Barrow County law enforcement officers dropping off homeless people in Athens, though Barrow is not the only county doing it.

Murray Kogod, chief deputy for the Barrow County Sheriff's Department, said that if there's such a video, "it's based on the fact that somebody asked for a ride. It's not our practice to dump or drop off anyone anywhere."

As I said there are ifs in my statements. I propose a solution IF the problem is real. I also said that the shelter is not doing well IF there is in fact a problem. But yes we will agree to disagree on our points of view.

Reality guys...No one wants to spend the money to fix the homeless situation. Most of these people have severe mental/drug dependency issues and no one wants to foot the bill to give these folks therapy and the medication they need to become stabilized members of society that can contribute to the greater good. Most of them have been abused and never taught normal life skills and no one wants to spend the money here either to teach them on either a city, state or country level. Face it, we do not value rehabilitation of the individual. We only value corporations and the almighty dollar. Give it one cares. Do you really think anyone would blink an eye if they just all disappeared. NO ONE CARES, it would not even be a memory that we would share with our kids! In so many ways we have lost what once made this country great and it is probably too late to get it back. We are quickly becoming what we hated the most when we were first formed but no one wants to admit it and no one knows what to do to change it. At this point looking in the mirror is too scary and we are all covering up the mirror with a huge dark cloth.
