See, there's an area under a bridge downtown about a mile away, where the city has officially designated for the homeless to congregate. It's literally a shanty town of sheets, cardboard boxes and such under there, a disgusting jungle of filth and debauchery, and some of them like to go wander about during the day.
The corner store I showed is a draw because they sell beer, thus we have them wandering about our area as opposed to some others.
There are plenty of rude, obnoxious cop watchers who just go out there looking for confrontations to use as cheap click bait, and I don't like them any more than a bully cop. Except for the gun, badge, and authority to arrest, they are one in the same. Neither is a worthy ambassador.
