I thought it was just something you see in the movies or on the internet. I know Cali, Oregon, New Jersey and NY have the problem but never seen it here in Va. Now with Northam and the state turning blue there is a serious uptick. Any suggestions on how to address this? Here’s another sleeping on sidewalk of our side building. Any suggestions how to address this as we know with the new “blue” administration likelihood it will get worse.

They asked did we want him arrested? I said no. They said all we can do is ask him to leave. He left but comes back after they leave. Thought I’d ask those who are more accustomed to this for suggestions.

Hate to say it but if he gets arrested he gets 3 meals and a cot

You could just ask him what's wrong? It might be a very interesting conversation in seeing why he's there and how you might help him out. You, being a Christian could see if assistance could help. Not just $.

Tried that. They come back wanting more, with more homeless friends and won't even accept a job at my shop. I'll give my shirt off my back for a half way decent person but a bum gets what he deserves.

Back your vans up there running and lock the doors and leave them running. He'll get uncomfortable quick and leave, If you don't have sprinkers that is.

Got no idea who libs are and how much retarded they are... Also would you mind typing Jesus' name with capital letter and separating it from your profanity.
Are you saying Trump, as a president, has no power or authority over some governors? However that's not the point.
He is quick to take all the credit for anything good but refuses to take responsibility for anything bad and blame others. More damagingly he instilled that loser mentality in people like you

Remember couple of days ago he gathered a press conference, talked about Dow hitting 30000 for about a minute and walked off?

Not sure if Biden will be a better president but Trump broke a few things that cannot be fixed

It was seprated from my profanity by the words " libs" and "are" read it again if you need to...so take your judgmental holier-than-thou shit out on someone else Nancy and sorry to tell you f u c k s t i c k loser is not part of my genetic code.

Ya man plenty here. Your best bet is a high pitched sound emitter.

The 7 11s have them here in the really bummy areas.

I wouldn't unleash it on one tired drugged out dude but if you start having problems with groups of them just casually loitering and leaning up against your business then you gotta do what u gotta do
