  • POLICE MOVE HOMELESS

    2007.12.14 - 12:02 AM

    The Victoria City Police, under the command of Mayor Alan Lowe, continue to move homeless people along. The official stance is that Victoria Police will not move sleeping people between 11pm and 6am unless a property owner complains. Many people have been harassed to move along and even given free rides to the city limits. Lack of cooperation can lead to a night in jail but can also lead to bodily assault and even death. According to recent statistics from the ombudsman's office the rate of death in the city cells averages 1 per month, many of those people were homeless when they died in police custody. The youngster in this video were told not to hang around outside the mayor's office in Centennial Square at the same time that the mayor was holding a public open door for citizens who would like to speak with him. First come first serve.
