Well i have not sean him latley i usually give him chage when im around. Sometimes i even drink a cold one wih him. I feel bad for the homeless it can happen to anyone. This town needs to steep up and put more pressure on the salvation army and the heaven at rest. They csn do alot more as a community like provide rides for homeless men to work at the indurstial parkd etc.... well i hope shadow is safe!

The city needs to put pressure on the Salvation Army and Haven of Rest? Are you completely retarded???? These men aren't working because that's what they choose. And IF they did wanna work, there are no jobs for able bodied men in the industrial parks. You wanna help? Give one of them a ride to a job. Just 1. Drinking a beer with them isn't helping anyone.

Instead of making ludicrous claims of what others should be doing to help them all...do something yourself. Help 1. Just 1. You can't save them all. But you can save one. Pick 1. Don't care which one. Just 1. Make a difference and be proud of your assistance.

Good luck!

Hey crazy rich person. Its called getting laid off if it wernt for my parrents id probably be slerping outside too. I work since i was 18 an for u to say people are bums because they choose ur just evil.
Dont get me wrong some of them choose that life style. I draw uneployment right now soon i will be back in work but its hard. 25 million americans are laid off due to the bad global ecnomy u tell me that they choose to be laid off ur wrong. And if they want a beer after a stressfull day of looking for a job thats them. Quater of the usa is on food stamps or more. Sounds to me like u never been outside of bristol? Some of them bums are vetrens who faught wars gor ur freedom and u choose to say f##k them bums.. wow

what would you do if you lost your job? If you have been laid off to long some employers will not hire you because you have been out of the work force to long.
Just think about that
But i agree with you to some certian but your wrong also. At the heaven at rest, when they first check in....they only get 4 days to find a job. I dont know to many people who can find a job i just 4 days unless they just happen to be at the right place and time. The average person who is willing to take any job like min wage generally takes from 5 days to 3-4 weeks. Now some employers require 1-3 interviews etc. So it can take weeks just to get hired at wal-mart.
So i can agree them shelters can do a little better!
Is drinking the answer? No its not....but i can see why some of them do. Thy shall not judge one another instead help one another

In sweeden if your a citizen and homeless the goverment will provide you with tempepory job untill you get on your feet. Public service example cleaning up parks etc. If only the county government would take charge you would see less homeless . Facts by the world health origanszation an the united nations. The city takes in 16 million a year just in the resturant and hospitality indursity in taxes alone. So yes the city should take some part in ones who want help.
After all homeless have rights just like us all. When one buys beer,liquor, or wine is paying local,state and federal taxes from his/her purches. Besides your spending more tax dallors for arresting them every other day. Dah moran their drunk because they sleep under a bridge.

Yes the city needs to do something. They're always in the public libary. Which is fine but i dont like smelling some of them. Don't get me wrong some do job search ged education, but they should have a i want to say community center for the less fortunate.
The heaven at rest recives millions a year in donations from big churches thru the entire region. They should put a computer litetcy job search program up on that heaven at rest hill, so my family doesn't have to see them or smell in the libary.
All that money and donations they get and they make them walk the streets so our children can see the mess of bull. They should only be required to leave for 2-4 hrs a day for a job search. They put them on the streets from 8am to5pm that means at some pont some of them may get into trouble .....drinking,robery you get my drift?
Just a little help from the local government can make a big diference.
Or you can choose to ignore and stay in denial meanwhile the rich get richer there is more homeless in bristol that i have ever sean. Do nothing and when you get mug rob shot or homless yourself you just may reconsider

This is EXACTLY what "free trade" has done for working-class Americans who work with their hands for a living. These people cannot do anything else because they simply have no aptitude for higher education. Since neither candidate has a clear plan to bring back our jobs from third-world countries, I would suggest bringing a pack of clothes pins, as it is going to continue to get quite stinky! They like aluminum cans, too!

Funny how illegals travel 2000 miles from Mexico to get jobs we "don't have here". Many many many people won't work because its easier to mooch, bum, ect. Sure anyone can become homeless. It takes a real broken loser to concede to living their life that way for years on end. Its a choice...nit a situation.

It could happen to anyone....but not everyone would settle to stay that way. The people who leech society for years and years deserve what they have. If they want more they can do more for themselves.

Well, many of those illegal "immigrants," also known as illegal aliens, are here because they are criminals in dangerous street gangs, and they stay here in order to peddle drugs to our youth! Do you honestly think they are here just picking apples for a better life? They don't pay any taxes, and are a big drain on our publicly funded services. They could give a fat rat's behind about the USA and our cultures! Shame on our lousy politicians for telling us lie after lie about this illegal alien matter!
