Fresno attacks, exiles, and neglects those without homes
The primary concern of municipal governments and their agencies is for the protection of property, and not to uphold Human Rights such as a right to shelter and food, which is why those who suffer the stigma of being without a proper address or a home are forced to create their own so-called "illegal" encampments.

Recall Ashley Swearengin [facebook.com/pages/Recall-Ashley-Swearengin/420770738030824]:
The residents of Fresno are fed up with numerous moves that have hurt the city of Fresno.
message from Floyd Harris, Jr.:
I'm proud of everyone who worked on the Recall Ashley Swearengin facebook. Now it's time to remove the Mayor from office. The right wing tea party churches and organizations who live north of Shaw will no longer run South of Shaw like a plantation. We, as people of color who have came threw slavery to work on plantations cannot allow history to repeat it's self again. Fresno has had three (3) Republicans, Mayor Jim
Patterson, Allan Autry, and now Mayor Ashley Swearengin, and they have not remove Darling Packing House from West Fresno, while our seniors citizens and youth are getting sick and dying each day from the dead animals smell. Not to forget that Mayor Ashley Swearengin attacked the Fresno Homeless community and destroyed there homes in the middle of winter, which cost us the Fresno tax payers more court cost. We all know Patch, who stood with us in the middle of the streets protecting his home as well as other homeless people. Today Fresno Unified School Distirct has no African American male school principal while African American youth are droping out of school heading to prison. Once again we have Jerry Dyer Fresno Police shooting black and brown men in the head and in there back while the Mayor Ashley is allowing this happen. Now we deal with Measure Z where Mayor Ashley Swearengin tried to take food off the table of working men and women in our Fresno community. I must say that the time is NOW TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE MAYOR, THE FRESNO CITY COUNCIL, AND THOSE WHO LIVE IN NORTH FRESNO THAT BLACK, BROWN and WHITE WILL COME TOGETHER WITH ALL other ETHNICITY STANDING AS ONE PEOPLE..!! If you stand with me, others will stand with us..!! Stop being scared Fresno community because the answer to our problems sits in our spirit.

Why did the Fresno Police and the local Fresno Government call Black males and the Black community in Fresno a "Terrorist"? The Fresno Police Department does not have the right to be the JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER!
