    Anti-homeless sprinkler systems 'inhumane'

    Building owners in Auckland's CBD which have overnight sprinkler systems in their doorways to deter rough sleepers are being labelled 'inhumane'.

    The Chamber of Commerce said it was the wrong response, but it was an expression of frustration from business owners that the council was not doing more to deal with the issue of homelessness.
    Nine to Noon understands that the private school ACG Senior College in Lorne Street, as well as buildings on Queen Street and Fort Lane, have the sprinkler systems, which run periodically through the night.

    ------

    When I leased commercial office space boy/girl racers using the carparks were the actual pain in the butt. But unsurprisingly the cowards in their ivory towers like to bully those who are at the bottom. Homeless people must be bums, because after all, anyone can be successful, right? Such fools wouldn't survive a night of homelessness.

    Homeless people have little or noting to loose so the a-holes shouldn't be surprised when their grand plan draws more "unwanted attention".

    They should try some forebearance. They might be surprised what they learn.

    You've got to admit that the sprinkler systems idea is clever. I don't approve in the slightest, but surely it's within the rights of the business to wet their own premises periodically.

    Not 'inhumane' if the rough sleeper isn't forced to be there.

    But the underlying problem is a real problem, and needs some serious addressing. There are way more visible homeless in Auckland now than I can remember at any point in the past.

      Your post is a fine example of the problem. NIMBYism is alive and well in New Zealand. Few really care about the problem - though many even profess bleeding heart sentiments - as long as it's not in their back yard.

      That is the deal with homelessness. Always on the move, always being targeted by the faux-upper class (who are 3 months from bankruptcy themselves) and constantly being damn well blamed for stuff which has nothing to do with them.

      People with homes cause far more problems.

        Free showers for the homeless.
        Claim the costs back as a charitable donation?

          I've seen one of these in the doorway of a business in the CBD; sprinkler is triggered by an infrared motion sensor. Apparently they put it in after repeatedly having to clean away number ones and number two's from their door in the morning.

            Hopefully they won't be surprised when they find their windows smashed, etc.

              Because the appropriate answer to an inconvenience is crime?

              If it would be reasonable to expect this sort of aggressive response from a subgroup of society, such people should be moved on. Whether they be the homeless, the drunk or daring youth, or those high on whatever the substance of the day is - any who would be expected to cause damage to people or property in retaliation for a non-damaging action, should not be there.

              I, for one, wouldn't expect any particular group of people to react so poorly. Do you think so little of our disadvantaged, Michael? You clearly think very little of the wealthy.

                You are clearly out of touch in your ivory tower. When someone is down on their luck and you kick them, they have nothing to lose in comparison to you. You are so arrogant to claim (quote) "in retaliation for a non-damaging action", but it is. You see, everyone in their ivory tower wants the homeless to be somewhere else, anywhere else, "as long as they are not in my backyard".

                It gets cold in winter so now their actions (which you are trying to justify) have made someone cold and wet. This could well be what tips them over the edge. We all have breaking points.

                Homelessness is one of those things which turns a percentage of outwardly-normal people into judge, jury and executioner. It presents an opportunity for them to become sadistic liars and unfortunately some just can't resist the opportunity to try and compensate for their own shortcomings and lack of human insight.

                Conversely, some will rise to the occasion and help in small ways - often without even realising it. Ironically, but unsurprisingly, they are not the card carrying bleeding heart left-wingers - who have plenty of hypocritical prescriptions about what others should do and pay for.

                Unfortunately the housing affordability crisis has pushed the envelope for homelessness a lot further so your stereotyping is fast becoming even more detracted from reality. I would go even further and suggest in due course there are people in this forum who will be homeless one day.

                    In all seriousness, there is a mental health services problem in this country. In that, those who need these services just can't get access to them.

                    If you have lots of money you can get in and see someone straight away, but if you have a suicidal teen, then it's 6 months before you can see anyone in the public health service.

                      That's assuming the breakdown comes first.

                        there is no excuse for somebody being homeless in NZ, our benefit system looks after those who chose not to look after themselves.............and if i had a ivory tower and some homeless git was pissing in my doorway i would set the pitbulls on him

                          Typical landlord git sort who likes pissing on the poor and then whines like a pig when they piss back.

                          The benefit system can't keep up with demand. I suggest you pay more tax (then then pittance you presently pay) to help things out.

                              Well, be a good lad then and get into the kitchen. You have a lot of baking to do.
