- People are outraged by the cruelty of the art gallery owner — casually leaning on a railing while hosing down the woman — especially given the freezing temperatures.

In a recent shocking video that has gone viral on social media, Collier Gwin, the owner of the art gallery Foster-Gwin Art and Antiques in San Francisco, was seen using a hose to spray water on a homeless woman in order to force her to leave the area.
The incident, captured by another business owner, has sparked widespread condemnation and calls for legal action against the art gallery owner.
Critics have pointed out the inhumanity and cruelty of the owner’s actions, particularly in light of the freezing temperatures.
They have also highlighted the systemic issues at play, including the failure of the police and government to address homelessness and poverty.
Rather than working to provide adequate housing and support for those in need, society continues to criminalize and punish homelessness and treat it as a personal failure.
It is clear that addressing the root causes of homelessness and poverty, through policies such as universal basic income and affordable housing initiatives, is crucial in preventing similar incidents and truly addressing the ongoing homelessness crisis.
This incident highlights the systemic issues of classism and economic inequality that exist within our society, where those with financial power can use it to further oppress those who lack it.
