Homeless Woman Killed by Careless Workers

A careless road crew killed a homeless woman while attempting to clear away a homeless camp. 

Remember, life in America is a paid privilege, not a right.  You have no grounds to be anywhere unless you can pay for a place to be, whether temporary or permanent.  And people who want you gone can't be arsed to make sure you are, in fact, gone before they destroy your place.

I will say that I support the workers' grievance that they should not be assigned to remove homeless camps since that is not in their job description nor are they trained for it.  Making sure a place is really empty before you tear it up is a basic safety precaution, though.  Checking boxes for occupants or potentially hazardous items is important.
