The ACLU's Howard Simon said it's great that the folks living at the bridge will soon get homes, but questions whether this will solve the overall problem. "It's like dealing with the symptoms and not the cause," he said. "It's only a matter of time before there will be another shantytown." Rigoberto Gonzalez, a 57-year-old who served 16 years in prison on multiple child rape and molestation charges, shrugs when asked where the state should send him. He's been living in a tent under the bridge since he was released in May, and is aided with food and water from friends. Gonzalez has no family - they are all in Cuba - and says he can't work because his green card was taken away when he went to prison. "If the government pays for an apartment, I'll go," said Gonzalez, in Spanish. "I would prefer to work and pay for an apartment myself. All I ask is that they treat us like people, not animals." He adds that if he were given the option to return to Cuba - a country he left in 1980 - then he would go back. "In Cuba, there are human rights."

Doesnt anyone other than me find the above article insane..send his criminal ass back to Cuba what the hell are we waiting for?

Hmmm, let's see....

He leaves Cuba, goes to America, creates multiple victims, gets housed, clothed, fed and contained on America's tax dollar for 16 years and then says he believes he has more "human rights" in Cuba?

Fine send him back there. In fact, send ALL the offenders under the bridge to Cuba as far as I'm concerned.

Can you even begin to believe this shit?

It's seriously hard to believe. But there it is.

I was very happy to hear on the victim-bashing podcast the other night, that one of the offenders under the bridge admitted that many of them are illegals.

It was also interesting to hear them whine and cry that Mr. Book was finding housing for them. See? They don't think he's doing it right, they think he should also PAY for their housing.

....and their utilities, and their transportation and their food.
