And if a homeless person spends the money on drugs or booze then he should. The feeling when you have a real sh .... day, work only stress, nothing works out - and you long for a beer or glass of wine and end of work.? This is the feeling a homeless person has 24/7. People have no privacy, no place to retreat, a homeless person never really sleeps, any
I don't think you can compare the "after work beer" situation to the alcohol addiction of many homeless people.

Partly I agree with you but the point about the hard day and drugs I don't think is ok
If I notice someone wants to buy only booze or drugs from the money I am indirectly to blame if he takes harm or worse apart from how shitty life on the road is and how hard it makes it no better if he is completely befuddled still robbed
In addition, the offers where actually food is issued by far not enough and certainly are not as cool as an awesome roll from the bakery topped with everything possible
I can only recommend this documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY7XboW7Qgo
It is incredibly difficult to put yourself in these people's shoes and I don't blame anyone for that. But you can't imagine such addictive pressure.
