These people need shelters

In regards to the courthouse being disgusting.

Maybe you should check this facility very late at night – these people have no homes and use not only the courthouse but other government buildings as their personal housing and toilets. These people that work there do so with dedication, compassion, professionalism and do so under extreme conditions.

How many teams would it take to get these buildings ready for first morning clients? First you have to wait for these people to leave because they will run you off – then clean and you can bet people that do this job do not get paid minimum wage – would you clean up this mess of human waste every morning for minimum wage? It is costing us all many dollars. These people need shelters.
