Although I understand that the homeless man may have been limited in options when it came to protecting himself from the cold, I believe that his reason for trespassing can not be dismissed. Considering he can not provide protection for himself, placing the man in a shelter will not only benefit his well-being, but will also prevent him from trespassing in the future.
The homeless should be forcibly moved to a shelter. This case of a homeless man convicted of criminal trespassing winning a new trial in court, where the court argued, that he should have been allowed to argue, since it was his only way to protect himself from the cold raises several questions concerning the homeless.
The homeless population has very few options available to them, but one of the best may be living in a shelter. It at least provides them with a temporary fix while they are waiting to lift themselves out of poverty. Because of this, I think it should be a requirement for all homeless people to live in a shelter.
No, the homeless should not be forcibly moved to a shelter. However, the option should remain open so that cases like that trial do not occur again. Homeless shelters should be increasingly available and publicly open. They should be seen more frequently than they are now so that homeless people will not have to walk too far to get to one.
