About the homeless guy: simply speaking, the reason why he was assaulted was the reason why Robert Pickton got away with killing so many women in the Downtown Eastside for so long. If you're marginalized, you count less in the eyes of the law.

(The Downtown Eastside is Vancouver's poorest neighbourhood and the women that were murdered were prostitutes and drug addicts.)

I saw one or two DaVinci's Inquest episodes like that.

It's really, really difficult to maintain the appearance of not being marginalised (when you are) - and if/when you are "seen through", suddenly you lose vastly more credibility - simply for trying to preserve your dignity, you come off looking like a pathetic liar or cheat

plus, people who are marginalised are often trapped in fight-or-flight mode, making them seem weird & shifty to comfortably normal people

it's so sad
