    What happened to the days when the police would have handled this with a happy ending? How about taking this guy to the local mission? A hot shower, food, maybe some new clothes, something to eat and a safe place to sleep. Some of the local missions would even help this guy get back on his own with help and support. Instead they just put him in jail and the vicious circle continues. Come on …… What ever happened to officer friendly ? No wonder today's youth are afraid of the police, look at the example they set. This story could have had a different ending.

    The man is obviously HOMELESS. I agree …. led a helping hand. i can guarantee if you put any of those officers or even the judge in a situation where they had to survive on the street they would've sought a place to sleep like that as well. It's human nature and survival.

    Hey …. why should we take care of our own homeless people? We have all those illegal immigrants we feel responsible to take care of now.

    Talk about a messed up country! This country is too far gone … it'll never be the same or respected.
