THE CRIMINALIZATION OF THE POOR
The UN Human Rights Committee has harshly condemned the U.S. for its treatment of the homeless, calling it “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” that violates international human rights treaty obligations.”
Here in the “Land of the Free”, the homeless are routinely fined for sleeping, sitting, or standing too long in one spot, or for covering themselves with blankets. They can be arrested just for being homeless, and in some instances, have been killed.
In addition, many cities now have ordinances making it illegal to feed or give money to the homeless. Yes, not only being poor, but also helping the poor is now a crime in the richest country in the world.
