    It's overwhelmingly young people from what i've seen, you've got a lot of the older dudes who might as well be part of the scenery by this point but before i left wellington i was seeing a lot of young people, late teens to mid 20s roughing it. Unsure why, lack of jobs or increase in housing costs perhaps. I myself had to call the pavement my bed on a few occasions due to the instability of my mental health, lack of job security and the lack of a support network when i needed it most. I think that last one is the most important, with counsel flats being torn down left and right and the mental health support network being what it currently is, the support is really being torn right out from under young people.

    Also winz is less than ideal for help as you need an address to even apply, and once you've gotten over that hurdle without a home you're at best going to receive around 110 bucks a week, which you'd think would sound like a lot for someone with no roof to pay for but that money disappears very quickly after you've bought food, hot showers so you're clean for interviews, replacing your pack and all your clothes when they get stolen (happened to me a lot)
    I mean bloody hell the night shelter used to charge us a dollar fity for a bloody cup of tea. It's all absolutely exhausting.

    Sociopaths are by nature very unpleasant lacking any real ability to empathise, I am pretty sure that's what he is. Scary that if he is who we think he is, he has access to firearms and even a uniform. Vetting fails some times.
