'Likely a Death Sentence': Officials Fear Cold Weather Is Greater Risk for Homeless than Virus

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For weeks after he opened a daytime shelter for the homeless, Jae Bennett was fairly rigid about the building's 37-person capacity. The last thing he wanted was for a lapse in social distancing to cause the deadly coronavirus to spread among a population in which many people were in frail health.

The Mayor and Rex should be down at the convention center managing the place.

Where is the health department? If it was a business they would be shutting it down.

No housing is affordable if you are too lazy to get a job!

They are going to have to burn the building when this is over.

The smell in that place would probably knock a buzzard off a shit wagon or Chimpy off his mom which is pretty much the same thing.

TOP PHOTO -- HOMELESS CONVENTION

The KCMO Homeless Union has filed suit against Mayor Lucas and the City, claiming gross negligence and intentional misconduct, for luring their members into a super-spreader event. The City Legal Department is expected to punt and payout millions in damages!!!

Lock the door... turn on the gas jets. Rinse and repeat tomorrow night.

This is a sad situation, I'm just wondering if the health department is going to have any say over this...
The flu/covid are going to be running rampant! Do they even have restrooms to accommodate this many people? I mean, there's a lot of things that raise concern.

Give them one way tickets to Florida.

Has security been figured out down there or do they still have the Black Panther group? Good work otherwise to give these folks a shelter from the storm, it’s brutal outside.

They are going to have to remodel after this, but maybe that was the plan all along?

Should of used the Arrowhead Stadium suites since that is tax funded as well.

Yep Silvestor, they sho did. Even called me to "bring it to my attention". But, all it took for even the average remodeler to say hell no was a quick drive through the surrounding neighborhood.
