I see where once again they show how tough they are on crime. Even when no crime exist. Making it a crime to even have housing tends to make me think they have no clue. Housing is a basic need to survive. When their own laws created the situation they still can't get it. Well if they find places for each and everyone that they uprooted would be a good thing if they really do. To force someone into the street because they knowingly created a situation to do so should make them liable for anything that might happen to the persons forced to be homeless. but we all know that isn't going to happen. Sooner or later they will paint themselves into a corner Go one law to far. Create problems for themselves as the have already only to make another law that makes it worse. Looks like the parents for Megan's law keep siring the pot and to what end one has to wonder. It has been said that when it comes to victims and offenders they are two sides to the same coin.

Racket (Crime)

A racket is an illegal business or scheme, usually run as part of organized crime. Engaging in a racket is called racketeering.

Traditionally, the word racket is used to describe a business (or syndicate) that is based on the example of the protection racket
and indicates a belief that it is engaged in the sale of a solution to a
problem that the institution itself creates or perpetuates, with the
specific intent to engender continual patronage.
