This criminalizes homeless people specifically and is another example of how homeless people are treated as second class citizens regardless of race/religion/country of origin.  Homeless people are being treated as the problem rather than as a symptom of what is wrong in society.

The victim of inequality, benefit changes and social standing is again being made the perpetrator.  This is analogous to a victim of child abuse being blamed for the abusers actions.
