One of the oldest, most common discussions is whether or not we should take photos of homeless people. Personally speaking, I no longer take images of homeless people. I see no purpose to it.
Dead half-naked homeless man lay on street for entire day - as passersby took photos of him
Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot dead by police after he attacked another homeless man, ripping flesh from his face with his teeth while high on drugs. Rudy Eugene, 31, was believed to have been high on a new potent form of LSD when he savagely attacked another homeless man, ripping pieces of his skin off with his teeth. The victim, who was also naked, is fighting for life in intensive care suffering from severe facial injuries as his attacker bit his eyes and chewed off his nose. Police had initially responded to reports of two naked men fighting on the city's MacArthur Causeway bikepath. At the time of the attack on Saturday afternoon the area was packed with people going to the city's annual Memorial Day hip-hop festival. The fight happened at an exit close to the Miami Herald newspaper offices, and some of the incident was caught on their CCTV cameras. A surveillance video camera showed images of the men's naked legs lying side by side after the shooting. Witness Larry Vega said he was riding his bike off the MacArthur Causeway, which connects the centre of the city with the beach, when he saw the horrific attack. Mr Vega flagged down a Miami police officer, who he said repeatedly ordered the attacker to get off the victim.
Maybe you grab an apple danish or kugelhopf with coffee at nearby Bakery Nouveau and enjoy a morning chat with a friend. But instead of using our precious green space, Williams Place Park in Capitol Hill has been overrun by homeless, the site completely trashed, all thanks to the lack of attention by Councilwoman Kshama Sawant. The benches are almost always occupied by a passed out homeless person. Sometimes the homeless loiter; other times, they get undressed. Sometimes they argue with each other, and sometimes they just lounge around doing nothing. Green Seattle, spending a ton on parks, only to give them away to almost naked homeless people instead of putting them in shelter.
Homelessness is defined as living in housing that is below the minimum standard or lacks secure tenure. People can be categorized as homeless if they are: living on the streets primary homelessness ; moving between temporary shelters, including houses of friends, family and emergency accommodation secondary homelessness ; living in private boarding houses without a private bathroom or security of tenure tertiary homelessness. Homelessness and poverty are interrelated. In , an estimated million 1 in 65 at the time people worldwide were homeless and as many as 1 billion people live as squatters, refugees or in temporary shelter, all lacking adequate housing. When compared to the general population, people who are homeless experience higher rates of adverse physical and mental health outcomes. Chronic disease severity, respiratory conditions, rates of mental health illnesses and substance use are all often greater in homeless populations than the general population. These disparities often result in increased morbidity and mortality in the homeless population. There are a number of organizations who provide help for the homeless. These services often provide food, shelter beds and clothing and may be organized and run by community organizations often with the help of volunteers or by government departments or agencies.
