2 Bums On A Corner No Joke



The center of our city continues to be a beacon for homeless.  These photos taken today show two bums, one asleep behind building and another seated on curb. This is not what we want people to be greeted with upon entering the downtown area. 

The homeless shelter up the tracks  helps them , but is also a magnet for them to be in the center area of town. More must be done to both help them but also keep them from making us look bad to visitors

There used to be several homeless camps hidden from general view. The city broke them up and now they're scattered all over the place. Once again, bad decisions by city officials.

Well if landlords around town here wouldn't charge outlandish rent so many of us wouldn't be homeless! God Bless those people!!

I wont call them Bums, they could be Veterans or people from generational poverty. Looking at the current economy of the county, this is something you should expect. Everywhere you go isn't gonna be flowers and Roses. There is always gonna be a area where there a need for improvement and Salisbury IS one of them.

So, please tell us what "must be done to both help them but also keep them from making us look bad to visitors"?

It is not the job of landlords to provide affordable housing to.any class of people. They are businessmen and as such will charge what the market will bdars

Maybe the city should be hiring someone to work on this issue instead of trying to bring some folk festival to this town???????

Your worried about a couple homeless people making us look bad? Seriously no how about all the drugs in the area or all the crime that makes a city/town look bad not a few homeless people.What are they doing to you?Not a damn thing!Maybe if the rent wasnt so high and pay so low people can have a decent place to live!#homelessdontbothernoone

Many of these people CHOOSE to be homeless due to mental problems. They do not want to be confined by the rules and regulations of a shelter, at least any longer then it takes for weather to moderate. If you gave the nice clean clothes, they would only sell them for dope/booze. Fact of the matter is, there is not much that can be done about them.

They are not people down on their luck or Veteran's dealing with PTSD they are drug addicts and the mentally ill...They need to be picked up and taken where they can get the help they need, To allow them to live on the street is cruel.

Many don't want any parts of a shelter because they don't allow you in if you are drinking or are on drugs. Many even have a breathalyzer to test for alcohol.
The problem is the places that feeds them. People do this because it makes them feel good and all warm and fuzzy and they incorrectly believe they are paving their own stairway to Heaven. This is very far from the truth and to feed them is only enabling and a sin. The Bible clearly says you do not work you do not eat. What would Jesus do? Jesus was not an enabler. He gave people a chance and that was it. He famously said go and sin no more. If they didn't stop He was done with them. The problem is too many are not real Christians. They pick and choose what parts of the Bible to follow. Those feeding the homeless are not good Christian people. They are the sinners. God put the homeless here to see how people react and when you feed and clothe them indiscriminately God is not happy with you no matter how good it makes you feel.

One way bus tickets to Florida should work and not cost a lot, with winter coming, could be an appealing solution.

To those slamming those evil slumlords that charge amounts they deem high, you should buy some houses and rent them to these bums for real cheap, see how that works out for you.

So, if they charge $500 a month the homeless guys would have a place to stay?

YOU are the most pathetic of the most pathetic. You use RELIGION to avoid helping those in need.

I am absolutely certain you have never stepped inside of a homeless shelter in your life. YOU DO NOT HAVE A CLUE. NOT A CLUE!

I know you think you do, but NOT A CLUE!

MANY of the people my wife and I help need help due to no fault of their own. Not drugs! Not addictions! But way too often, to way too MANY... SHIT HAPPENS!

Some I have talked with, came to with little, looking for a job, then the transmission went out in their car, leaving them without a way to get to work each day.

A few I have spent time with, were living paycheck to paycheck, when Cancer took the only reason they live, their husband or wife... spending every last dime they had to save their loved ones, they end up on the street, because some of those GOOD CHRISTIANS told them, "Sorry about your problems, but JESUS SAID I should not help you overcome this tragic and temporary circumstance." so they find themselves without any resources whatsoever.

cont.... Then there way too many with similar stories as the woman and her son that my wife helped get through Christmas and beyond two years ago.

The previous year, her husband worked for Coke driving the delivery trucks that stock the shelves of convenience stores, grocery stores with Coke products. He worked his ass off, earned a good living.

He provided a nice home for his wife who was going back to college to get a degree, their son had nice clothes, warm and comfortable bed to sleep in.

ALL WAS GOOD... they even donated to people who had less than they did.

Then one Friday night, during his 2 a.m. delivery to a 7 Eleven, the husband was stacking Coke products on his hand cart to deliver to the store, when some Maggot, some Boil on the Ass of Society decided to rob him of roughly $40 he had on his person, since all of the payments for the Coke products were electronic payments with no cash involved.

When the MAGGOT realized the HARD WORKING FATHER only had $40, he shot him in the head and killed him.

Imagine the trauma the wife and son went through, the woman had to stop going to college and start looking for a job to help keep a roof over her son's head.

All of a sudden housing, water bills, power bills, transportation bills, heat, AC, food, clothes everything her husband had been providing came to an immediate stop.

She likely went to some GOOD CHRISTIANS like the FOOL ABOVE who told her the most ridiculous EXCUSE FOR NOT HELPING I HAVE EVER HEARD.. Jesus does not want us to help you.

