HPD "cracks down" on the homeless…again

The last time HPD “cracked down” on the homeless was in September, 2007.

Almost one year later, it’s time to do it again (via KHOU-11):

Three Houston Police divisions are preparing for a zero tolerance initiative against the homeless.

Starting on Tuesday, the Houston Police Department will crack down on the city’s homeless. Some who know about the new initiative call it HPD politics, while others said it was a good move for safety. But whatever people said about the program, it was not a secret to those living on the streets.

Oooooo, zero tolerance! After today’s sweep, stay tuned for the next crackdown in late summer 2009.
