Just when you think you have seen it all....
Police swooped on the homeless, grabbing sleeping bags and food parcels donated by the public, in co-ordinated raids around the borough. Adam
Jaskowiak was one of the men targeted and said he pleaded with police to be able to keep his things but was ignored. He was sleeping with eight other
people finding shelter for the night in the former Ilford Baths in High Road, Ilford. All of their belongings were bundled into a police car leaving
the men, one in his 60s, stunned. A police chief told the Recorder the operation was carried out to “reduce the negative impact of rough
sleepers”. But Mr Jaskowiak, 34, said: “They were just taking the sleeping bags and chucking out everything. I asked to keep it and the food, but
they said ‘no’.
Serve & Protect my arse.
Clearly this only applies to those that have money.
I would like to know how this isn't considered "theft".
Have a good weekend all. (Unless you're homeless, otherwise hide your stuff from the po-po!)
