When folks demand their "entitlements"

TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - A chaotic scene erupted at the Taylor Human Services Center when the crowd waiting for a Section 8 Housing voucher distribution got out of control.
The center is located at Eureka and Lange Roads. That's between on Eureka, between Beech Daly and Inkster.
Police say thousands of people from all over the area were at the center. Many were homeless, single moms, or disabled.  They were hoping to get help paying for their housing from the government.
"There was elderly, disabled people, pregnant single women. They were here for help, to get their section 8 vouchers.  It just shows you what a desperate need... some were here since yesterday," said Rhianna Rodriguez.
7 Action News is being told there were 1,000 vouchers available and 5,000 people showed up trying to get one.
The crowd had grown overnight as more and more people arrived.  Witnesses say the line stretched for a mile down Lange Road.
Police say, when the time came for the vouchers to be distributed, there was a mad rush for the door.  Officers tried to control the crowd, but couldn't.



Funny thing is, it doesn't even mention the healthy young people amongst all those 'elderly, disabled people, pregnant single women' that were there to get their free shit so it must've been Granny out there battling.
Here in Stanislaus County Kalifornia, they open up Section 8 eligibility rolls every 3-4 years and people start lining up days before the doors open. Days...... They bring their tents and sleeping bags and camp out, looking like those idiots on Black Friday camping outside of stores.

Oh, and the surprising thing about that story above? Taylor has a population of 63,000 and is mostly white.

Funny how the population of Taylor is 74 percent white but the film shows an angry crowd of Obama voters?

Considering I work in the area on a regular basis on Insurance Fraud cases. I wind up in a lot of the Section 8 neighborhoods. A majority of the occupants in Section 8 in Taylor are black. Just a heads up. McKinley Properties of Ann Arbor, MI runs a lot of the 'gated' communities there. Villages of Taylor at the Pond etc...

If they have tents and sleeping bags, WTF do they need section 8 housing for?

Some years back an apartment complex down the street from my house went Section 8; within a couple of months anything in the yard not bolted down or alarmed would be stolen. And the bastards would steal the bolts and alarm if they could.

They also trashed the complex. That crap went on for about two years before the owners sold it. New owners announced 'no Section 8' when they began repairs, and within two months things were MUCH better.

My sympathy for 'people who need the help' went down the toilet.

I ran a route thru Detroit and the burb`s a few year`s ago . Man if you could see that fuckin place you would understand. Even " Whitey " stand`s in line with his fuckin hand out , when he`s to stupid to pack up and move on. You have seen picture`s of Europe after W W II , that`s what it look`s like . So much for the 'The Great One ' , " saving the American auto industry ".
