The City recently swept a homeless encampment while its residents ate much-needed food at Glide church across the street. On July 31, patrons of Glide saw their tents and belongings swept from the sidewalks in front of the church and across the street, as some waited for a free meal. 

A staff member reported that an intern of hers saw a walker belonging to a homeless senior confiscated and thrown into a public works truck. This echoed an incident that occurred two years ago to Neil Taylor, a homeless man and talented pianist — his walker was crushed, leaving him to fend with his Parkinson’s disease alone.
