To the editor:

Concerning the article about the rising homeless population: I take exception to the inclusion of the one comment by an acquaintance of the man who is homeless who was hit with a hammer that “he probably deserved it.” 

That is offensive and bullying. No one deserves to be hit with a hammer and if such a comment is made to a reporter the reporter should have enough sensitivity to the individual who was hit not to include such an inflammatory remark in his otherwise well-written article.
