Alcoholics in Amsterdam are getting beer to clean their streets, as a matter of fact, five beers, cigarettes, and 10 euros. They allow the alcoholics to drink two in the morning, one at lunch, and another two after work. Gerrie Holterman, head of the Rainbow Foundation gives the reason in the UPI story, “This group of chronic alcoholics was causing a nuisance in Amsterdam’s Oosterpark: fights, noise, disagreeable comments to women.” So it looks like the purpose is to keep the men occupied and out of trouble. Would this work for Detroit?
