Liberal Denver Voters REJECT Measure to Let Homeless Camp Anywhere They Want


Even the normally liberal voters of left-wing Denver are sick and tired of the city allowing homeless people do whatever they want, and voters just rejected a measure that would let the homeless camp where ever they want.

Denver voters rejected the so-called “Right to Survive” measure that would let the homeless go where ever they want to spread their refuse, pestilence, and sewage.

According to Denver’s ABC 7:

As of preliminary results released at 1 a.m. Wednesday, Initiative 300 was headed for defeat with 83 percent of voters saying “no” and 17 percent saying “yes.” Results won’t be certified until later this month.

Since 2012, the current law bans the homeless from using tarps, sleeping bags, and tents in public spaces.

But Initiative 300 would have done away with those strictures.

According to the Denver Post:

I-300 would have allowed people to pitch tents, sleep in cars and use other types of shelter — including blankets — in public spaces. Proponents cast it as a basic human rights measure that will protect people experiencing homelessness, especially at a time when affordable housing in Denver has become increasingly difficult to find.

Supporters of Initiative 300 claimed they were working for the “human rights” of the homeless.

Proponents also raised millions of dollars to push the rules chance to allow the homeless near free rein.

But the campaign to defeat the measure also raised millions. According to ABC, “many local organizations, including the Denver Rescue Mission and other homeless advocacy groups, all voiced opposition to the measure.”

“People want to solve this issue. We’re not saying there isn’t an issue,” said lvina Vasquez, a spokesperson for the anti-300 campaign. “What we learned from talking to people at neighborhood meetings is that people are concerned about this issue, but this isn’t the way to approach it.”
