    Thats horribly sad that politicians displacing people was what got them elected. Not much has changed in this valley. Police are still forcing the less fortunate out of the only shelter they have . Its sad that we haven’t evolved as a community and continue to make it a us vs. them issue instead of making sure our species are taken care of.
