How do we solve the Bum problem in Baton Rouge?
Driving around town it’s disgusting. Bums under every overpass and beggars at every major intersection. O’Neal at 1-12 literally has a small encampment of tents. Are there any local ordinances that can be enforced to help address this? Apologies if this should be on another forum.

Give them Covid infected blankets.

Local cops are either unwilling or unable to do anything about it.

The politician's solution was effectively to put up "Don't feed the animals" signs at every I-10 exit rather than do anything about breaking up these camps of homeless who are doing organized panhandling.

Let them become “artists” and hook them up with some foreigners who are interested in their “art”.

1-12 at O'Neal is horrible!

It looks like a dumpster was spilled under the intersection.

You don't really solve it... you shift them somewhere else with either policies or incentives or both...

They are just lacking jobs and affordable housing.

Send them to Austin, with a note that says "Welcome To The SEC!".

Stop feeding strays and they eventually move on.

Old man once described the difference in bum, hobo and tramp to me.
A hobo will travel and work
A tramp won’t travel, but will work
A bum won’t travel and won’t work

I drive past several of the big intersections regularly. Blows my mind that the mayor, police, or city council do nothing. This shouldn’t be a divisive political issue. Who the hell wants to put up with this stuff or thinks it casts a positive light on the city?

Hobocaust is the only solution.

Sam Kinison proposed a similar solution in the late 80s / early 90s.

The skit involved him getting a homeless guy and interviewing him about what skills he had, what prospects he had, if he had any family, etc.

If he had none of the above, he got executed and then the rest of the homeless started readjusting their expectations for a job.
