Florida first in homeless attacks!‏

I’ve been looking at the news here at a hotel due to the fact that my aunts house burnt down and what is the main head line that makes the news on the bright house channel 13 correspondence? The fact that the state of Florida is number one in attacks on the homeless with 30 attacks last year and three of those being fatal attacks. All over my Facebook page I’ve been keeping up with events that have to do with the homeless as to keep any room for potential open as an effort of progress is meant to be made as the economic struggles of this nation continue to make it harder and harder for those that are homeless to have the ability to get of the streets and stay off the streets.

I thank you for taking notice of the fact that I had called, wondering what is going on with the rural aspect of homelessness as the county of Polk here in Florida is becoming a newly infested breeding ground for the low-incomed and I feel that if some thing is not done to bring for that an awareness of the fact that this particular area of Florida needs to be brought up to par with the changes in standards of living assumptions and considerations of different aspects of assistance to keep this from becoming a targeted area such as Miami/Dade.
