I am incredibly concerned with the increased attacks and reports against homeless individuals by "reporters" on See Click Fix. This post represents just one of many made in the past week. And, now "reporters" are using threats to make their point. I worry that a wonderful, helpful tool like See Click Fix is being used for individuals to anonymously post their fears about homeless individuals without talking about the real and hard issues surrounding homelessness.
I urge See Click Fix to not respond to threats like the one above.
Curiously...who said this vehicle is unable to be moved? If that was the case I'm sure ParkLink would have handed out a hefty number of tickets and given the vehicle the yellow boot. The original report was "woman illegally living in her van" - as if that really affects any one posting on See Click Fix.
wmmcewen: The threat of vigilante justice usually involves some degree of violence. I'd call that a threat.
You're making a common mistake. A law doesn't have to say that "sleeping in your car" is illegal for it to be illegal.
MS has numerous criminal offenses listed where the results of sleeping in your car can be illegal, thus making sleeping in your car illegal by inference:
Disorderly conduct, disturbance in a public place, disturbing the peace, obstructing public streets, tramps, vagrants.
Check out the MS Code - Title 97 Crimes - Chapter 35 Crimes Against Public Peace and Safety at the following link:
They're all listed.
Plus, there are likely local ordinances as well that cover it.
This has been reported plenty of times, the city is aware and the threat is very inappropriate. This is not a clear cut legal issue like some imply (the suggested lawlessness is very minor, but from prior RPD comments she does not violate the law and sometimes helps the police).
If any citizen tries addressing this on their own they are a criminal, not a vigilante.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
