Supreme Court refuses to hear challenge to ruling that allows homeless to sleep on sidewalks

The Supreme Court has refused to hear of the permit to allow people without a home to sleep in public parking and on sidewalks. The case was from Boise, Idaho.

The Court’s decision to not hear the case, which was with or without any disagreement, was a score for the destitute activist. Also, it was a jolt for the city officials who contend that this hampers their motive to conduct homeless encampments on footpaths.

This situation of homelessness has become a singular problem in California. Cities like San Francisco Los Angeles (LA) are concerned about enormous tent campground on the sidewalks and city streets. They are also concerned about the safety and health parameters of the homeless.

Los Angeles witnessed a hike of 16% in the population of the homeless the previous year. As estimated, nearly 36,000 people are dwelling on the streets of LA.

The previous year “the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals” administered that suing homeless people for dozing on sidewalks or other public property will be an infraction of the “legislature’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.”

Except for LA, other cities are moping away the street dwellers to other cities that are more receptive to these people.
