Does Councilman Todd Klein’s Proposal Make the Homeless More or Less Vulnerable?

The controversy about Good Samaritans feeding the homeless without permission from city hall has prompted councilman Todd Klein to propose a change in city regulations.  If his proposal is approved by the council, Good Samaritans could feed the homeless without having to worry about city hall.  But in his commentary on KFYO, Councilman Paul Beane talked about unintended consequences.

“What this proposed ordinance does is strip away the few remaining provisions in the law that protects the homeless from those who might want to harm them with doctored food,” Beane said.

Beane said the change would make the homeless more vulnerable, not less.
