Anger over Las Vegas ban on sleeping in streets

Anger over Las Vegas ban on sleeping in streetsFaced with a growing number of homeless people, Las Vegas has passed a controversial law that bans sleeping on the street and imposes punishments of a $ 1,000 fine and six months in prison. Sleeping on the streets of the gambling hub will only be illegal in downtown Las Vegas and residential areas — not the famous casino “Strip,” which comes under a different jurisdiction. It will not apply when homeless shelters are full.
