Homeless people are being ticketed $10 after 9pm if they are found sitting on benches, in front of abandoned buildings or any place else for that matter. It is considered loitering, these people are homeless, and have no other means of shelter.

      At any given time today in America, there are about half a million people who are "homeless" -- they don't have a “permanent, safe, decent, affordable place to live.” Around the world there are about 100 million homeless people, and many of them are women and children.
