(detroit.cbslocal.com)-DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan says Detroit police are removing homeless people from the popular Greektown entertainment district downtown and dropping them off miles away — sometimes outside the city.
“DPD’s practice of essentially kidnapping homeless people and abandoning them miles away from the neighborhoods they know – with no means for a safe return — is inhumane, callous and illegal,” said Sarah Mehta, ACLU of Michigan staff attorney. “The city’s desire to hide painful reminders of our economic struggles cannot justify discriminating against the poor, banishing them from their city, and endangering their lives. A person who has lost his home has not lost his right to be treated with dignity.”
So this is OUR America? And I do mean OUR'S!

Why would anyone be homeless in Detroit? It's a city full of vacant houses. Just pick one and squat. The real truth is they are probably mentally ill.

Actually, this sounds more like Cloward-Piven Strategy.
Overload the system. Place the onus on government until the only recourse is to have government take over everything.
People should be helping people. It shouldn't have to be up to government. We, the people have failed in helping our neighbors.
