Bus riders have long complained about homeless turning those shelters into their bedrooms or worse bathrooms. Last week, Honolulu Mayor Kick Caldwell signed a ban on sleeping at bus stops into law. Kauai County enacted a similar ban that took effect last week. 

ACLU Hawaii's Legal Director Mateo Caballero stopped by to talk to Catherine Cruz on The Conversation to talk about the organization's position on the bans.
