Ocean Beach Divided Over Anti-Homeless Sticker Controversy

Wow, a lot of stereotypes and generalizations you stated about the entire homeless population. Personally, I help out the homeless because they are human beings, not animals. I am not "perpetrating" the homeless by feeding them as the caller Susan stated. These are human beings that need our help. Put yourself in their shoes and imagine if you were homeless and had to live on the street and dealt with scumbags like you all that generalized everyone even though you weren't an aggressive type. I have met a lot of nice people on the street that are not on drugs, just dealt a bad hand and are really trying hard to better their situation. This sticker is just covering up the problem of homelessness and it will honestly NEVER GO AWAY if things like this continue. We all need to stand together to help out. How do you think they will ever get out of their situation if they don't have a cell phone? They need to have a phone to make contact with their case managers, potential employers, and housing programs. A phone is a step on the right direction and they should not be scrutinized for that. OB is definitely not open-minded, welcoming, and peaceful anymore, and that is a sad shame.
