Aberdeen Mayor Finds Way To Get Homeless Out Of Aberdeen! Make It A Crime To Be Homeless In Aberdeen!

March 31, 2017

Aberdeen (Md) Councilwoman Sandra Landbeck joined the Aberdeen Tea Party (Mayor Pat  McGrady and Steven Goodin) to co-sponsor a town ordinance to make living in a homeless tent  in Aberdeen a crime.  The ordinance will impose a $50 fine on anyone living in a tent for more than 24 hours within the town borders.

The “Handcuff the Homeless” Bill is meant to create an incentive for the homeless to get out of Aberdeen. Dwelling in a tent outside of Aberdeen allows the Aberdeen homeless problem to become a Harford Couty problem.

Ciuncilwoman Landbeck is quoted in the Republican Aegis/Sun ; “Now we’re unable lawfully to go in and say ‘You need to move’.This ordinance will give us that. We can say , ‘You can find someplace else, you just cant stay here.”

Landbeck went on to say :“It gives us authority to TREAT THE PROBLEM rather than ENABLE THE PROBLEM.”

Criminalizing the homeless is Landbeck and McGrady’s idea of “treating the problem”.

Ironicly the Police Chief Henry Trabert says  “We dont expect to get any real fines out of these people. We know they don’t have money. And we don’t to see them incarcerated, that’s not the idea”

What the hell is  the idea then. McGrady and Landbeck want to criminalize the problem and kick the problem out of town limits. Trabert, the Sociologist-Cop,  wants to solve it as a community social economic problem. “Its our duty to make sure we take care of the people who cant take care of themselves.”

If the illegitimately  appointed Councilman Steve Goodin joins McGrady-Landbeck in supporting the ordinance then the measure becomes law  unless the State or ACLU declares it unconstitutional. Goodin , a McGrady  crony,was chosen by McGrady for this mission . McGrady  solved the election tie-vote last year  by ignoring  the 699 votes that Stephen Smith recieved and instead appointed Goodin to the council  having recieved no votes. If Smith had been rightly  allowed in the tie-vote runoff McGrady would not have enough  corrupt votes to push such an ignorant inhumane measure.

If you don’t stop corruption when it starts it just spreads like cancer..

Did Aberdeen Police Last December Cut Up The Tents Of The Homeless in Tent City? And Did the Local Media Cover The Crime Up? “Being Homeless Is Not A Crime !” But Cops Destroying Homeless Tents Is A Crime!

November 27, 2016

Reliable social services sources say that  members of the Aberdeen Police Dept acted like lawless marauders last winter destroying the personal property of the homeless in Aberdeen’s Tent City. The sources say that Aberdeen police  cut the homeless tents up and destroyed them to scare them off. Scare them off as in creating terror. If this is true ,were the police involved  rogue cops or were they carrying out the orders of police or political leaders? If this is true, were the involved cops investigated and properly reprimanded or fired?

Being homeless is not a  crime . But destroying the personal property of the homeless is a crime .

The same criminal act occurred in St. Petersburg, Fla in 2012 (see Youtube clip) It was done with authority of police leaders.

The local press did not report this crime in Aberdeen because the only crime they report comes from the police handout. It appears the press knew about the crime but did not investigate it. It appears they cooperated in a cover up of police misbehavior.

In Florida the excuse for destroying homeless tents was that  they were a “fire and safety  hazard”. If they were a “hazard” that does not excuse police destroying personal property of the homeless. That’s not police procedure. Its a criminal misbehavior. If the homeless are “trespassing” the proper procedure is to notify with a citation and request they leave. Police do not have a right to evict someone by destroying there property. If the police do destroy homeless tents, it is  a form of domestic terrorism. The police are suppose to serve and protect.

“Being homeless is not a crime”. But destroying homeless tents is a crime.
