This actually made me sad. He's so cute and innocent looking.

Looks like a young version of Johnny Depp or Leonardo Dicaprio.

Homelessness is a terrible tragedy and it tends to affect the most vulnerable members of society: minorities, the very young and the very old, those who are the product of generational poverty and to a lesser extent, those who are dealing with psychological issues. The way in which these human beings are treated is beyond horrifying and we ought to remember that having a home is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT. It's downright criminal that governments are not taking any steps to protect these people and re-integrate them into wider society, but waste billions on wasteful programs that are deliberately designed to not solve anything at all, but feeds a network of NGOs that serve very specific political purposes - as always, the institutions are headed by immoral, depraved psychopaths.

What we need is to re-distribute wealth and make it illegal for anyone to accumulate more than certain amounts, especially because billionaires build their fortunes on corporate welfare from the state, which is tantamount to extreme corruption. Regarding this poor child, it's incredibly shameful, sad and painful that he and all other homeless people are in such an awful situation in what is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, which devotes a scandalously high percentage of its budget to feed the Military Industrial Complex that heads what is, in reality, nothing more than a repugnant cabal of death mongers.

Sad. Poor guy can't stand still. He's itching everywhere and needs a bath real bad. How he got money for that tattoo baffles me. He most certainly needs some help from a care agency or family which there seems not to be any that are willing to step in.

I'm utterly shocked at the superficiality of DLers. This is an extremely important issue and nobody is commenting on it, which is unbelievable. It truly appears that unless a thread has to do with hating some politician, extolling the virtues of straight men or yakking about long-forgotten divas, you don't care about anything.

Gosh, this place NEVER fails to disappoint.

Poor guy. He never even had a chance because of the family he comes from. Abused and left to fend for himself. What a deeply sad situation. He's a prime candidate for an overdose or fatal violence and a lot of people like this don't make it to 30. It's appalling that the richest country in the world has so many homeless people and wilfully doesn't do anything to fix the problem so it just keeps getting worse and the homeless underclass grows and grows.

by Anonymousreply 11February 11, 2024 1:39 AM

Heartbreaking. He's had every disadvantage and the people who should care don't care. I hope he can get some kind of help and get his life on track. There's so many people in his situation. Everybody has failed this kid.

Capitalism probably helps its adherents rationalize culling parts of the population for the sake of profit. Other things that are regularly rationalized include war profiteering, birthing children that the parent can't support, and eagerly giving money to large corporations; so this tracks. Governmental leaders don't even think about issues until it affects their election chances and this year, nobody gives two shits about homeless people. As I could be homeless in a few years, related subreddits like r/vandwelling, r/urbancarliving, r/almosthomeless, & r/homeless are a great way to understand people's current process, compare the different situations in different cities/regions, and plan for yourself at a high level. Also, the r/vagabond sub is more of an adventuresome vibe...if that's your thing.

Let's make sure we polarize every issue so that a way out can't be found.

Of course it's a shame on all of us, our nations, and our world that power is in the hands of a few, humanity is being played for infantile suckers from whom every resource can be siphoned, medievalist strong-man politics on every continent except Australia are on the rise, the veneer of global standards and rules is being ripped through, and personal irresponsibility is allowing it to happen. Plus the planet is 15 years away from the impact of the climatic tipping point being reached, as the Atlantic currents collapse for the first time in 10,000 years, all because of our greed and avarice as a species.

That's no reason to be such a MARY, R1.

R17, that's kind of like asking whether there are pleasures in this world better than drugs. I don't know if there are any TBH.

Something tells me you wouldn't be so Helen Lovejoy about it if he was a 40 yr old fuggo.

by Anonymousreply 19February 11, 2024 9:03 PM

It can be done, R17. This child is on drugs because of his desperate situation - the trauma of being homeless is magnified by constant isolation broken by mostly negative interactions with other people, and the uncertainty of not knowing when the next act of aggression will com from, or whether he will be able to eat at all. Drugs and alcohol protect against the cold, help to make fear less painful and above all, suppress the feeling of hunger.

The model that Finland has implemented has been EXTREMELY successful and helped to rapidly solve homelessness: provide people with a home, therapy and training, and make them get a job during training while they get constant support from trained professionals. This is MUCH cheaper and effective than hoping that homeless people will go somewhere else, or simply die.

And R19, you're wrong. This is a child in a terrible situation and I am not a fucking creep. If it were an unattractive 40-year-old men, I would be just as saddened and outraged by this egregious injustice. In short: not everybody is like you, sweetie.

I'm with R8 about how the interviewer is using the poor kid for lurid copy. He keeps pressing him for details of how he was raped, and he's probably wanking to it when he gets home.

From the comments section:

[quote]@shux6039 2 months ago

[quote]That's Tyler Adkins, my only best friend in phoenix and we used to be around each other 24/7 i still remember when the bastard boiled ghost peppers in water and gave it to me, good times but unfortunately I moved away. he still has a channel up called Lethal Scopez that he used to post gameplay to its sad because we really wanted to become famous youtubers and he progressed so fast within a span of 3 months he had so much potential, unfortunately he didn't have much self control and was contempt towards what he had (which was a lot) and sadly fell to hard drugs (or so his dad told me). at the time of this video I'm unsure whether or not his dad went back to prison, but I do know that he had grandparents that not too far from where he was at that would have been more than happy to see his face and help out as well as his step mother who would have helped her step son out no problem, their family was very loving and forgiving and I would spend at least 3 days out of the week with them when I did live there I know they loved Tyler and its just a shame that he doesn't reach out for help for whatever reason. I hope when I go back I can find him.

R22 Wow, maybe he should learn some skills besides playing video games on youtube. I hope he stays in a rehab for at least a year, if he does, he can get help and they can help him find a home too.

That is just evil, R32. So, instead of helping the poor and creating a fairer society where there aren't people who have more money than God and others who literally have nothing, your solution is to murder the destitute so they 'stop suffering'? That is the most twisted, deranged and sickening thing I have heard in a VERY long time.

He’s being exploited for clicks, and this guy won’t see any of the revenue earned from this video. The interviewer is atrocious in his line of questioning especially about sexual assault on males. It’s just another form of a modern day side-show or Victorian visiting the asylum to gawk. We all know there is a homelessness and addiction problem in society. Watching an endless stream of misery porn doesn’t create any change.
