    Does anyone realize that the Sarasota Police department has shut down the Crimes Against Children unit, because they are underfunded? And then the city is going to pledge $500,000. to the homeless? You're kidding, right?

    Spend $500,000 or $5,000,000, the folks that hang in the streets will hang in the streets. The folks that want a better life will find a better life for themselves one way or the other. Has anyone hung around some of these people long enough to figure this out? They want drugs, cigarettes, booze and attention-but mostly attention.
