The homeless dont feel that shunned - they're still there and long ago showed they have no pride. Imagine spending 15 years as a homeless person and thinking that somehow people are wrong and unfeeling when they want you to move out of their neighborhood.
I also dont understand how anyone could feel even one twinge of guilt over these veteran homeless people. The panhandling and feigned dependency become a way of life for many people. Stop giving them food and money and watch how fast they either leave the area or get themselves locked up.

Those that provide support to these addicts are part of the problem.

Word is the homeless are taking a crap in store fronts and people's driveways. Many are receiving checks from the system and don't care to waste them on food and shelter that can be obtained free. It's a lifestyle of working the system. On one level I respect the creativity and freedom, but I don't wish to trade places. I'd have to use my energies productively. A person should not take more out of the world than they put in.

PS. They always seem to have cigarettes.
