Floating Homeless Encampment Cruises Down Venice Canals

Kick the homeless off the streets and then they move onto the water. 

A ten-year Venice resident captured this footage that shows what appears to be a raft loaded with items floating down the Venice canals. 

NBC4 received an email from the resident, who said it is part of a floating homeless encampment. They spoke with a woman Wednesday morning who said she stores belongings and a power generator on the raft. 

Tents were set up along the canal walkway and garbage was strewn in the water and on canal banks at the site of the floating encampment Wednesday, NBC4 reports. 

That sure is one way to cheat the system!
