I dunno.

Steps away from the scenes of the gruesome killings, police officers spotted a 24-year-old man, also believed to be homeless, who fit the descriptions given by the survivor and other witnesses. He was holding a metal bar dripping with blood. He was taken into custody without incident, the police said.

We need to do something for mental health in this city! I hope the next mayor makes this a priority. How awful and unnecessary! May the diseased be in a better and happier place now.

No homeless person is going to take the free money and get back on their feet. It would quickly get spent on booze and drugs. In fact, giving out free money would encourage more people to not "get back on their feet" and join their ranks. If these were responsible people, they would not be homeless in the first place.

Your argument was also used to justify the welfare, public housing systems. "It is to help the poor and help them get back on their feet." It's been over 50 years of that experiment and look how well that turned out.

I truly feel bad for every law abiding American who cannot enjoy their 2nd Amendment rights in this unconstitutional city.

Surprised race hasn't been mentioned yet. Usually crimes like this revolve around the race of the prep. Media and politicians swallow it up accordingly to push their agendas.

I think the fact perp and victims are all homeless makes the race thing less of an issue. Homelessness is an equalizer. Also if you read the article, the perp has a Latino name, so itís most likely heís not white or black.

Homeless is the ultimate manifestation of multiple deep-rooted societal problems, with the lack of economic opportunities being the predominant one. And continuous accumulation of wealth in a few pockets is depleting more economic opportunities for unprivileged people like you. It takes time/process for a normal healthy functioning individual to evolve into the homeless stage in life, which for most unfortunately is an irreversible situation because of the chronic and permanent mental/psych damage that accumulates over the course. The growing and widening wealth gap between a small percentage of filthy riches and the rest in the country is worsening this situation and calls for immediate attention and efforts to address it to prevent the problem from growing out of control.

You can complain that the welfare/housing system has not helped propel moving forward much with their life. But have you thought about how the homeless and associated chaos would be like here without the welfare/housing for those less capable? It is puzzling for me seeing that people like you who are likely way outside the range of that small % greedies and likely to be taken advantage by them as the rest would stand out to defend your predators while beating down on your fellow victims in the same camp as you are in. I tired to make it clear that it is the small % of greedies above you who are stepping on your head and trying to push you down the tube, not those victims below you. Why is this so difficult to get this cross...
