This sort of thing will become more and more common as the number of people thrown out into the world grows and resources dry up.

Well done Democrats, your stupid welfare state mentality ate up all the resources that SHOULD have prevented this man from becoming homeless and desperate. But because we have generations living in public housing with no expectation that they leave and make room for others, there is no room for the people who have paid for and need public assistance temporarily. RIght here & right now, tax payers are being thrown out into the street because they don't have a spot grandfathered in by a lifetime of being loser.

Well, the state is running out of money so eventually there won't be housing for anybody. Nice job!

Is this the same guy you would see wandering around town with a big walking stick with feathers hanging off it?

I think the cops took his stick off him a few months back.

Robs a Bank, knowing he was gonna be put in the clink. The homeless are not stupid people. Now he won't have to sleep under the bridge anymore and he will have 3 squares (even if the food sux) a day. He should have taken that homeless lady that runs the streets of Northampton with him.
Hes always been nuts

Hey did you ever see him waving his stick and yelling at the churches on Newport Ave? I don't care how harmless they say he is, he scared the sheet out of me. What happened to state run institutions that use to be on every corner. At least everyone knew where they were.
