It’s been almost a month since the people who live in a homeless encampment under the JFX in Baltimore learned the city was planning to force them out. They sought help, but were still living in tents until yesterday when the last of them began moving out. For four years, Richard Martin, 62, has been living outside, across from the city jail, in a tent next to a highway ramp. Last night, his tent and those of his neighbors were surrounded by puddles and mud.
“I don’t wanna come back to this dump.”
