The title of this post was taken from a comment found at the Missoulian’s website. Who do you think this anonymous asshole is referring to? bank execs who gobble up our tax dollars? private mercenaries who kill with impunity? Health insurers who profit by denying coverage?

Nope, the parasites this commenter thinks should be put into a mass grave is homeless transients.

According to the article, the Poverello Center is looking for overflow space to house the people who won’t be able to stay at the Pov this winter because of firecode limitations.

For some people in this community, it doesn’t matter who these people are. Their stories don’t matter, and their lives don’t matter.

I have something to say to those people: homelessness is here, and it’s not going to go away. In fact, it’s going to get worse.

Why is it going to get worse? Because the wars aren’t going to stop, and the jobs lost overseas aren’t coming back, and state social services will continue to lose funding, and peddling liquor will always be profitable because there will always be a demand to escape to the bottom of a bottle.

It makes me sick Nazi-sounding assholes can make such hateful, terrible comments. Thanks Missoulian for providing a forum where such intelligent people can grapple with complicated issues like homelessness.
