It's been extremely disheartening seeing so many camped put in doorways of vacant storefronts these past few years. It feels like the humanity is being ripped out from society bit by bit. Obviously, many are too mentally ill or physically addicted for proper reintegration. But the majority are just stuck in the poverty cycle.

However, there needs to be a huge change and we need to demand and cultivate a better society.

They aren't wrong. Several unhoused will refuse to be sheltered and there's a good chance some will die from exposure, drinking too much to fight the cold, or taking too much then they don't feel the cold.

People keep their oven on for heat, CO poisoning happens. Space heater causes a fire.

Lots of ways people can lose their life from this type of cold snap.
