    Yes, homelessness is a "problem". Murdering someone is not the answer.

    But me, a murderer... do contribute to society. What???

    Mental illness? Evil? Stupid? All three? At a minimum, the lines between the three touch at several places and probably cross like train tracks.

    β€œ…he told police after his arrest that homeless people are "a problem" and don't contribute to society…”

    Sounds like Eugenics:

    "We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living, and to leave living a great many people whom we at present kill. A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people's time to look after them." - George Bernard Shaw

    β€œIt is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.” -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
