Christmas In Rochester

So, Rochester had a large tent city.  This past Christmas, the city passed out hotel vouchers to many living in the homeless tent city, so to spend the Holidays off the streets.  When most of the homeless were away from their tents, the mayor sent in bulldozers and leveled the camp, all without warning. 

If this doesn’t remind us of Jesus’s commandment to treat homeless people like shit, then nothing does.  video clearly shows homeless people’s possessions being destroyed, all while a city official is saying that their belongings are being saved so to be claimed at a later date.  It’s so sad that this did not gain more media attention when it happened.
