There has to be a better way to deal with homless people then this. Why didn't someone say, let's stop @$500K (if not sooner), and just buy this guy a place to stay, food to eat, and a few years worth of health insurance, including if necessary, mental care? I garantee something like that could have been done for $250K if not less...Oh wait $250K is still too much for some people here, they'd rather make our kids pay the $1million, with interest.

Considering the ridiculous cost of healthcare, I'm not surprised this cost 1 million dollars.
What did they do, give the guy a couple of asprin after an ambulance ride to a detox center?
The truely outrageous aspect of this is how little it takes to rack up 1 million in bills through health care. What is less significant to me is the fact that they spent 1 million dollars to try and fix up a homeless person -- like this person is less worthy of help than someone else, just because they're homeless.
