Denver, CO—Collected through months of discovery, the evidence against Denver exposes a systematic disregard and violations of the rights and dignity of U.S residents in one of the largest homeless class actions in U.S. history.
“They look at you with disdain… instead of a human being with feelings and emotions, you know, wants, needs.”
Exhibit 1, Roy Vincent Browne Deposition.
The purpose of the camping ban and the homeless sweeps was not to help the poor, as officials so often claimed, but to get rid of the unwanted in a growing American city.
“I think the unauthorized camping ordinance has had a positive effect on the community. I think, without it, we would be looking like LA right now.”
Deposition of Bennie Milliner, Executive Director of the Road Home Program—main program designed to serve homeless persons— stating that the purpose of the homeless sweeps was to keep Denver from looking like Los Angeles.
Newly discovered evidence shows that the city used inmates to conduct the homeless sweeps, used flamethrowers to intimidate homeless persons, and after seizing personal property and throwing it in the garbage, held a city-funded barbecue directly in front of the homeless persons who had just been displaced.
Copies of emails and newly unearthed evidence will be provided at the 8/14 press conference.
