Description

In a series of articles, Kohler and his colleague Tim O'Neill chronicle the city's attempts to use a municipal court order to round up homeless people and require them to clear streets of trash without actually charging them with any crime. After the first article, the city reversed its policy and eventually the court order was ruled unconstitutional by state and federal courts.
