Not a Safety Issue, but an Issue of Targeting the Homeless

Cities claim that they want vendors off the roads for safety.
Homeless advocates know what they really want.
“It strictly targets the homeless. It targets people who depend on getting $3 or $4 for a sandwich,” said Sean Cononie of The Homeless Voice.
“From what I’ve seen statistically, it’s not a problem. Looking at it from the potential of a high-injury accident, it’s not a potential high-injury accident,” Moss said.
“This is not safety for the homeless — this is safety for the people who don’t want to see them on the streets,” said Father Bob Caudill of All Saints Soup Kitchen.
“The city isn’t really looking for solutions or caring for all the citizens, just the citizens that have money,” Caudill said.
