My small city recently evicted about 30 homeless people from their shanty town on a railroad bed. "It needed to be done," said the mayor. It was a festering crime scene, said the police chief.
They had a point. It was a filthy, hazardous site. An article in the local paper cited the city officials' justifications. Their report contained some fact and much hearsay. Not a word or viewpoint from an evicted person was included anywhere.
