Grace marketplace needs to be destroyed
I know not sports but so tired of this shite. Every fricking corner now and every light has beggars. Can’t go anywhere without multiple people begging for money and these stupid a-holes will try to guilt trip you or persist. I’m so done with the homeless population created by giving them a community. Now the homeless population has quadrupled in the last few years. Destroy the area. Ban homeless from downtown. Kick them out of store properties and trespass them.

Last week some guy tried to enter my GFs car with her in it to ask for a ride. She pulled her gun out of her purse and told him to frick off. Her gun wasn’t loaded she is scared to carry a loaded gun I force her to keep that just to show, cause usually the site of a gun is enough. It worked that time. If it hadn’t who knows what happens.

Back to the point. Every fricking place near downtown is being overrun by trashy homeless people and it’s ridiculous.

An unloaded gun?

She is terrified. Though we now have land and I'm buying her a shotgun as well to learn how to shoot out here. Once she has more experience she will be fine. She grew up in the city and her father was crappy and never taught his daughter things like this.

It would get worse if Grace was not there.

The homeless used to have some kind of tent city in BFE. The landowner wanted to sell the land and the cops kicked them out. Now we have homeless living where ever there is land with some trees. Especially by I 75

That said I hope that every freeze we have sends them south.

The problem seems to have grown substantially since Grace though. The Archer fends are still there but most have moved downtown.

So… you’re you are the one who makes eye contact with me and keeps driving. ?? if everyone would give me 5 bucks then I’d leave you alone. For a day anyways.

It has gotten worse to me. You can’t go anywhere these days. I saw 2 at university and 13th. Almost one at every intersection if not 2. It’s sad and annoying.

I graduated 4 years ago, and I don’t remember this being much of a problem.

Has Gainesville got worse?

Yes sir. My understanding is that an ordinance was changed or lapsed that makes it easier to pan handle.

Far worse. Quickly. I left for five years and came back and it’s insane man. They are like roaches. They have no shame either. Will harass you for money, watch you in stores to see if you pull out cash, walk up at restaurants if outside and ask for food and pressure you. I stopped being nice about it a month ago. Now I cold stare them and if they start talking I tell them go away. Just not interested anymore
