5453Law Suit for Human Scale Access.
- Jan 30, 2003In my own city, Austin, by court ruling, transients can no longer be
awakened from sleep in public space except to allow space for walkers,
and other traffic. My unstudied understanding of this ruling is that
it is based most on the idea that sleeping is a natural and
expected part of human life, unlike phones, which is the basis for not
being allowed to deduct ones phone bill from your tax base.
So i was thinking I would look into filing a suit, with a like minded
attorney which I already have acquantance of a few of in austin, that
the City, State and Federal governments by their laws and ac tions
have deprived me of my right to pursue my happiness by a msot natural
and expected manner -- by walking.
They have forced me to purchase a rather expensive car, and only at
great personal effort and threat to my safety have I been able to
change to the statistically rare mode of bicycling. This mode change
limits my range , hence my ability to pursue my happiness, or better,
to live my life. Walking limits my range so much I would have to live
on top of the food didtribution points, which in the non-mixed use
zoning, would have to be without a home. And although one is allowed
to sleep anywhere by the resent court rulings, one is not allowed to
camp in public spaces. This is considered to be a home. So to be a
walker, I must by current law be either a street person, or be wealthy
enough to afford New York or San Fransico.
I have to hurry off, bt be=fore I bother an attorney with this and
with the statement that, hey I can't afford this but I must do this if
possible, please let me know if it worth our trouble.
I am serious.
