I'd rather be in jail than be homeless, I'm actually surprised more homeless people don't try and break the law more to have a warm place to stay and have three meals to eat.
A lot of them though, they stay outside because they love drugs and once they go to jail they can't do that anymore.
Either way 15 years for that guy is ridiculous.

Excuse me, but not all homeless people choose to be homeless. It's not like they wake up one morning with an epiphany that they're going to spend the rest of their lives living on the streets struggling to make it day to day. Not everyone in life is given the same opportunities as say you or I have and so some have no options. This in turn may also be related to mental issues and health.Some homeless people choose to be homeless.
And how exactly do you suppose they do that? They do live on the streets after all and the chances of a company employing them for work is very very slim. Actually, more like not likely. If you live on the streets you have no home, probably a poor hygiene and companies wont be interested in offering you a job. And, as mentioned before, many homeless people suffer from mental illnesses. Lastly, the general public loves to live by the notion of "out of sight and out of mind". At least, that's what I've viewed while spending time in the poorer parts of Vancouver.They could easily get a job paying minimum wage
If you were to get word that a close uncle or aunt has recently been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and has taken to living on the streets and has taken up drugs your family, in most cases, wont be too open to taking that person in. Sure, there may be some cases where families do try to step in, but it seems to me that they would not want to deal with the stress involved in making sure that person can once again gain the needs to support themselves.I'm sure they have relatives
If the homeless person were to suffer from issues of drug abuse, addiction and or mental illness they would require lots of help. Most likely classes which involve living with a mental illness and defeating their addiction. And no, neither of these will magically disappear within a week. It takes a lot of time and patience and if your family members don't have the time I don't think they will be the ones to step in.
Was that supposed to be a joke? I mean, come on, grow up. If you're going to make such comments as the ones you made above I suggest you take the time to do a little research.But was this guy homeless or what?
Some poor homeless guy gets 15 years for unarmed robbery, while some woman only got 8 years for kidnapping and imprisoning her own daughter (see here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/w...re/7846696.stm? I... I... I'm lost for words.

Wow, 15 years. Thats a bit harsh considering he did a noble act while robbing the place...if that makes sense..and he was unarmed....its a shame. Granted it was robbery, but the length of conviction is ridiculous.
