Should homeless individuals, that have refused available shelter or housing, be allowed to sleep or encamp on public property?
This question is too black and white and should be reworked. They shouldn’t be allowed to camp anywhere they please but safe and gently policed areas should be allocated. In reality, the existence of so many homeless people is a disturbing demonstration of how our system fails so many.
They should be offered sustainable tent living in a natural environment where they can hunt and forage for their own survival needs, each hobo should be given a spear and hammer, to defend themselves from other homeless people
I highly doubt homeless people would be refusing shelter or housing and opting for legal trouble in a public area for no reason. Any time this occurs would be more likely due to bad conditions or abuse within the housing option. We need improvement in support systems in place for the homeless.
It's up to the relevent government to make sure suitable accommodation is available. Where it is homeless people should take it. Where it is not the systems should be improved. Encampments are not suitable accommodation
