Despite the recent uproar over the installation of 'anti-homeless' spikes located in cities in the UK and Canada, concrete or metal spikes are only the tip of the iceberg in a disturbing trend of innovative techniques designed to 'repel' the homeless.
Once the photos of 'anti-homeless spikes' began circulating on Twitter, the outrage was fuelled with each successive favourite and retweet. The styles of the anti-homeless 'spikes' varied from photo to photo, ranging from pointed pieces of concrete to spiked pieces of metal protruding dangerously from the ground.
