I think the issue is not just being homeless.

It's the mess, the smell, some people feel unsafe with the louder “eccentric” individuals, etc.

We have homeless people that have moved into our neighborhood park. At first, I didn't mind as the folks who were sleeping there policed themselves and kept things clean. But then a few new people started staying there and they were the more “crazy kind” and that's when the first few folks left and things got bad. Now they're leaving their trash all around where they sit all day, and they're urinating and defecating on the concrete even though there are bathrooms.

People in the area are starting to call the cops and quite frankly I’d be all for the store next to the park blasting music if it made the park safe for our kids again.
