I recently watched a series of shows about cities that have deteriorated because of homelessness. First city up was San Francisco, where pooping on the sidewalks there is so common that there are now Smartphone Apps to tell you where the poop is. In addition, San Francisco city leaders declared they would not prosecute shoplifting crimes under $950, so shoplifting in local stores is now commonplace. Lo and behold, Austin was one of the cities shown on the program, thanks to a recent ordinance legalizing sidewalk sleeping and camping, thus drawing the homeless from other cities in Texas. My question for this forum is that if Austin becomes a sh**hole like San Francisco, will recruiting suffer? Will the 6th Street district become one big outhouse? I was born in Austin and spent most of youth there, including my years at UT, but now I’m thinking I’ll never visit again.
