Where are they now? look around.
The homeless aren't as bad as the nut-cases from the care homes that are kicked out at seven A.M. to wander the town all day, panhandling for money, repeatedly walking out into traffic, throwing trash all over and generally making pests of themselves. Most of the truly homeless hide in the bushes and wait for the food to be brought to them. Then there's the shelter homeless. Mostly Micros, they and their ten kids will completely take up any counter in any store and raise all sorts of hell so no-one else can be waited on, and when they cross the street they do it like ducklings and hold up as much traffic as possible.

we should institute labor camps where the government provides for all your NEEDS, not wants. food clothes, soap, shelter,etc. and in turn the homeless work an 8 hour day doing jobs that help beatify hawaii. They could cut grass, cook for themselves, fight graffitti, the sky is the limit.
Now you're talking. Put the slumlords to work with forced hard labor, let the homeless have the jobs as the sidewalk supervisors.

I'm still waiting to hear a TRUE slumlord story from Oahu. One where the landlord is prosecuted and found guilty. Not the trash talk from deadbeat evictees.

Now why would you want to hear a story like that about yourself? As if you don't all back each other up. Just like boss Hog and the Dukes of Hazard. CORRUPTION runs wild, as poor honest people shut up and get screwed.
Not this time, good to see the little critters fighting back, maybe they'll let you camp on the wWitehouse lawn when Obama tellS you to shut up too, and let's the homeless sleep in your house.

Not to be picky, but that's White house, but you see Joe Bully Man lives in the outhouse.