So, her name was forwarded to my wife, who made sure the woman had a month of food, made sure the woman had cash for living expenses and then we provided a full and complete Christmas for both her and her son, with new clothes, a new bicycle, worked with resources to make sure she survived until things got better.

I don't know how SICK somebody has to be, to come up with a SCHEME to avoid helping those in need, but this bullshit that JESUS would want you to AVOID HELPING OTHERS is perhaps one of the most OBSCENE things I have read.

I REFUSE to believe in any DEITY that would even suggest I should not help others.

I would much rather believe in my wife, who believes those who stumble and fall, often need somebody to GIVE A SHIT to help them up.

I find few things more pathetic, than those who stand by watching people suffer, while making excuses, INSANE excuses RATIONALIZING why they should not help them... at least a little.

You say, those who help the homeless and needy are not REAL CHRISTIANS?

I hope I never, ever suffer the virus that has clearly consumed your heart and mind.

I have never met a homeless person as pathetic as someone who uses JESUS as their EXCUSE not to help people in need.

That rent has nothing to do with it. It is no ones obligation to lower rents just so home Homeless bum can have cheap rent and not pay their bills. Those Bums have no jobs so keep the rent out of it. Those Bums have mental issues like you do.

to the guy who thinks the bible states not to help people by feeding them... Jesus said, when you feed the least you have fed me, when you cloth the least you have clothed me. Maybe the guy quoting the bible needs to go to church and join a bible study.

On another note, there are resources for people who truly want help, you can not force a person to seek help.

jt, I forgot my phone today so I couldn't take pictures but you should come out here to Winterplace Park and watch what taxpayers are paying for. Truck number 8 is used by 2 black guys who come out here almost everyday and I've seen them do absolutely nothing. I'm sure Culver doesn't care but something needs to be done. Talk about bums. I never had a job where I could do nothing but hide and get a paycheck. Somebody needs to explain how this is possible.

dize man get somewhere. You are the biggest bull shitter liar on the face of the earth. Everyone has your number. You are forever trying to make yourself more important then you are and everyone knows you are a pathological liar. You haven't done shit nor amounted to anything your entire pathetic life.

Anonymous said...

The Bible CLEARLY says you do not work you do not eat. What Jesus talks about are the truly needy and not the drunkards or others who are abusing their bodies which is also a sin. You people need to join a Bible study a REAL one and not the fake ones 99.9 percent of you people attend and the fake churches. That's why you all are not blessed. Why illness and financial troubles and drug addicts and criminals and bums are in your families and circles. God hates your kind of ugly that when someone tells you the truth you don't want to hear. Keep on sinning.

Jon Dize is a pervert freak. He thinks taking pictures of naked women is something to brag about and that everyone envy's him. If that is what he really does since it's a known fact he has and always has had major issues with telling the truth. He brings it up every time he sees a door open as if everyone will be in awe. He's another B Burke formerly of Pocomoke. Full of shit and brags because he is a nothing.

One further order we must give you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: don’t associate with the brother whose life is undisciplined, and who despises the teaching we gave him. You know well that we ourselves are your examples here, and that our lives among you were never undisciplined. We did not eat anyone’s food without paying for it. In fact we toiled and laboured night and day to avoid being the slightest expense to any of you. This was not because we had no right to ask our necessities of you, but because we wanted to set you an example. When we were actually with you we gave you this principle to work on: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” Now we hear that you have some among you living quite undisciplined lives, never doing a stroke of work, and busy only in other people’s affairs. Our order to such men, indeed our appeal by the Lord Jesus Christ, is to settle down to work and eat the food they have earned themselves.
2 Thessalonians 3:10

hey 339, let me explain. this is how govt works, hire lots of people even though there is nothing for them to do. then you tell them to go somewhere where "supervisors" can't see them. if for some reason we might need you for something, we will call you on your govt issued cell phone. IT'S CALLED OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND. F the taxpayers, they have lots of money. so much for culver cutting waste. WHAT A FRICKEN JOKE

5.28 is sooooooo correct. I watched county workers around 2 weeks ago [ 3 of them] at Fruitland overseeding a ball field. 2 watched and one drove the tractor.And lo and behold neither blade of grass has come up as of yesterday.But there is 60 k a year plus bennies out there wasting taxpayers money when it can be contracted for a fraction of the cost. Culver clean the dead wood out of you own houses before ypu EVEN think of being reelected.

Culver sucks. He has no clue whats going on. County employees leaving in the middle of the day and going home because they are asked to work? If county workers don't like their work order they just take personal time, vacation time, sick time or comp time and go back to their crib and get another 25 ouncer and big pork chop sandwich.

Anonymous said...

The first day Jack Heath is in office he will be getting a bunch of calls telling him exactly what the hell is going on. Culver has been warned, and county supervisors have been warned about what has been going on. When they lose their jobs they have nobody to blame but themselves. Lets see if the low lifes they have been protecting will help them pack up their offices and get the hell out. Get ready to add a few more to the homeless camp.

How do we go from a homeless problem to a Recs and Parks conversation? Then onto Culver? David Reichenberg...its time you stop getting information from those still employed by the County to bully others....grow up. Do something positive with your time like finding answers to the real problems instead of slandering others....
