This article talks about not being able to account for a few hundred homeless. The reason I post it here is because I've talked to a few homeless people locally. I've heard conspiracies from them that homeless are disappearing in other cities too. One person told me that a city in Montana no longer has a homeless shelter. Another person told me that he saw people taken away in trains in Eastern Washington. His thought was that they were either going to FEMA camps or just being killed. One gal spoke to me of people locally disappearing.
The Salt Lake City police chief, Mike Brown, said he had visited parks and the Jordan river, which threads its way to the Great Salt Lake and has homeless camps dotted along its banks, but he hadn’t seen an influx from downtown. Sgt Brandon Shearer has been up in a police helicopter looking for camps and seemed equally perplexed when asked where the people had gone. “I don’t know,” he said. “That’s a good question.”
Advocates, for their part, fear a humanitarian crisis is brewing.
Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen... - Zbigniew Brezhinsky
