"This Is A Present From The Homeless": Watch This Fed Up CEO Dump Human Feces Outside City Hall
On Monday, Jon Caldara, who is the CEO of the Independence Institute, a libertarian think tank based in Denver, took human feces that he cleaned up outside his business and placed it on the steps of city hall.
“Here is – oh, my God – human feces that I’ve cleaned up,” Caldera told CBS4. “This is a present from the homeless to the people who have kept this homeless problem going.”
Caldera said that at least twice a week security cameras catch a homeless person defecating outside his business or worse.
If the City is forcing business owners to have to deal with this crap, then so should city officials.
"We have to clean up vomit and urine and syringes and used condoms and feces. We didn't cause the homeless problem in Denver but we have [to] clean up after it," Caldara said.
He added, "This is not an affordable housing crisis. This is a drug crisis, this is a mental health crisis, and this is a crisis of law. That these people who need help will never get help if they are not brought to jail where they are forced to get some help."
Which, he is absolutely correct about. No one who is sober and 'just can't catch a break' defecates in front of businesses like that.
Caldara told KDVR-TV that he has talked to the mayor, but said he still wants the city to do more.
"Yes, I've talked to the mayor. He's a great guy; I wish him all the best," Caldara said. "And I understand that he is trying a new technique of housing first, but I also want him to enforce the laws."
Caldara said he wants the City to enforce an anti-camping ordinance.
“Let’s look at the numbers. If there are 5,000 homeless people here — and close to a million people who live and work in the Denver area — those million people also deserve to work in a clean, safe place,” Caldara said.
But the mayor’s office has responded to the issue as they told KDVR in response to the poop-dumping scene, city officials are placing restrooms and trash cans near homeless camps.
"Next time you clean it up, drop it off here. Drop it off at city hall as an act of civil disobedience to ask them, to demand of them to address the problem," Caldara said.
This news comes after reports that the city’s growing homeless population has turned the sidewalk at 23rd and Champa streets into an encampment that features a pop-up bar and rentable prostitution tents.
But adding more restrooms and trash cans is really going to fix the fact the city officials have turned parts of Denver into a scene of the Walking Dead.
The Common Sense Institute estimates that total budgeted homelessness spending in Denver will grow from $393.2 million in 2021 to $545.3 million in 2023 (38.7%) and total $1.45 billion over those three years.
The mayor also has a goal through the end of this year, at a cost of nearly $49 million, to move over 1,000 people into converted hotels and a network of micro communities.
City officials keep throwing money at the problem and only seem to be making it worse. Obviously, what they are doing is not working.
Instead of burning through cash, maybe it is time for progressives in Denver try and enforce some laws. How about we give that a try and see what happens.
