The government in Clearwater, Florida is sick of dealing with homeless people, therefor they're seeking to "solve" the problem by making the act of sitting anywhere on a "public right of way" an arrestable offense.
Via the Tampa Bay Times:
CLEARWATER — This city could soon outlaw a harrowing crime: sitting.The law exempts people who are experiencing medical emergencies, and also protesters are allowed to sit or lie down so long as they're carrying "signs or literature explaining the protest."
Surely, there is no way this law will be abused.
