Kalamazoo is home to Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College, a respected nationally ranked liberal arts college (ranked about 20 spots higher than Cornell college). It’s one of the highest educated small cities in the USA. Great town.

this policy is likely intended to decriminalize being an unhoused person and save them from a kafkaesque cycle of fines and imprisonment, and get them the help they need.

maybe it will work. I’m all for trying innovative approaches to deal with the poverty and displacement caused by neoliberal capitalism.

do all y’all Christian fascists think that we need more people in prison? We already have THE HIGHEST INCARCERATION RATE IN THE WORLD, about 2.5 million Americans in the prison-industrial complex, a wonderful “captive customer base” for a big corporatized “industry”.

grow up, people. Open your eyes.
