    First: who deserves a drink more than someone who sleeps under a bridge.
    Second: Cut off their money supply and watch where the burglary rate goes.
    Third: It doesn't matter what the spend the money on. You never know if you're giving the 7% that goes to food, clothing, or housing.
    People need to stop hating the homeless. These are human beings who deserve to be treated with dignity regardless of how undignified they are. Addiction in a disease and a mental disorder. Would you pass by a cancer patient dying on the street?
