Emily C.: What can I do to help Damion?

Damion S.: I would pray first. But look for an American Red cross. Or maybe Samaritan’s purse. I’m going to donate blood this week. Maybe tomorrow.

Charlie C.: No red cross.

NYC Musician Uses His Time and Talent to Illustrate True Compassion as a Voluntary Endeavor

Musician in NYC Performs Next To Homeless People So They Get More Cash:

My Commentary: Real compassion is voluntary…

But, hey, just quietly and passively pay those compulsory taxes to let the State “take care of” the homeless (AKA police harassment, corrupt shelter systems, vagrancy laws, destruction of property, fines, jails)!

Keep your soft, pink hands “clean,” my friends!

For just a taste of the truth about homelessness in NYC, and how the State represents the worse enemy to some of the most vulnerable members of our society, watch the movie, “The Saint of Fort Washington.”

But, Without Government, Who Would “Take Care” of the Homeless?

Update: Department Of Homelessness Renews Effort To Dismantle Tent Encampments Citywide:

(Jack Morse) The newly created Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing is set to begin the process of removing every single homeless encampment in the city — tent by tent. CBS 5 reports that the department’s deputy director, Sam Dodge, laid out this goal in conversation with the channel at the same time as SFPD Northern Station Captain John Jaimerena was telling Hoodline that his officers have no plans to take down encampments as it isn’t illegal to be homeless.

“We’ve seen an increase in encampments in the Mission district between 14th street and 19th street and South Van Ness and Harrison,” Dodge told CBS 5. “To try to go person by person, offer everyone at least shelter so that we can resolve an encampment.”

When pressed by CBS 5 if to “resolve an encampment” meant “taking them down,” Dodge replied, “yeah, that’s right.”

Police Having People Evicted from Homes for Small Amount of Marijuana:
http://sprout.news/evicted-small-amount-marijuana/

() Police in Washington DC are taking advantage of nuisance abatement laws to target renters and homeowners for possession of tiny amounts of cannabis.

Rajuawn Middleton’s son moved out of her home years earlier, but that did not stop police in the nations capital from raiding her home in a search for guns they allege he was harboring. In fact, in the end, the son was never charged with any crime related to the allegations.

During the raid in March 2014, however, a single joint was found in her possession. As a result she was eventually forced to move out of her home.

My Commentary: And, once these families are disenfranchised, and forced into homelessness by the State, most will require government “assistance” to get by…

“Government: breaks your leg, offers you a crutch, then says, ‘See, if it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t be able to walk’.”
