I also agree with the sticker. People are too quick to take offense and judge. There is a difference in the younger generation in how we interpret the word "bum". A "bum" to us is not someone who is homeless due to falling on hard times. A "bum" is someone who chooses to be on the street and take advantage of those who are kind givers. These bums that are being referred to in the sticker are young, aggressive and scary, and appear to be capable of holding a job if they had motivation. If anything this sticker is a good thing since we have become complacent about the homeless populations in San Diego. The controversy drummed up by this sticker is bringing the homeless problem and lack of services available for them to the forefront.
