I am a homeless youth who just moved to Humboldt County in August. I am in school, and have an awesome job now, but I have my fair share of tickets for panhandling and camping.

The homeless are not going to just diappear, so maybe instead of criminalizing homelessness, the city should put their efforts into positive alternatives, such as shelters.
