The homeless man who assaulted my pastor needed help. So I wrote a letter to the L.A. Times

Her pastor was physically assaulted by a homeless man outside his church. The pastor wanted to get help for his attacker, but the police put the man back on the street shortly after the assault. Psychiatrist Jura Adams wrote a letter to The Times to highlight the plight of the homeless man — and her minister. (Video by L. A. Times Studios)
