This Is Not A Good Trend

Attacks on homeless people are going up. Don't click this if you're a sensitive sort. It's a link to a description of several attacks, and a list of some nasty abuses.
What kind of people do this? Probably the same kind who abuse children and animals. It takes a special degree of moral degradation to want to injure the powerless. And with the large number of homeless veterans, and homelessness increasing as a result of the collapse of the housing market, we're in for some bad times, folks.

Incidentally, the title of the story is interesting: "Unprovoked beatings of homeless men." It seems to imply that a provoked beating would've been acceptable. How do you provoke a beating?
