A Facebook video posted over the weekend by a city alderman showing homeless people arguing with first responders has sparked debate on how to address the growing number of vagrants in downtown Manchester.

“We must tackle this issue as a community,” said Ward 3 Alderman Tim Baines, who filmed and posted the video after calling 911 when two people “passed out” in front of him Saturday afternoon. “There are solutions and people need to feel safe while enjoying our downtown. We need to find the will as a community to stop turning a blind eye.”
