Cliffs: For the past decade broke ass people have moved into shitty roadside motels as full-time housing, with the current eviction ban keeping them from getting the boot they have decided to stop paying their rent, in-turn all the Hajeeb motel owners are saying fuck it and abandoning their properties leaving the poors to fend for themselves in the dilapidated roach motels with no running water or electricity

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Rose Jusino was waking up after working the graveyard shift at Taco Bell when a friend knocked on her door at the Star Motel. The electric company trucks were back. The workers were about to shut off the power again.

The 17-year-old slammed her door and cranked the air conditioning as high as it would go, hoping that a final blast of cold air might make the 95-degree day more bearable. She then headed outside to the motel’s overgrown courtyard, a route that took her past piles of maggot-infested food that had been handed out by do-gooders and tossed aside by the motel’s residents. Several dozen of them were gathered by a swimming pool full of fetid brown water, trying to figure out their next move.

The motel’s owner had abandoned the property to its residents back in December, and now the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic was turning an already desperate strip of America — just down the road from Disney World — into something ever more dystopian. The motel’s residents needed to pay the power company $1,500.

The house that hate built.
Around here they are currently honing their tactic of forcible removal due to road work/environmental damage. It's allowing the people who claim to care to act with just as little compassion as anyone else while still patting themselves on the back for doing nothing beyond chasing them from one side of the city to the other and back.
