Romania’s ‘sewer people’ evicted from tunnel network

Police have carried out a large-scale raid on a network of Bucharest tunnels and sewers, home to hundreds of men, women and children stricken by drug abuse and TB. Police said the operation followed months of surveillance on what they described as an organised criminal gang and reports of child prostitution.

    I remember reading that the overcrowded orphanages from old man Ceasescu’s reign of oppression ultimately created another problem for Romania in the form of a flood of vagrants, people who were unemployable in an already third-world grade economy.

    Most of those lost souls did not get a proper education, nor a proper upbringing, and once they reached adulthood, they were kicked out to fend for themselves. Some clawed their way to relative success, but others, like those sewer vagrants, sank into a miserable life of crime, vagrancy and substance abuse.

    If there is a Hell for Ceasescu, an eternity in a junkie-infested sewer would be a very fitting one…

    WOW ! That possibly ranks right up there as one of the most depressing videos ever.
    All these lousy little victims in Canada should be forced to view this.
    It is a real eye opener and a mind closer downer.
    I guess once you are into the cycle of despair– there is no fresh air.

    Same thing is happening here in Canada all cities are infested with criminals,drug addicts and prostitutes.
