London mayor Boris Johnson joined the public on Monday, demanding the removal of what some are calling "anti-homeless" spikes found outside a luxury apartment building in London. The spikes elicited significant attention after a photo of them went viral over the weekend. While many call them a "disgraceful" way to deter the city's homeless from sleeping on the streets, some defended their use.
