The People Vs. Funkbot

If you want to read the article that Camille sent me and is being referenced in this blog click this link.

Camille: I'm really happy I found this article because it brings up a super important topic that I don't think people really talk about, which is how a person's personal rights fit into a greater society.

I'm absolutely, totally, 100% with this funkbot man. He should be able to not bathe, wear smelly clothes and have a bird's nest on his head. That is his right. But knowing he stinks, he should respect other people. He had all that money, why didn't he just buy a house where the walls or ventilation systems weren't connected to anyone else's?

Dante: Why are the people that are complaining being forced to deal with what one person, the realtor or whoever, made? I’m sorry but this guy is an asshole. I don’t care how normal he sounds and how once you get to know him he isn’t so bad. He sued the fucking MTA because they wouldn’t let him get on because of his look and smell. I wish buses did that more often! Am I supposed to be like “Oh, he is so well spoken and breaks the mold of what a hobo looks and acts like”? No. This guy is a selfish prick.

Let’s say you get $200,000. Why in the hell would you move to an expensive Downtown Los Angeles loft? We’ve talked about it being a nice place to visit but you wouldn’t want to live there. And why still have bags of garbage? You have a house now. Why all the bottles and cans? Recycling? Okay. Recycle it. Don’t use your house as a shopping cart. I know they’re trying to paint this guy sympathetically but he comes across as a dick to me.
