Yesterday, A march and a public meeting were held to bring attention to the issue of homelessness in Bloomington. The march came in the wake of the local uproar last week after Bloomington police initiated a mass ticketing of clients going to and from the Shalom Community Center, which serves the local homeless community. The marchers sought to bring attention to this and other forms of harassment of the homeless. To this end, after assembling at Shalom, they headed for the offices of the Herald-Times, to protest what they thought was a pattern of negative coverage of the homeless. WFHB Assistant News Director Joe Crawford was on the scene, and spoke with participants regarding their concerns for the local homeless, for this Daily Local News feature report.
