    We need to figure out how to best help the transients in this city, the current measures are not working, and seem to be attracting transients to our town...the park between the Methodist church and Salvation Army is not safe anymore. We need to work together to figure out a solution to make our town safer.

    If they are homeless, what address do they put down to register as the sex offender?

    I just love that phrase "report of an unwanted subject". I am going to use that terminology more.
