The City of Atlanta is at it again. On Monday morning, crews came out to the Pryor Street bridge looking to clear out the homeless camp, something they did last week.
Last week, CBS Atlanta News told you about Davis White, a homeless college student struggling to put his life back together.
White lost everything after the city tore down the homeless camp where he lived.
To say White has fallen on hard times would truly be an understatement.
Since May, he's lived under the I-20 portion of the downtown connector until city crews wiped out the homeless encampment he called home.
White claims it happened without any warning.
"It's almost tantamount to having an apartment complex and every tenant in an apartment complex evicted without any notice," White said.
White told CBS Atlanta News that workers slammed a bulldozer into every tent standing with no regard for human safety.
"They had picked up one guy's tent there with him in it and we tried to tell him there was somebody in the tent," White said.
In a statement, Atlanta Director of Communications Sonji Dade Jacobs wrote, "It's not safe, sanitary or humane for members of our community to live on highway exit ramps or other similar locations in the city of Atlanta. The city of Atlanta has been working diligently to provide its homeless population enhanced services and will continue to do so."
CBSAtlanta.com will have more information on this story as it becomes available.
