Judge imposes homeless ban for all of Hamilton County to 'prevent nuisance from spreading'

A Hamilton County judge on Thursday banned homeless camps in all of Hamilton County and told police they should arrest anyone who defies his order.

The ruling from Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman follows days of fighting in court over homeless camps that first appeared on Third Street Downtown and later moved to other locations.

Ruehlman has set increasingly restrictive boundaries for the homeless camps throughout the week, but the people from those camps have continued to set up new camps just beyond the judge's boundaries.

By Thursday afternoon, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said he'd had enough and would ask Ruehlman to ban homeless camps across the county.

1. Too lazy to get to the root of the problem

So they just push it further and further away.

2. This homeless group has now settled in a private park on the northern edge of downtown Cincinnati.

As of Friday, a group of homeless had been given permission to camp in a private park owned by advocates for public housing.
The Cincinnati police will take no further action unless a health problem or criminal activity arises.
A number of local groups are providing food for the new residents.

See Cincinnati.com for more information.

3. Then the judge needs to

Offer a solution to homelessness or direct the county legislative branch to do so and hold them to his order.

4. Cost more to jail someone than to house them.

Come winter 3 hots and cot doesn't sound so bad.
