A homeless minister stands up to a New Jersey town that is evicting him, along with 80 other people living in the woods. When police raid the camp and take the minister out in handcuffs, he charges the town with harassment in retaliation for his outspoken views on unfair housing. With their future in question, the residents of the wooded community find contentment in creating innovative living conditions in their own makeshift homeless shelter as they await the judge’s decision. Destiny’s Bridge is a feature documentary.

  1. At least this group has not been moved to a Fema camp, not allowed to leave, under guards like many others have already been:

    Under the radar from the prying eyes of the public, South Carolina made it legal to get rid of their homeless problem. The people were given a choice, FEMA Camps or jail. The irony of it all was this happened right at the 50th Anniversary of Civil Liberties in August.

    The homeless would then be offered a choice by the officers: Go to jail for homelessness or be shuffled to a 240-bed, 24 hour shelter on the outskirts of town which they wouldn’t easily be allowed to leave.

    Activist Post reported that the Colombia South Carolina plan is already complete with an urgent Emergency Homeless Response report. The plan includes information about hauling the homeless away in transport vans to an already stationed shelter with workers, phone number for townspeople to report the “person in need”, an officer stationed to control foot traffic, public feeding moved there, more foot patrol offers for the city to keep out the homeless – oh, and the homeless can’t walk off the premise.

    But to many people there still are “no such things as Fema camps”., “it would never happen here in american”, “the ‘law’ would not allow it here”, etc
