The malicious reason for the increase in street people in downtown Oklahoma City

 

  2005 2006 2007
Street and Encampments 94 416 658
Crisis Facilities 95 22 12
Emergency Shelters 724 627 683
Transitional Housing 569 490 577
Total 1482 1555 1930

 Many that I encounter have been permanently banned from the mission,usually for a small infarction.(They have no access to the inside and the simple services such as documentation)
Ex; standing on the sidewalk outside of the City Rescue Mission,after getting off the bus.

No,I am not exaggerating.I hope to document in the future how many of these there are that have been banned.

I can make a good assumption that the number is in the 100’s;hence the reason for the huge increase from 2005-2007 listed on your site.658-94=564 more people in two years,which is not in proportion to the other columns.Next survey ask them this specific.

 I know Ron Jensen(employee of the CRM) gets a thrill every time,he gives someone a “Vacation”(kicks them out) and he has never had qualms about kicking a mother and small children out in the freezing winter cold without jackets.For weeks at a time. I know this for a fact.You know that I do not artificially inflate facts to sensationalize an expose…The truth is bad enough.

We have some serious problems created by a few men.Is your organization in a position to change this nondocumentation that hinders many from getting the help they need? Is it verifiable government red tape,I need to know before I proceed on this research,to write an informed article so that those wanting to help may come up with a viable answer based on these obstacles.
