This is the latest way the US is using to lower its homeless population.
---------------------
(CNN)The video is chilling. James Edgar Lewis is sleeping under a Las Vegas freeway when a dark-colored SUV passes by. Seconds later, a man wearing a dark top emerges from the vehicle and shoots Lewis twice in the head before fleeing.
There is no struggle, no fight. Lewis never even appears to wake up.
"It's basically an execution," said Lt. Dan McGrath of Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

Lewis' death on Friday has Las Vegas police looking for clues that may link the fatal attack to the shooting of another homeless man 10 minutes away and four days earlier.
On January 29, Brian Clegg was shot and killed, also while sleeping, in front of a business on a busy street.
"There is a possibility that these two incidents are related," said LVMPD spokeswoman Laura Meltzer. "A homeless person was sleeping when the person shot them."

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

China is more progressibve.

There are millions of homeless people and nobody shoots them, or very rarely.

The vast majority find refuge in McDonald's eateries. It's warm or cool as the season may warrant, the chairs are free for them to occupy them, and occasionally some patron leaves some food on their tray for the homeless to finish.

Whenever I pass by a McDonald's it is full of Chinese. And among the Chinese you can be sure are some who have no fixed abode. They are the lucky ones - they have a few coins to spare to buy a COke. Others don't enter because they are stark naked.

But my claim is not based on imagination. The CD had a thread here a few years ago about a woman who died in a McDonald's. She had in fact been homeless and simply expired inside a McDonald's. I think this happened in Qingdao. Or maybe in Hong Kong - but in China anyway.
