It is not yet the hour...

...but it is the day.

Palm Beach Post:
"A crowd of more than 500 people waiting for hours this morning for housing voucher applications were dispersed by police in riot gear at the Boca Raton Housing Authority when the applications ran out sooner than expected.

"The action prompted complaints that officers used excessive tactics and housing authority officials were incompetent in their planning.

"Two people were arrested and six to eight people hospitalized for exhaustion during the ordeal."

These people were looking for help with housing. If they had been starving, and looking for food, well...maybe they wouldn't have allowed themselves to be dispersed so quickly.
