This means problems. It means more people out on the streets, more people living under conditions that will most likely lead to incidents of assault, rape, or even homicide. It means more chances for a revisiting of the HepA outbreak, or another disease. I don’t know what Tri-City is trying to pull, but this is the sort of short sighted crap that could lead to a lot of tragedy.
Heinlein was right, these are the Crazy Years and I expect we’re going to see even worse come down the pipe.
