Please do respect the homeless population. We never know when we may become homeless ourselves.

I have met a few that say they are from Bloomington and got free bus tickets to Evansville, one way tickets of course.

Part of the problem is that no surrounding counties have homeless shelters. Evansville serves a large section of southern Indiana.

So yes, we are kind of a "dumping ground" if that's what u want to call it.

I'm going to contact the local tv stations to do an expose on this subject.
It's time we sent these clowns back to the gutter towns where they came from...that's their city's responsibilty...not ours. What say you, good people of Evansville?

Did U know that in Toronto Ontario Canada, there are all sorts of programs to get the homeless on their feet.

Guess what, they still have a homeless problem.

I say just let them fend for themselves as social programs do nothing but perpetuate homelessness.

I got an idea, why don't we buy the evansville homeless a one way ticket to Toronto. We will let another country pick up the tab.

Hey, it works for Mexico.

Evansville is one of many cities that play the ship me your homeless game
It just gives the shelters more money from the government. What is sad is I know a person who works at a shelter and the shelter rips off the money and doesn't help these people .Some of them are just down on their luck but others just use shelters like hotels. Its a sad situation that becomes a cycle.. I think every person should work and take care of their own.

What do you mean, Ghandi, by good people of Evansville? Talking about the homeless like they are garbage is not good at all. God made ALL humans in HIS very own image, whether they have a home or not, or whether they are rich or poor. God did not create trash, but humans do create the trash of sin, hatred, negativity, gossip, slander, murder, greed, ad infinitum. Also, next time instead of using a name like Ghandi who was about love, non violence, making the world a better place to live in, why not use a name like David Duke, or Adolph Hitler, someone who lived their lives by hate.

this may not fit in every situation, but the bible says "reap what you sow". do you know what that means? by garbage, he may be referring directly to the lazy scum that wont work, would rather suck the bottom out of a bottle of wine/beer/liquor, would rather pay for meth than a place to stay. if people are making choices like that and living off of the tax money, then they most definitely are garbage. how do you like them apples?

The homeless are not trash. True there are some with drug or alchol problems who would rather spend $ on meth: crack: weed: beer than on thier own place. Some just give up on themselves; give up on trying to find and get a decent paying job. Some have mental problems and need to be in a group home or mental institution. Some are physically handicapped. There are many different reasons why ppl are homeless. I feel sorry for the judges on here who insult the homeless. Guess what? Whatever your attitude is ; then so shall you be.
