Videos Show NYC Tearing Down Homeless People’s Tents With Garbage Trucks

Bloomberg had an out-of-sight-out-of-mind policy when it came to homeless people living on the streets and subways. Which was wrong.

De Blasio had a policy that seemed to want people to confront the problem (which is good), but did nothing to actually address the root causes – economics, housing, mental health, safety (for all). Which was also wrong.

I had hoped that Adams would find a middle path, and maybe he will yet. People shouldn’t be living on the street, but erasing people who have no homes, absent an actual policy for giving them homes (not shelters) just puts us at Bloomberg 4.0. Which is still wrong.
