Re: Dropping dead on your doorstep

Here the guy is. He's a Vietnam Veteran. He's suffering from terminal cancer and he medicates himself with alcohol. A bad choice? Yes. But neither you nor I were in his situation. Anyway you look at it, he needed help from the community he was in. What does that community allocate its money for? Arresting him for sleeping or covering up with blankets. Do I hold the members of the city council accountable for his death right on their doorstep? You bet I do!
