FL: Tampa Opens Tent Shelter For Homeless [except registrants] During Coronavirus Pandemic

[floridaactioncommittee.org – 3/30/20]

Even in states of emergency, governments take any opportunity to kick persons required to register as sex offenders.

With a county-wide order for people to stay indoors now in effect, the city of Tampa is establishing a tent city that will allow up to 100 homeless people to shelter in place. The city will pay Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg $120,000 to run a temporary homeless camp for the next 30 days.

The shelter will be open to any homeless person except for registered sex offenders.

This tent shelter in Florida is so discriminatory that it makes the USA and the orgianization so ashamed, if the American or General public only knew about this situation. Of course no one would want to alarm the public today about a sex offender seeking shelter. One would take any other offender or hoeless person.

Talk about the price of tea in china in all this confusion. And one wonders if it saves one life in all this safety factor of a man made saga. Guess thats green card shoping for one
