Riot Breaks Out At Housing Assistance Event In Metro Detroit
CBS Detroit ^ | January 12, 2013 12:50 PM | staff

Posted on 01/14/2013 4:14:18 AM PST by tobyhill

An event designed to help assist Michigan families with housing expenses turned into a chaotic scene after there was a mad rush to collect Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers.

The incident happened Saturday morning at the Wayne County Family Health Services Center on Eureka Road, between Beech Daly and Inkster roads in Taylor — where thousands of people were waiting to get housing vouchers, many who had been waiting outside in the cold since the night before.

Reports say the amount of people who showed up looking for assistance heavily outweighed the number of vouchers to be distributed. As the night was fading away and the sun started to shine, the crowd continued to grow as more and more people arrived. According to reports, only 1,000 vouchers were available for distribution. An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people were in attendance.

Being familiar with Taylor, I’ll say it’s likely that a good number of white trash were mixed in.

Well suprize, surprize, surprize. When there is something for free and there isn’t enough to go around, this is what happens in those impoverised cities.

Detroit USED TO BE a nice city, not anymore.

Here is an example of Socialism's impact in Britain

Dispels the racial aspect of dependency.

It was a really good movie - but gritty.

“When there is something for free and there isn’t enough to go around, this is what happens in those impoverised cities.”

This is just a microcosm of what will happen in the future when other entitlement programs run out. That's why they want your guns, so when people come for what YOU have, you will not be able to defend it or your self......................does that sound paranoid? I'm not so sure any more.

Not paranoia, but reality.

When the ebt cards run dry, the regime will turn those people on those who have prepared. Look up some recent speeches of Van Jones. Even though he was fired from the white hut, he is still close to obama.

Another twist to all this, while the regime is working to disarm us, they are enabling the zetas and sinoloa cartel to operate freely in our country. And they are armed up with a lot heavier weapons than a bushmaster .223.

Not Paranoid at all.

Sooner or later Obama financial crisis will boil over.
Money will be hyper-inflated and worthless, and the entitlement checks will not amout to enough to buy a loaf of bread. When this happens we had better have guns or those with guns will take from us.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

I keep thinking about what happened in South Africa. Taking land and productive farms away from white Africaners that were feeding the nation and producing an exportable national product and giving the land to people who have no idea how to run it.

You’re not paranoid, but if this is a new realization to anyone, you’re late to the party.

So no one had a pic of the riot that they could have used. All they have is some trash littering the area after the event.

Really? Do they really think we buy that?

“We are one nation. We are one people. We will rise and we will fall together. Anyone who doesn’t believe it should come here to Detroit. It’s like the commercial says: This is a city that’s been to heck and back. And while there are still a lot of challenges here, I see a city that’s coming back.”—President Obama, Sept. 5, 2011 Don’t you see? Detroit is coming back. The President has told us so. It must be true.

I’m not without sympathy for people who have so many problems keeping their heads above water that they feel they must seek government handouts; however, the entitlement mentality (the constant “gimme”) just makes me want to puke.

It warmed up in many parts of Michigan late last week. The snow on the ground was pretty much melted off with the sun and temps a little north of 50 degrees F. I’m at my other residence in northern lower Michigan at the present time. A week ago the snowmobiling was great on the snow cover. Today, there is just a brush of snow, and very hard going for the sleds.

Must be that man made global warming you all heard about huh?

Following this riot, they were all planning to go down to Hard Core Pawn on 8 mile and hurl invective and threats at Les Gold and the rest of the staff. No word on whether Governor Gran...er, uh, Snyder plans to kiss their collective asses or not.

“When the lights went out, it went horrible. People started trampling over people, there was a disabled lady that was in a wheelchair and they was trying to knock her over to get in front of her. I mean, just crazy,” she said.

...Pretty much a small-scale version of how the welfare state always ends.

I saw that movie on netflix, I thought it was very good. It’s dark and dreary, but a good reflection on what society has become, and what one pissed off ex-british marine can do heh.

I think it has been unseasonably warm up there lately.
