Someone said :
Should more be done to help them or are some people just a lost cause?
Something inside of me tells me that no human being should be a lost cause, or abandoned by their society as such.
However, who's job is it to help them?
For example, what help could you have provided today?
If you'd given money, if wouldn't have been enough. If you'd directed them to a social services office [Trinity Court is just around the corner from where you were] you would have been told to fuck off in no uncertain terms.
Arresting them all is not the answer as it will just put a huge strain on the Gardai as all those arrests have to be processed, video-taped, court-dated etc; and then 3 hours later they will be back out on the streets.
Something needs to be done for sure.
However I'm baffled as to what the solution may be.
