    the permits, I don't know how you came to that conclusion.

    the solution to "homelessness" is to ensure that everybody who wants a home has one. lots of ways to get to that point.

    The solution to the problem of folks who prefer to sleep on the streets? I doubt issuing a few "permits" is going to help much, although if you read the story, there are those sleeping on the streets who seem to be happy about the idea they could get a permit.

    What will the local police do to those who don't have a "permit"? Just pretty much exactly whatever they do now, which isn't any kind of a solution. I can assure you it's pretty likely the cops know already which of those people sleeping on the streets do not cause problems, without having to see a permit.

      excuse me, police already have the job of dealing with homeless vagrants.
      Yes, I do think that you are excusing this behavior.

        "I can say absolutely that (25+ / 0-)
        giving police the task of dealing with homelessness is an absolute non starter."

        as I point out, police are dealing with the task of dealing with "homelessness" already.
