What I notice is the growing crime committed by the homeless. They used to be invisible and quiet. Now they operate openly as thieves murderers and ruffians.

If you throw the book at copper thieves (and unscrupulous recyclers), they will soon get the message and the thefts will subside. That's IF you throw the book at them.
