As someone un-housed, I say 'thanks but no thanks.

I DO NOT WANT "SANCTUARY".

I want a legal place to camp WITH OFFICIAL (ie. Government or NGO) OVERSIGHT.

I want a police officer or government hired security guard on site at all times.

I DO NOT WANT a "Volunteer Thug Force"as seen at #OSC.

I want to be able to sleep without having one eye open all the time and that's ALL I need.

The idea of Brent Adam's friends running some sort of "Alternative Shelter" scares the crap out of me.
