KPD: Homeless man's body found in North Knoxville creek

They are homeless & seriously mentally ill. 
They live under bridges, next to creeks. 
They self medicate themselves to a state of numbness and
accidentally fall into creeks or stumble into the path of traffic
and they die. 
Their sad story makes the headlines, then they're forgotten again.
A health & safe society is not what they're getting --
But it's what they deserve.
I have to wonder if he was one of the 300+ served
Under the Bridge last night.
