Another one






Aaron Dennard had started to turn his life around, landing a job as a school janitor. "Why in the world would someone do this to someone so kind and gentle?" asked Edson Jarvis, the principal.


A homeless man has died of injuries suffered during a savage beating last week in Tampa.

Aaron Dennard, 49, was found beaten and unconscious on the trash-strewn porch of a vacant, boarded up home. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he died Sunday evening, police said.

Detectives are still searching for suspects in the attack.

Another one in Greensboro this week, too. A homeless man named Charlie was beaten to death. Many homeless people have died in Greensboro in the years that I've been serving in homeless outreach ministries. But in the past few years, more and more of those deaths have been violent. And that appears to be a trend across the nation, as well.

Correction to my comment above: Charlie died from his injuries the day after the beating.

This is sickening. People talk about homeless sometimes as though they are violent but over and over my sole experience has been just the opposite. In fact, those who approach me who are not just beaten-down people are emissaries of street-theater (seriously) purposely sent out to intimidate folk and give the homeless a bad rep. I talk to homeless people EVERY EVERY day. Each of them gentler than the next. If one acts otherwise look around for his companions and you'll quickly understand what I'm saying. I'm sorry if I'm ranting; I'm very angry. Maybe this guy saw the wrong thing at the school he was working at. Lots of things going on that shouldn't be. Maybe someone was trying to shut him up. I am very angry. This is just too much.

One of the most common misconceptions about homeless people is that they are criminals. In truth and fact, they are far more likely to be victims than perpetrators.

We need to stop asking "why." We know why it happens. The lives of the homeless are not valued. We need to start dealing with what has brought us to this level of inhumanity and lack of compassion.

A school janitor eh?
Isn't assualt on a school board employee a felony??
Well, I guess murder is anyway...
