Why would you destroy a motel for no reason?
Is it because “homelessness” is really just a codeword for “mentally ill”?
A city in Wyoming has been overrun with an unprecedented homeless population that’s destroyed a vacant motel and has left hundreds of pounds of feces across the area, according to its mayor.
Mayor Bruce Knell detailed the destructive behavior of roughly 200 homeless people in Casper, WY who have been creating a “mess” throughout the streets and parks, as well as a closed motel where squatters left millions in property damage.
“They destroyed everything,” he told Cowboy State Daily. “It’s horrible.”
Homeless people who squatted at the Econo Lodge motel caused more damage than the flooding that initially closed the business down, Knell reportedly said.
The property was condemned by the city and the bank that owns the foreclosed business boarded it up.
“It was inhabitable, and it was unsafe,” Knell told Cowboy State Daily.
Other homeless people are squatting in other abandoned properties in Casper that don’t have water or electricity.
“It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen,” Knell said. “It’s third-world country stuff happening in Casper, Wyoming.”
“We know very well we cannot litigate our way or arrest our way out of the problem, but our police need some teeth to start dealing with the squatting,” he also told the news outlet.
“They’re just causing so many problems.”
Meanwhile, city staff has been forced to scoop up about 500 pounds of human feces in Casper’s downtown, where many homeless people loiter, the news outlet reported.
It seems like these people are really no society’s problem?
The government should put them in institutions, perhaps?
Like they used to do?
