    8 years ago Comments: I am a registered voter, and resident of Orlando, And coming from Detroit originally, (way more homeless "enough said") I think these new "laws" against homeless people are ridiculus, you need to work on the problems causing homelessness, not try to make the homeless disapear, whats that really do anyway. Make it APPEAR that the city is doing its job to maintain quality life for all of its residents.. good luck with that, the homeless and the people standing by them don't seem to be running to hide like you want them to. Maybe you should do your jobs and fix the problem.
