Florida number one in violence against the homeless

Scripps Howard Foundation Wire | News 

Norris Gaynor was sleeping on the streets of Fort Lauderdale when two teens bashed his skull with a baseball bat.

Gaynor, who was 42 when he died from his injuries in 2006, was one of the “bums” the teens set out to attack.

The attack on Gaynor is one of the 1,328 acts of violence against homeless people from 1999 to 2012 by someone who is not homeless, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless.
