Not suggesting that they provide therapeutic services, just that they treat the homeless, poor, and mentally ill with dignity and respect.

Cry me a river about the Park Board’s “long suffering”. Until we decide as a community to address the issue of homelessness we’re just all goi…

Race can be a disenfranchisement in and of itself and can make it easier for the police to possibly infringe upon your rights. Wayne, you or I would have NEVER allowed the police to treat us this way. That’s the issue.
