  1. Don’t compliment on stuff you don’t know about. I work in downtown Denver, and all around the metro area. Everywhere smells like fecal matter, and urine. Majority of all the homeless people I meet are severely mentally ill, drug addicts, or both. The homeless cause a lot of violence, I’ve personally seen this violence. People should not allowed to live in drug dens and shanty houses in downtown when it’s expensive to live there. I’ve gotten plenty of jobs since I moved here, even a couple I didn’t like so much after losing work during covid. Majority of these people don’t want legitimate help or work.I mean even if I was homeless I would work for an Amazon and camp near by.

  2. This is so misleading. The Denver Mayor….Hancock has been an enemy of the homeless. He was unsuccessful in providing shelter for 4,000 citizens during the PANDEMIC. The 2 campsites were hard fought for by the community of homeless organizations. Hancock tries every week to sweep the homeless camps every week sending them in circles. Once he gave DPD hotel vouchers to give the homeless and the motels and hotels were already full and could take no extra people because of covid. Some motels and hotels did not recognize or accept these City issued vouchers. NBC news come talk to the people who are fighting to get more secure campsites for the homeless citizens.

  3. Hey guys im trying to start a program that allows sober and responsible homeless people who are homeless due to lay offs from the pandemic or unforeseeable circumstances be able to clean and stay in bank owned run down property's till their sold get a commission and move on to the next property helping to decrease homelessness , while maintaining property value from cleaning ugly houses if you like please support

  4. America loves touting Christian values, but we’ll spend a dollar to dollar to drop a bomb on innocent civilians overseas before we spend a dime to help our people here at home.

    At least Denver is doing something about this travesty.

  5. Happy, that I don't live in the Greatest and Richest Country in the world! Happy that I don't live in that Shining City on the Hill! Probably shining from the lights in those tents for the homeless. Shame, shame on you, fake Christian nation.

  6. I'm for people helping out and everything but that hippie chick looks like a straight-up hippie man I'm talkin straight up Creedence Clearwater Revival I'm talkin Jimi Hendrix I'm talking where's my freaking yamaka

  7. I'm all four people helping people but the second Republicans get in power they are going to burn that complex to the ground. They're going to Burn It to the Ground.
