Poverty Outlaws?

"America’s desire to prosecute homelessness, and even the act of begging, has led to policy measures implemented across the country that are aimed at attacking our most vulnerable citizens instead of helping them. This includes state restrictions on the use of public property, stern enforcement of permit requirements, and the outright banning of homeless encampments."

The National Coalition of the Homelessness published a report entitled, Share No More which revealed that there are thirty-one cities throughout the U.S that have restricted or eliminated the act of sharing food with those in need, along with cuts to social security, Medicare, and many other welfare services used by the underprivileged.
