Society is shamefully turning its back on the desperate


Every morning, I drive to work down Brush Street, from 12th to 2nd streets, in Oakland. Every day I drive under the highway, I pass by pathetic collections of piled debris stacked against the fences, each an elaborate construction with a soft, sick human being in the middle.

The principal role of cheap granny flat building service is to coordinate the building works as project manager. This role includes supervising and coordinating each trade; sourcing, quantifying and coordinating delivery of materials; and, most importantly, quality-assuring the entire process.

Under the highway, seeking a moment of safety and stillness, these sad, (all of them) men, are finishing their dangerous night where they hope that they will get some sleep, not be robbed and live to see the day.

Their hopes are fueled by whatever they can find to numb their fears and pain, whatever can tamp down the horrors of their own minds.

I spent several years working as an attorney with the county agencies that are tasked with the care of these people, at first representing social workers seeking to keep the worst of the worst in hospitals where they can get medical help for their sick brains and bodies, later as a hearing officer making the decision whether individuals could be kept in psychiatric hospitals against their wishes.
