Jesse Loses Everything
The Rev. Jesse Jackson planned to sleep in a bed in a shelter to put the spotlight on homelessness for Martin Luther King’s birthday, but said he will end up sleeping on the floor because all the beds were taken.
Jackson spoke to reporters outside the Pacific Garden Mission on South Canal Street as homeless men lined up outside in the cold waiting to get in.
“I’m not taking a bed,” Jackson said. “Instead I’ll be sleeping on the floor in a sleeping bag because conditions are such that they need every bed.”
