Cleaning the streets for the sake of our sensibility

Raids, or for the sake of civility, "intervention" or "rescue" by uniformed authorities in Bangkok are applauded by society in general, followed by NGOs who either don't know what to do or harbor prejudice against homeless people and drug-users. This useless cycle which seems to profit those conducting the raids or those who came up with the idea.

Temporary displacement for the marginalized, where they'll be placed in some God-forsaken bootcamp or forgotten detention hole; and in a matter of time, they'll be back on the streets or slums, and most probably in a traumatized state.
