Early in 2015 the city of Honolulu under pressure from wealthy tourists passed a" No sit no lie ordinance" making sitting or lying down in the Waikiki area a criminal offence.The excuse was that the homeless bothered the tourists.
Over the years I have seen many of these unfortunate souls .Not once were we harrased or otherwise bothered by these folks.
Very sad to see , but forcing the homeless to move somewhere else does not solve anything.
These people in most cases have nowhere to go and taking away whatever little they have so wealthy tourists do not see them is wrong.The homeless are not invisible . It could be anyone of us ,
Sorry for the rant but it make me sick to see how some people are treated.
Please take a look at my other photos with the title "not all paradise"
