My attention has just been drawn to a post which exposes several campsites in a particular city.The reporter gives enough information to confirm that he does not have the permission of the homeless people concerned to publicize their camp locations. Never-the-less , the budding journalist takes it upon himself to publish photos which potentially expose those unfortunate homeless people concerned to move on orders. This style of reporting is gung-ho the gutter level reportage one expects from those devoid of social justice ethics.

If you are reporting on homelessness issues, please do nothing to further exacerbate the already grim circumstances faced by those homeless people. Get some authenticity about your article by actually asking the people concerned. Unless you’re the type conceited enough to believe you already know everything. Especially, please ensure photographs are permission based.
