Storyline

"Under the Bridge: The Criminalization of Homelessness" is a documentary film about one summer in Indianapolis, a tent city under a bridge, a man named Maurice, and the criminalization of homelessness in the United States. The unofficial "mayor" of the Davidson St. camp, Maurice is an older, dreadlocked Black man who has dropped out of "normal" society to minister to the homeless. His camp under a railroad track becomes a real community, supported by church volunteers, until police and bulldozers close in to shut it down.

What happened to vegrancy laws?
15 August 2018 | by anderbobSee all my reviews

Right down to the sad music this is just another lib show that promotes people to be homeless instead of bettering their lives through WORK. Most of them could be raking leaves, cleaning gov buildings, and an endless list of options. But it appears that drugs and alcohol is their main desire.
