So a homeless man was arrested and jailed for sleeping in a fancy hotel room, which had crystal chandeliers and a grand piano (“Squatting in a Suite: Homeless Man Checks Himself Into Luxury Hotel Downtown,” Nov. 7). Was it really necessary to call the cops? Was it really necessary to plaster the story all over the news? Was it really necessary to jail a homeless man?
No, it was not necessary, and it is a sad, pitiful state of affairs when a fancy room with “crystal chandeliers” takes priority over a human life.
