<P><FONT face="Arial Black, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif">Hi guys,</FONT></P>
<P>&nbsp;</P>
<P><FONT face="Arial Black, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif">&gt;Do police in your country murder homeless people? </FONT></P>
<P><FONT face="Arial Black, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif">&nbsp; Yes, regularly.</FONT></P>
<DIV></DIV>
<P><FONT face="Arial Black, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif">&gt;If so, are they ever tried, convicted and sentenced? </FONT></P>
<P><FONT face="Arial Black, Geneva, Arial, Sans-serif">&nbsp; No, or very rarely. We have a case ongoing right now where four cops kicked a homeless man to death for apparently no reason. Yesterday was the six month anniversary. We are hoping they get convicted. We are fighting a bill that came in recently called "The Safe Streets Act". It was brought in to ostensibly fight crime in "high crime areas". But we see it as a license to harrass or, in some cases, kill homeless people. We are living in a police state that masquerades as a democracy. Pray that your city never ends up like ours, or Guatemala. </FONT></P>
