Michael McConnell Posts Videos of San Diego “Encampment Sweeps” Which Puts Homeless Tents and Belongings Into Garbage Trucks
In a stunning series of videos, Michael McConnell has documented the scores of “Encampment Sweeps” where San Diego cops, security guards, and sanitation workers raid various areas of the city and grab the private property of the city’s poor homeless folks and send it to the garbage dump. In video after video, these heartless raiders destroy what little is left for a poor homeless person living on the street in a tent or cardboard house. This, of course, does nothing at all to work towards a solution to homeless issues, it just further pounds these poor folks into further despair.
The so-called “sweeps” are the latest tool that cities across America are using to make poverty a criminal offense. Arresting homeless folks for sleeping in a tent and looting all their belongings is a reflection of the dissolving and breakdown of our civil society. It is the tip of the iceberg of the new class war that is pitting the rich against the poor. The massive shipment of jobs to China and the far east has led to the shuttering of thousands of factories across the country, pushing former middle class folks out of their homes and into the streets.
What has become obvious is that the rich class is now in a frenzy of cruelty. These “sweeps”, now taking place in most cities, is but the first round of the harsh things to come. Some cities are even moving homeless folks out to the suburbs into “camps” and they are forbidden, under threat of arrest, to return to the city. These are the forerunners of Nazi-style concentration camps that murdered millions in Europe during World War 2. The irony is that many of the homeless men are themselves veterans of the various ongoing wars that the U.S. is waging around the world. Returning home from service, often with physical and mental disabilities, they end up on the streets. Now their paltry belongings are being seized, their tents thrown into garbage trucks. It is a sad end to the American dream.
