BOCA RATON - In a sign of the desperation facing Palm Beach County's poor, hundreds, maybe thousands, descended on the housing authority here Wednesday for a chance to get on a waiting list for subsidized housing.

The wait nearly turned ugly when housing officials told hundreds still in line shortly after 9 a.m. that they had only enough applications left for the disabled. The crowd surged forward toward the entrance, almost crushing mothers with children and people in wheelchairs,




This goes to show how this sluggish economy is having a effect on the poor. This will only continue around the country. Its not hard to imagine things getting worse.

Hundreds of people, mostly mothers who had spent more than eight hours in line, were forced to leave the property at 2333 W. Glades Road by 30 Boca Raton Police officers, including SWAT team members, who walked toward the crowd in unison holding their police shields up about 10:30 a.m.


"Leave or face arrest," police officers shouted at the crowd as they urged them out of the housing authority parking lot.


Shayla Williams, 22, of West Palm Beach, was angered by the police tactics."This place is going to get shot up later," she yelled to officers. "They can't treat us like this."

This is just what the NWO wants!

Now folks there is a nice train right here waiting to take you to a wonderful new housing development that FEMA has been working on for you. No need to push and shove there is plenty of room. Just tag your bags and we will make sure you get them when you arrive.

Lord help me that I never get so blind!!!!
