Oddly enough, the US is being criticized for inhumane and cruel treatment…of the homeless. Recently, the UN voiced disapproval in the way the US treats homeless people. Many US cities have enacted legislation that criminalizes homeless people and makes it harder for them to meet basic needs such as having access to a bathroom. These legislation also make it illegal to sleep or store belongings in public areas, panhandle, etc. Criminalizing the homeless will not solve our problem of homelessness!
