Something quietly came to pass, this week, in the city of Fresno, just outside of San Francisco, which will, hopefully, focus public attention on, as well as remedy, the cruel and inhuman treatment this nation's homeless receive at the hands of city officials. The American Civil Liberties Union and The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights won their suit against Fresno on behalf of six homeless people who asserted that police and sanitation workers treated their personal possessions as if they were garbage, and bulldozed the encampments where they had lived for 3 years.
