Homeless Hub - Homeless people as victims of social profiling

The topic of Homeless Hub's latest newsletter is the affect social profiling has on the homeless,

Social profiling refers to the use of a person's social status (in this case, their homelessness) by police or security services as a key factor in determining whether or how to enforce laws. The underlying principle of social profiling is that in understanding encounters between the police and homeless persons, it is their status of being homeless, real or presumed, rather than their criminality, that leads to the application of specific measures in a disproportionate manner.
