The board governing Killeen’s homeless shelter voted Monday night to reopen the shelter on or before Aug. 9.

The Friends in Crisis shelter at 412 E. Sprott St. in downtown Killeen has been closed since May 18 due to funding issues.

Reading through the article I see comments about arresting the homeless if found sleeping in unauthorized areas, and they can cool off in the library as long as they don't eat or fall asleep. Why are people in positions of authority treating these poor homeless people as if they are lepers? Arresting people for the crime of homelessness? You people make me sick. Many of you are a paycheck away from homelessness yourselves. I'm appalled at the lack of empathy made apparent in this article.
