Evicted Marietta Homeless man froze to death

A homeless man given eviction notices by a heartless City of Marietta has frozen to death in the sub freezing weather we had this week.   Dominic was one of our many homeless friends.   Sadly Now dead. 

The city has taken the trouble to cut up the tents and pile sleeping bags and all the lifelong remaining possessions in garbage trucks to be hauled away.   There is video and as soon as I find the right software, I’ll post it.   The local channel 2 WSB ran shots showing a few of the homeless camps with police cutting up a tent full of belongings.

The Mayor Dunaway of the City That Doesn’t Care (aka Marietta, Georgia) has achieved a reduction in the homeless count the hard way.   Poor Dominic.  The Mayor and Council sentenced him to death without cause.  The MPD were the executioners.

Dominic had holed up behind a liquor store and died fleeing the City With No Heart. 

Shame on Marietta.  They were warned that this would happen and refused to delay until better weather came along.  Unfortunately this is likely only the first of many.

Shame Marietta!

Rest in Peace Dominic

may God give you peace

  2. I am ashamed to live in a county and a city that has such low regard for human life and dignity. Instead of seeking ways to shelter the homeless and discovering what issues are CAUSING homelessness, Marietta simply uproots them from whatever meager protection they had, forcing them to wander the sub-freezing streets to freeze to DEATH. I wonder how many of those responsible consider themselves to be people of faith? And if you consider yourself to be a follower of Jesus, how can you read the following passage without hanging your head in total shame?

    Matthew 25:41-45 (The Message)
    “Then he will turn to the ‘goats,’ the ones on his left, and say, ‘Get out, worthless goats! You’re good for nothing but the fires of hell. And why? Because—

    I was hungry and you gave me no meal,
    I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
    I was homeless and you gave me no bed,
    I was shivering and you gave me no clothes,
    Sick and in prison, and you never visited.’

    “Then those ‘goats’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or homeless or shivering or sick or in prison and didn’t help?’

    “He will answer them, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you failed to do one of these things to someone who was being overlooked or ignored, that was me—you failed to do it to me.’

    YOU DID IT TO JESUS. City of Marietta Leaders, dwell on that as you sleep in your warm beds tonight…

  3. I’m wondering if a negligence/wrongful death suit could be brought against our heartless city…

  4. I’m not going to be able to post the Channel 2 clip. WSB said no way! At least not free. They suggest $1500 for the 20 second clip.

    Also, I’m told that the victim’s full name was Domenic Capone. and that he was found on a trail behind the liquor store, not huddled behind it as was first reported. The city places some importance on that distinction.

    Our homeless friends knew him as a “compassionate and giving man”.

    Dominic had been released from the hospital about a month prior, released to the streets in late December a few blocks from MUST in the area where the evictions took place. December is not a good time to be released from the hospital with no home to go to.

    The homeless in the area received notice to vacate their camps in the previous week with a firm date of Wednesday. Dominic Capone died several miles away, on Tuesday morning, apparently having left the camp under threat of eviciton the following day. No one but God can say why he died, but a forced march in subfreezing weather could not help.

    Dominic Capone, may God give you Peace,

    Oldtimer

  5. I was wondering why they keep on expanding these programs with bloated overhead and have 90-100 % failure rates while the homeless are still homeless. I was talking to a homeless man that was a veteran and he said he had been through 7 alcohol programs. He said the only reason he had an alcohol problem was because they said he did. “I have never had a drinking problem. I told them I’m not interested in sobiety for life because there is no problem.” I see him daily and he is not drunk. So if you refuse to be a sobriety person you automatically have alcohol addiction. I see why this is getting out of control.

  6. I suspect that treatment programs bring additional fundings at little or no cost to the provider. Set up a class/group counseling session and it matters little if there are 8 or 28 to the cost of the class, but the more enrolled the higher the funding or the higher next years grant will be. So there is pressure to enroll as many as possible on the flimsiest of excuses.

    A homeless man told me today that he had admitted to one drink in the past year during an interview and was then required to enter into a lengthy alcohol treatment program.

  7. Sad indeed. Just as sad as the 93 year who froze to death in his home in Michigan. The power company turned off his power for non payment without even calling him. When his neighbors found him, he was frozen to death. They also found the bill with $1000 paper clipped to it where he intended to pay the bill. This really saddens me to know that I live in a world like this. And not to mention that he was a WWII vet.

  8. You guys sound like a bunch of communists to me.
