Do homeless lives matter? I’m sure that many of this blog’s readers are torn on the topic — but it’s the subject of this Sunday Sermonette.
(TAMPA, FL) A man and woman escaped injury this morning after they were dropped into the back of a sanitation truck while sleeping in a dumpster in Tampa.
Hillsborough County deputies say Donald L. Jordan, 37, and Lisa Sirbella, 49, likely became intoxicated at the Seminole Hard Rock & Casino before falling asleep in the dumpster at the WaWa store at Orient Road and Hillsborough Avenue around 5 a.m. Jordan told deputies that the pair was visiting Tampa from Kissimmee.
Radmas Valasquez, the driver of the Progressive Waste Solutions truck, emptied the dumpster into his truck then discovered the pair after hearing yelling and banging from the back end of his truck while on his route, deputies say. After he was unable to get them out, deputies say law enforcement and EMS crews responded and removed them from the truck.
The sheriff’s office says Jordan smelled of alcohol, was slurring his speech and was acting aggressive when deputies approached him.
The pickup was one of Valasquez’s first stops of the day, so there wasn’t much trash in the truck at the time of the incident, deputies said.
Jordan and Sirbella were transported to Tampa General Hospital after complaining of back pain, deputies said.
|First lady Michelle Obama responds with enthusiasm
to her new “I can’t breathe” campaign…
The Secret Service could handle the homeless de-lousing mission once Michelle found somebody to save. Since the Service’s selection process these days has shied away from the tradition uber professional protective service to accommodate certain minority hiring practices on the president’s and first lady’s details, its a mission that I think that they could pull off.
The Secret Service could also spray Lysol on the recovered homeless so that Michelle saying “I can’t breathe” will be interpreted correctly. Some of the pissy, maggot covered winos who are somewhere beyond ripe have lives that matter too and need to be embraced and returned to live useful lives. Michelle Obama is the perfect choice to make that happen.
