Homeless man stabs homeowner 17 times when asked to move camp - Portland, Oregon

Not surprised by this recent news, unfortunately:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/05/29...hter-says.html

This comes about a year after another homeless junkie scumbag stabbed & killed two innocent people on a train in Portland.

I was in Portland several years ago on vacation, and these scum-bags were everywhere - screaming obscenities at strangers, camped out in the street, and in some cases were actually taking over entire street corners. Too bad, because Portland would be a nice place to visit/live - IF it weren't for the excessive amounts of these junkie scum. All of those dangerous homeless who threaten others should be ground underfoot like the fucking cockroaches they are.

I blame the weak, liberal city government for letting it get to this point. If they took a harder stance against this issue, it would never have gotten this bad. Fucking pathetic.

Clearly you are a very compassionate conservative! What would you do to solve the homeless problem?

What the article doesn't tell you is that the homeless man was once a woman, who the homeowner was once married to. It was a bad marriage, and this is the culmination of years of revenge planning.

Good job of victim blaming. You may as well be stating that this innocent victim brought the stabbing upon himself, when it was the homeless piece of shit who was the FUCKING AGGRESSOR.

As to your question, I don't have a solution.

City governments need to take a harder stance against these scumbags. You shouldn't have to deal with the possibility of being physically threatened by these pieces of human excrement when going about your daily business and/or around your own home.

I have yelled at & threatened aggressive homeless panhandlers that have gotten too much into my face. These low-life pieces of shit need to be schooled that not all non-homeless are victims.

Perhaps a less hysterical approach would be good.

I'm sure The Dude isn't lumping the kids who sleep in a car and still go to public school among the homeless human scum who deserve to be crushed underfoot.

It's a complex problem. But, if seething hatred and the desire to exterminate people floats your boat ...

(The crazy homeless who stab people are a different story, of course.)

I disagree with that, he's also classified our homeless vets as "pieces of garbage" that need to he stomped (and here I thought conservatives supported the military and veterans)

If churches paid taxes we could end the homeless problem all over the country. Or those churches could let the homeless sleep in them since that is the compassionate thing to do.

Re: Homeless man stabs homeowner 17 times when asked to move camp - Portland, Oregon

I guess I didn't make myself clear here. I don't have an issue with people who ask for money & take "No" for an answer, and/or those who hold up signs & are non-verbal, etc. I've dealt with people like this for years, and don't have a problem with them. To clarify, I've gone back & modified my posts.

However, in the past 5-10 years aggressive panhandling has gotten worse. I.e., I do have an issue with with those dangerous drug addicted/mentally ill junkies who you see on a regular basis who threaten and/or attack others. And, even if they haven't actually attacked anyone, the danger is there with many of these people - those are the pieces of shit who need to be removed from society. In addition to the link I posted in the OP, here are some other examples - and these are just the tip of the iceberg:

https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/ag...-say/691648102

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news...rticle1080087/

http://www.ketv.com/article/man-says...treet/12231375

https://www.universalhub.com/crime/2...ches-stabs-two

If you think aggressive, dangerous panhandlers don't exist, you are living under a fucking rock.

Let me give you an example of a city that, from what I've seen, has gotten the aggressive panhandling issue under control (for the most part): NYC. I was there on vacation several years ago & went everywhere. Yes, there were homeless people walking around with signs, but they were easily ignored. There were people verbally asking for money - but, once you said No they moved on - they did not threaten/attack you. Whatever NYC has done to curb this issue, it has worked.

Universal medicare so the severely mentally ill and those suffering from addiction issues can get treatment. Housing assistance and affordable housing. Work programs that create a path out of homelessness. Unfortunately, those are all considered "bleeding-heart liberal" ideas that all skate uncomfortably too close to socialism!!!!, so they're fought tooth and nail by people that would rather crush the homeless "underfoot like cockroaches".

This.

Last Saturday morning I went to the Family Dollar store in downtown Kansas City, KS (about two minutes from my house) to pick up a couple of things. As I was leaving, a man approached me from behind as I was opening my car door and really startled me, which caused me to react by yelling "NO!" He then proceeded to argue with me about my reaction, how he "didn't run up on me" and so I shouldn't have yelled at him. I finally stammered out that I don't carry cash (which is true for the most part, I use my card for everything and stop at an ATM if I know I'm going to need cash for something). Then I got in my car and drove off.

Now. I live, as I said, very near the urban core of my city. I live in a mixed neighborhood, about half Latina, surrounded on three sides by urban and mostly black ghettos and the fourth by the city's industrial district. I've lived here for going on twelve years, and before that I lived in a similarly mixed neighborhood near the campus of the University of Kansas Medical Center for nine years. All of which is to say, I'm not some delicate suburban lotus blossom who's completely unfamiliar with being around people who aren't white. But this incident made me feel bad not just for how I acted toward the guy and how he probably came away thinking I was some racist, but because what really bothered me wasn't his color but the fact that he came up behind me and startled me. I don't want white guys doing that either.

Squatting on people's land is wrong. TheDude responded with similar vitriol in the thread about Michael Rotondo (though I agreed with his general sentiment and he didn't propose the death penalty for being a mooch off your parents, which was refreshing). I agree that the problem exploded around the time that the Great Communicator and his cronies decided that mental health was a problem for the local community and cut off federal funding, resulting in a lot of people who need residential treatment because they aren't rational enough to hold gainful employment becoming homeless. I'll concede there are also plain Ted Bundy types who would be stabbing people no matter what their life situation was, but they are few and far between in comparison to mentally ill people who just need some fucking compassion and not suggestions that they be "stomped like cockroaches" just for existing.

IMO, those are the two biggest issues with the “crazy” homeless. The irony of this thread is that it is liberals who try to do something but these programs consistently get shutdown by conservative politicians.

You can’t have it both ways, TheDude. And stomping them underfoot like cockroaches isn’t a very reasonable plan...or in this political climate, maybe it is.

Re: Homeless man stabs homeowner 17 times when asked to move camp - Portland, Oregon

Sounds like we need better knife control laws and more of them. We should be outlawing any knife that can stab more times than a KFC spork. Those big “sportsman” hunting knives — ridiculous! They should be banned! Nobody is encountering a wild boar on the street and needing to take it down. All these Crocodile Dundee knife-nuts make me sick. What about the children?!

Homelessness and mental health issues aren’t the problem, knives are. These people choose to be homeless and mentally ill, but knives are only designed for one thing: stabbing. Give a kid even a blunt knife from their PlayDough set and the kid will be Norman Bates-ing it up in no time.

They don’t even put knives out at dinner parties in fancy restaurants anymore. People cannot resist the knife’s stabby allure. It’s not their fault, it’s the knife’s fault.

Someday we will have politicians who will have the guts to stand up to the Big Knife Industrial-Paramilitary Complex. In the meantime, we get things like electric carving knives in our homes and all round our children. I mean, really, an electric carving knife?! The turkey/ham is already dead! What do you need that electric knife for?!
