Section 8 riot in Michigan.

From Taylor, Michigan comes a story indicating that problems in Central Pa related to the federal housing voucher program are part of a national trend.   I previously wrote here regarding applications to the Dauphin County section 8 program in 2010 and how local trends indicated a shortgage of landlords interested in providing housing under this program. 

Rioting in Michigan occurred yesterday when the local Section 8 administrators tried to distribute 1,000 vouchers amidst a crowd of 5,000 applicants.  H/T WXYZ - 7 TV.  Click here for a similar story in Columbus, Ohio in November.
