Not having a home is not a crime! Yet after the Supreme court ruled that it was constitutional to make it illegal to sleep in public spaces, countless towns and cities are sure to follow suit in the United States and make it illegal to sleep in public spaces.

Beyond the morals or ethics of this it has far reaching consequences for #MECFS and #LongC...
