It’s a disgrace that people are driven to live like this when their governments encourage the rich to get richer and cut off aid to the poor on top of making the middle class even poorer.
During a routine crime investigation, Kansas City police discovered a series of underground dirt tunnels being used by the city’s homeless. Local affiliate KMBC was on hand for the discovery when newscasters accompanied Kansas City Police Officer Jason Cooley, who was leading an investigation of stolen copper wiring from a nearby grain mill. While checking on the seemingly ordinary homeless campsites, Cooley discovered a series of tunnels that went several feet under the earth and stretched nearly 25 feet. “It was kind of in a little hill and probably four feet beneath the surface,” Cooley told the Kansas City Star.
