In 2016, 564,708 people were considered homeless. Of that number, 83,170 were considered chronically homeless. Another 47,725 of the homeless population are veterans.
Homelessness is a serious problem and not a choice many would voluntarily make unless of course you are a “crusty punk” or “crumb bum?”
Today, “crusty punks,” “crusties,” “gutter punks,” “crumb bums” and “dirty kids,” are proud to call themselves VOLUNTARILY homeless.
This group of young adults, no doubt inspired by the previous administration’s high unemployment rates of 15 percent in 2014 for millennials, have just decided that living on the streets is the life for them.
They reject the more traditional 9-to-5 lifestyle in favor of having American taxpayers pick up the tab for them.
While unemployment numbers under President Donald Trump are at an all time low, “crusties” aren’t convinced to look for work.
Instead, they hop trains, panhandle and remain homeless by choice.
While once tolerated by police and local residents, that is no longer an option. The “crusties” are becoming a nuisance and a liability to cities and states around the country.
For example, in New York City’s East Village, there has been an increase in drug use in local parks, camps set up outside of apartment buildings and millennials sleeping in front of stores.
There have also been reports of one “crusty’s” pit bull killing the smaller dog of a man who lived in the area.
The lawbreaking millennials come from middle-class families. Some hop trains, hoping to make $150 a day (or roughly $3,000 month, tax-free) from panhandling.
A 22-year-old Florida college dropout, who admits to an alcohol and heroin issue, boasts of making $15 an hour panhandling in Union Square, holding a sign that reads “Traveling Broke and Sexy.”
“The girls here like it that I’m dirty and I ride trains.”
A 20-year-old “crusty” in Portland, Oregon says he likes the party-like atmosphere.
“There’s a big crowd of us here. Every night it’s a party with all our friends.”
At night, you can find these “crusties” on dirty streets or often in boarded-up lots of once booming neighborhoods.
Activist Philip DePaolo told the New York Daily News that:
“It’s like St. Marks in the ’70s,” referring to a once-notorious street in Manhattan. “It’s the bad old days all over again. There’s crack and heroin all over the neighborhood.”
Interestingly, municipalities are at a loss of how to handle the problem of millenial “delinquency.”
Let me see if I can help the liberal leadership in these towns figure out the best course of action to take concerning these issues.
