Denver Says Business Owners Must Clean Up Homeless Poop, Dirty Needles

If you think you’re having a rough day – wait until you hear about Jawaid Bazyar.

Mr. Bazyar owns a business in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver – a nice place to run a business until the Democrats took charge of things.

Mr. Bazyar says the are has been overrun by homeless people and drug addicts. Tells the local television station that his alleyway has become a de-facto bathroom. Piles of human waste – and dirty needles.

“The wall is a bathroom stall. They lean up against it and let it rip,” he told television station FOX31. “In downtown Denver, that’s nonstop now, just piles of poop.”

He said they call the police – sometimes up to 10 times a day – but nothing ever gets done. All the while, Mr. Bazyar and his workers are bullied and harassed and threatened by the druggies and homeless.

“I’ve been chased with a 2-by-4, a knife, a pipe. A man bashed in my windshield with a rock,” said staffer Tamara Chapman.

So you can imagine his anger the other day – when he received a citation from the city of Denver.

According to the Department of Health – Mr. Bazyar is responsible for cleaning up all that human waste and disposing of the dirty needles.

“Because it’s a bio-hazard. It could be infectious. I didn’t hire these people to clean poop off the ground. I can’t, as an employer, just say, ‘Go and clean up the feces’,” Bazyar said. “I’m not the one doing this, and they won’t do anything about the people committing the crimes, but I’m the one who’s easy to find and easy to punish.”

That’s right folks – instead of punishing the people pooping in the streets – the city of Denver has decided to punish the law-abiding business owners.
