Denver Lawmakers Attempt to BAN Homelessness… Homeless Camping

THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - April 30, 2012

How sad is this? Denver officials are attempting to ban homelessness! How exactly do you ban being homeless? Very shocking to consider that this city would take such a cold hearted stance especially when so many Americans are down on their luck and otherwise suffering on the financial front.

The Denver City Council chamber was overflowing with folks waiting for a chance to speak about the proposal to ban homeless camping in the city.

If Denver authorities do ban homeless camping, then what? Where do the homeless go? Do they simply disappear as banned? Will they be arrested? for being homeless? Will they then become wards of the court? entrusted to a very broken justice system?
