More cities restricting homeless

This article reports an increase over the last 3 years of cities enacting laws that place restrictions on homeless people. Laws restricting camping, panhandling, sleeping in vehicles, and sharing food have all become more common, according to a study of 187 urban jurisdictions. City officials say they need tools to manage a difficult situation, while advocates criticize reliance on prohibitions and enforcement that “will only fail the city and fail constituents.”
