    Those homeless people are some of the nicest people in Pensacola. Many people are falling on hard times and there will be more. They don’t want to be told how to live, but they are not holding up stores either. Leave them out of this, what did they ever do to you?

    There is a large community of homeless people who hang out in that area.
