For months, Killeen’s homeless have been a topic of discussion among residents, local elected officials and shelter representatives.

The Friends In Crisis homeless shelter’s lawn has now turned into a tent city, with 20 to 25 pitched at one time.

Just from reading and seeing the pictures the Herald has printed over the last few days this "tent city" is about one step away from fire or disease breaking out. I am surprised that the insurance company for the shelter hasn't said anything.
