A businessman in Democrat-run Denver was given a citation for refusing to clean up homeless people’s poop out front of his business. The owner, named Jawaid Bazyar, believes it’s not his job to clean up the poop that homeless people keep “dumping” out front on his sidewalk, no pun intended (or maybe it was).
The city issued him a citation, despite giving him several warnings. However, Bayar feels as though cleaning up other people’s human waste is not his job and the city needs to step up and take care of their bigger issues.
But it’s not just human feces, it’s more than that, as stated on CBS: ““There’s food, trash, drug deals. In the alley, we get the defecation, drug needles,” he told CBS’s Dominic Garcia.”
It’s an issue that now has him at odds with the City of Denver. Bazyar, president and an owner of FORETHOUGHT.net, says he and his staff have stopped cleaning up the mess. He calls it a health hazard that they’re not equipped to deal with. Bazyar says the problem stems from the city not enforcing laws so they should clean it up.
“If the city’s not going to enforce laws against trespassing, or camping, or public defecation and just make me bare the cost of these problems that’s just not right,” he told CBS4.
But the City of Denver disagrees and has recently cited Bazyar. A city spokesperson says if it’s on his property, it’s his responsibility. They added that he can receive additional citations for each day the debris is not cleaned up.
Bazyar plans to fight his citation and take his case to the city. It’s a shame the Democrat Mayor, Michael Hancock, hasn’t offered any solutions, that we currently know of.
Perhaps Hancock can step up and do something about the homeless people in his city instead of letting his city give people citations for pooping they did not commit.
