“Officers came and woke me up at about six in the morning and told me I was under arrest for illegal lodging and encroachment”

As Trekkies and storm troopers alike, plan to descend upon San Diego for the annual Comic-con gathering, police are doing some street sweeping, according to homeless advocates.

The SDPD claim that they are conducting outreach and getting beds and meals to those in the worse condition, however, the word and evidence on the street says otherwise.

James Loften, a homeless man in San Diego was forcefully removed and arrested for simply sleeping on 15th street. He was also told that he can no longer be on that street anymore.

“Officers came and woke me up at about six in the morning and told me I was under arrest for illegal lodging and encroachment,” he told 10 News. “I’m like, ‘But all I did was go to sleep.'”

Loften showed 10News the ticket along with the stay-away order for the street he received from San Diego police, right before he says he was carted off to jail.

He was not the only homeless person complaining they have been to lockup recently.

David Ross, also known as Water-man, for handing out water and blankets to the homeless, says police are rounding up homeless people to make way for the cities largest event, Comic-con.

10News called San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s office to see if this was true. A spokesman told 10News he spoke to San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman and called the claims untrue, saying “Comic Con is nearly a week away” and why would they “crack down this early?”

However, their tickets, arrests and stay-away orders tell another story.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you'd like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.
