TX: Neighbors: Sex offenders may follow proposed Good Samaritan homeless shelter to area

[ – 11/29/19]

There was a time when Abel Palacious found himself homeless. Now, he lives across the street from the old Lamar Elementary School.

The school, at the corner of Morris and 19th streets, could be converted into the largest homeless shelter in Corpus Christi. It would house 308 beds as the new location for the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission.

The organization served Palacious when he was homeless.

Even so, he said he can’t support the shelter’s proposed location because registered sex offenders are allowed to stay at the Good Samaritan. He has four kids aged 11, 14, 15 and 20, and numerous grandchildren.

I don’t know Abel. You talk about being homeless at one time and the shelter served your purpose, but you don’t want others just like you, who made bad choices in their lives, to stay at the shelter. Frankly Abel, you never had a pot to piss in, so what gives you the right to judge other people? You should have been worried about taking care of those 4 children you have instead of running around homeless and then later wanting to pull the welcome mat from others who need the same assistance.

“He has four kids aged 11, 14, 15 and 20, and numerous grandchildren.” Really?

So his 14,15, and 20 year-olds have numerous children?

Probably more incompetent reporting, like “99% of sex offenders reoffend”….

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
