TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) -
A chaotic scene erupted at the Taylor Human Services Center when the crowd waiting for a Section 8 housing voucher distribution got out of control.
The center is located at Eureka and Lange Roads. That's on Eureka, between Beech Daly and Inkster.
Police say thousands of people from all over the area were at the center. Many were homeless, single moms, or disabled. They were hoping to get help paying for their housing from the government.
"There was elderly, disabled people, pregnant single women. They were here for help, to get their Section 8 vouchers. It just shows you what a desperate need... some were here since yesterday," said Rhianna Rodriguez.
7 Action News is being told there were 1,000 vouchers available and 5,000 people showed up trying to get one.

The people there were probably so angry they used their Obamaphones to call 911.
We should all be ashamed of ourselves, providing only 1,000 vouchers when there is demand for 5,000. We should all be TAXED MORE!!
Just a bunch of Obama’s sons and daughters looking for some “Free” housing..after all, its their “Right” to have everything they want in life for free
They sound like they would all be lovely neighbors. /s
No wonder we can’t give military retirees the health care they were promised...http://www.svherald.com/content/community/2013/01/12/344793
Oh well. I guess someone has to sacrifice for the less fortunate. Oh wait, we already did.
Nothing new....regardless of who is POTUS, this has been going on for many, many years. It happens all over the country .... even just to get your name on a waiting list for the voucher. American citizens, especially the blind, elderly and disabled, in desperate need never get the help they need until someone else gives up their voucher....how many vouchers, perhaps multiple vouchers, are going ILLEGALLY to illegal immigrants with multiple identities and/or LEGALLY to illegal families with anchor babies?
Elderly, disabled, pregnant Riot!
I have several rental properties and there is NO WAY I would ever rent to a Section 8 recipient...I don’t care how much the government pays me, it’s just not worth it.
All the section 8 weenies I have ever had the misfortune of ever knowing were young and able bodied professional victims.
Maybe they belong in Section 8 of a jail.
Why not? I have only had one S8 renter but she was good. Clean, paid up promptly. Don’t they get kicked out of the program if they are bad tenants?
Wait until our economy crashes Greek style, and the EBT system crashes with it.
In three days, our cities will be starving, and furious, both.
It's good to be out in "the country", armed to the teeth, and with plenty of fertile land, a stream, a big cast-iron woodstove (with cooktop), a large dog, and supplies. You keep trying to steal from me with your votes, now come and try to get them yourselves, Democrat moochers.
Same thing happened in Columbus ohio a couple of weeks ago...Hundreds of people showed up for the housing thing..I don’t know many units were available but there was one heck of a lot people there...The odd thing was, they all appeared to Arabs.!! they all looked to be wearing burkers..!(?) they showed it on TV.. The cops showed up when they started parking on peoples lawns. So they closed the whole thing down..!!
“A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have.”
Before you buy your next house, make sure there is no Section 8 housing nearby. Even the nicest subdivisions can have Sec 8 housing nearby.
