So much for a good deed.

Last nite I hung out with Ms. GreyCats and a few other Philly folk. We went out for a quick after work drink and then saw a showing of Al Gore's movie Inconvenient Consequences. On the way back Ms. GreyCats and I strolled thru some of the Independence area buildings on our way back home. We came across a woman who was passed out behind one of the buildings. She was lying on some stairs on her back. We were concerned because we thought that she looked liked she was drunk and might be in trouble. We walked a few blocks to find a police officer. In front of Independence Hall Ms. GreyCats flagged down a National Park Service Officer and we told him the situation. He called over to a co-worker and we told him the story. We were told that this woman is a known homeless person and that we shouldn't worry about it. We were assured that an officer would do a "health and welfare" check on her. I doubt that they even bothered after that. At least we tried.

Uh you forgot to add the part where they called her "anti-social" aka crazy. We should have stolen her shoes, they were kind of cute:)

I'd be anti-social too if I were homeless.

She did have cute shoes and a cute purse too :)

As an ex-cop from the city of which you speak... You can only do so much. It's like the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dike holding back the deluge.
