The Sewer Kids Of Columbia [Video]

Homelessness is a sad statement of our societies increasing lack of concern of the living conditions of those less fortunate than ourselves but as bad as the situation may be here it is nothing when compared to the lives of homeless children in Columbia.

Not only do these children, and adults, have to live dodging rats, flash floods, drug addicts but they also have to deal with the government’s “social cleansing” which means paramilitary units wearing masks heading into the sewers to kill the kids they find there and then if that doesn’t work they pour gasoline down the manholes and set it on fire.

The following video is a look into their lives and isn’t for the weak stomached.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
