Council Installs 30 Metal Posts To Stop Homeless Guy Sleeping Here, But He Rose Above It!

I think that most people would agree that governments around the world should do more to help the men and women who find themselves sleeping rough. 

After all, we are relieved of thousands of pounds each year – in the form of taxes – to help those who are in need. 

But for one local council in Copenhagen, they felt that the best way to deal with someone who was sleeping rough in the entrance to a run-down store was to install 30 long metal posts of equal height in a bid to dissuade the male from sleeping in one specific spot.

But, as you would expect, it did not work. 

The male in question simply found a hard object that was big enough to sit on the posts, placed it on top of the posts and then put his mattress on top. 

When Neil Hillman uploaded the two photos to social media, I bet that even he did not think that the post would be as popular as it has become. 

The post (no pun intended) has been shared almost 105k times and has attracted nearly 5k comments.

As you would expect, the comments being left both commended the rough sleeper and denounced him. 

But I would have loved to of seen the faces of the council staff who were responsible for the erecting the posts when they spotted the male sleeping in precisely the same spot. 

But what do you think? Let us and our readers know in the comments below.
