There’s a homeless guy who’s fairly regular in my neighborhood. He obviously has serious mental issues and probably substance abuse problems. He won’t take help and won’t go to shelters.
In a thousand years, there will be solutions and things we can do. But for now, other than basic politeness, there’s not much. If there is, I don’t know it.
He does some things, nudity and harassment, so on and so forth, that are possibly disconnected from malice. I don’t think the guy knows what he’s doing. But do you want someone exposing himself even if he’s not doing it out of malice? What do you do?
This is why people talk about thoughts and prayers.
