4 dead so far this winter in PDX

Four people have died this winter in Portland due to hypothermia WHILE they were houseless.
The Portland Business Alliance & Charlie Hales are two names that come to mind when I ask myself why this has to happen like this!

4 dead and counting!

Some people need to be forcibly brought indoors? 12.Jan.2017 09:09

Some people fully aware of their situation and the dangers it presents,need to be forcibly brought in from the cold, against their will and then forced to stay in a building where it's warm. Is that the answer?
