In these scenarios, the homeless are picking their own destination, am I right?

Obviously, Los Angeles was a major destination. I didn’t also know that it was a major busser. Interesting (though not entirely surprising) to note that Atlanta and Orlando were also major destinations.

No. They're given a bus ticket and told goodbye.

Just like many in mental health facilities, they're just shipped around when there's overflow

They can ignore the bus ticket and the goodbye, right?

I'm not sure. It probably depends on circumstance.

What is "depends on circumstance"? You mean they are forced to move?

Some are, yes. Or the homeless shelter feeding them will cease giving them food unless they take the ticket to another homeless shelter on the other side of the country.

The patients in mental health facilities that are shipped in this same way, but of them, they cannot say no. For them, it is forced.

Yeah it's pretty bad. But no one really cares because there's already 3 million people in prison in the US. People are treated like cattle in the US

No one really cares? Such a nation that pretend to be civil.

There are some people who care, but they've been meticulously boxed out for decades now, and many have simply given up
