Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our latest post about Anonymous threats against Michael Hancock involved a video that warned the Denver mayor about possible retribution if he didn't change his policies regarding homelessness.

The next month, Anonymous demanded that Hancock resign or else face exposure for his alleged ties to the Denver Players prostitution ring.

Among the many responses we got to this update is the one below, in which the author argues that Denver's homelessness issues are a lot more serious than the possibility of a politician's paying for sex.

Here's what he had to say.

We do not care about hookers and blow, Anonymous. For fuck's sake, cut him some slack on partying down. Y'all just jealous. Tell you what, Anonymous...I invite you to visit our city of Denver. I will volunteer to give your people a guided tour of Colfax and the Golden Triangle. We can visit the shelters and go for hikes through the viaducts, and walk the 16th Street Mall together. I reckon you need to see this with your own eyes, because you clearly do not understand the severity of the situation here. Many of them do not even want help...they would rather shoot smack and smoke meth instead. These hobos are busing here from other states and committing serious crimes every day. 2/3 of all Denver 911 calls involve homeless parties. They are attacking tourists on the street now and kicking down people's doors. It never used to be like this before.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
