Kansas City police, a local charity and other city departments on Friday cleared out and filled in a complex of elaborate tunnels and holes at a homeless camp near the East Bottoms.

A tunnel entrance at the homeless camp in northeast Kansas City. “One of the tunnels probably went 20 to 25 feet underground towards the back and veered off in another direction about six feet or so, and there was some bedding and some candles,” said Officer Jason Cooley, community interaction officer for the East Patrol. “It was kind of in a little hill and probably four feet beneath the surface.”

They were on The Kings land. They should count themselves luck they weren’t drawn and quartered.

If this happened with a Republican in the White House this would be the top story and outrage would be pouring in.

Mean while the U.S. Gov provides billions to enemy foreign countries, while allowing tens of millions of foreign criminals to invade our homeland. All this while government hands out prizes, incentives, free health care and various other rewards to millions of illegals, all on the backs of the foolish tax payers.

Northeast Kansas City is filled with natural limestone caves, chambers and tunnels. Closely accross the river, they have been turned into storage facilities and trucking centers.

This article gives the impression the homeless were digging tunnels when in all likelihood, they just are occupiers.

Correct. This reminds me of a scene from “They Live”.

I thought they loved the homeless, so they can increase the welfare ranks?

In ‘82 I drove a 24-ft truck inside a set of tunnels near 31st street in KC. Pretty amazing place.

You look at the address then drive into this huge parking lot and think “Where’s the building?” Then you see a small guard shack.

I think Lamar Hunt is the guy who say a use for all those tunnels.

OMG, my mother who lives abroad sent me photos of Homeless Tent Cities in US after the 2008 crash. As evidence of foreign coverage on how bad Bush and Evil Republican were.

Hope and Change, + part two. Now we have Obama erasing the ‘underground homeless camp’. Evidence destroyed, problem solved.

Was looking for that clip where they destroyed the camp where the poor people were living in “They Live”.

Funny pic. Reality aside, that is.

Park University in north west KC mines lime stone and has underground storage centers for business customers, a third of the Campus including the University Library is underground! Pretty cool.

I wonder how warm and dry it was down there — after all it is Kansas City.
