Austin has its hearts and sidewalks to the homeless. Following the example of San Francisco the city council passed an ordinance allowing homeless to sleep in virtually any place except the mayor’s home. Finally the Governor stepped in and cleaned the place up. The city has fought back by warning the homeless of impending sweeps. What standard should we use to commit these individuals to mental health facility? The current standard of imminent harm to themselves or to others is not working. It’s time to protect society and individuals from this societal degredation. Forcible medication needs to be looked at and perhaps implemented.
