West Palm Beach plays "Baby Shark" on repeat

Postby Pacomia » Thu Jul 18, 2019 10:44 am

The Floridian city of West Palm Beach is now playing "Baby Shark" and "Raining Tacos" on repeat to drive out homeless at the waterfront.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49026273

This is actually hilarious, in my opinion, especially after the thread yesterday about the U.S. government playing "Baby Shark" at Guantanamo Bay for torturing prisoners, which was fake, but this is actually real. It's crazy.

So, what do y'all think about this? Is this a valid and reasonable way to get the homeless out? What else could be done with "Baby Shark"?

Are they sure it'll only drive away homeless people?

So instead of investing in homeless shelters or donating city funds to Habitat for Humanity they play some dumb meme song to drive away homeless people?

That cheap solution only moves the homeless away from the beach.

If you want to fix the problem you need to bust out the money.

Because it isn't a cheap solution to a problem, it's a waste of money meant to help everyone ignore a bigger problem.

I live in a big corporate town that has the biggest companies, and our city council seems to just suck up to the corporations at the expense of the residents. Also, the city is big enough that they sort of just stopped caring about the outskirts of the city.

Imagine seeing people suffering from the destitute conditions of homelessness and thinking, "I know the perfect solution! Let's torture them with shitty music until they leave!" instead of establishing homes for the homeless or something.

There won't be anyone to harass if they play that god-awful song. It'll drive out EVERYONE, causing a major hit to their economy.
