Homeless solution apparent

There are lots of complaints with criminals walking free after egregious second offenses, the train station and a debatable Crime Commission going on. There is a common thread running through this city and it concerns the high pay of upper-level management with Police Department, Fire Department, the school board, city and county personnel.

Meanwhile, they keep padding their pockets while everyone else suffers and think nothing of it. How about a reduction of those overinflated salaries? Then it filters down to the homeless issues and what to do. If we want something done in the current climate, we must unfortunately be cruel and do it ourselves.

Of course, we can vote and we certainly must, but we need an immediate fix to get started.

The “do-gooders” are a fine lot but the benevolence provided certain transient and questionable individuals has harmed us and moved far beyond just being kind and thoughtful. We the citizens of Fairfield collectively have the power to end homelessness and vagrancy in our town. They park and camp all over the city. Maybe police could patrol those areas and get them to move on? A byproduct of their exodus will be a reduction in crime.

If you’re among the serious and want to make a difference, stop giving. It will end very quickly. That means calling the police, ignoring panhandlers, no dropping off clothing and necessary articles for the shelters and no donations. If you must tithe at your place of worship, ask that it go to another cause. So go ahead, do it. Stop providing food and the means for shelter now, today. We will become the blueprint for America, freeing our tax-paying citizens from the burden of restricted resources that are going to freeloaders and criminals.

Is this PC? Absolutely not. Is it cruel? Yep. Is it our fault we must go to such extreme measures to get back what’s legally and rightfully ours? Yeah, it kinda is.

    Why should police and fire give up there deserved incomes for the homeless. Why don't you do it? Where will they "move on" to? Your house?

    How about using some of the resources that Obama is using for foreign nationals, coming here seeking free dual citizenship and American worker funded entitlements, for American citizen homeless?

    Chris, Welcome to the cold hatred republicans, but actually I think we should give them a parting gift, a one way bus ticket to San Francisco, Hey they will have food, medical and lots of people to pan handle from not to mention a city council that has sympathy for them, it’s a win win

    Let's take care of our own American citizen homeless first before using resources and encouraging foreigners to have kids and ship them off for Americans to support and raise with the promises of free dual citizenship and American funded entitlements. Let's take care of our own families as Jesus mentioned and not just use foreigners to keep Demo politicians to remain in power.

    "It will end very quickly." What does that mean? They go somewhere else? The die? What?
