OH you don't want to do that. They aren't zoo animals to be gawked at.

A friend of mine (minister) goes down into the tunnels and helps them out. Brings food and clothing. It took awhile for them to trust him. Like months. Each tunnel has its own personality with various addictions. They are not welcoming to strangers. You can't go down there alone and expect they will be welcoming. That is their home and they protect it as such.

Some are not down on their luck, they just want to live out of society. Many are mentally ill.

SWAT went down in there Sunday night after the shootings and were scared. lol One of them had a cell phone and called my friend who hurried down there to help them out. They were let back in an hour later. Of course they were worried someone might steal their stuff while gone. Happens a lot.

You'll probably get mugged for your beer. I really don't think you have thought this plan completely through.

So they are like a secret society of mentally ill drug addicts? Why don't the cops flush them out .

I think it would be pretty interesting , what would they try and kill me ? For all they know I want to move in and contribute

Also how do they not get blasted with water gushing down or even poisonous snakes, scorpions and spiders

They are not all mentally ill or on drugs. Certain tunnels there are drug addicts, some tunnels people are just down on their luck. Some just want to live that way. I think, not been told this the police leave them alone, otherwise they'd be out in the open. And they form families and take care of each other.

Yes when we have a monsoon, it wipes their stuff away. The last one, metro went down there and told them to get out of the way. One lady went back for something and drowned.

How would you like it if someone walked into your home, unannounced, you didn't know. Well that is how they think of living in the tunnels. That is their home. If you take them anything take them some winter clothes, sheets, blankets, etc. Tell them you want to leave them something to get through the winter and leave.
I'm not sure about spider, etc. They probably do come across these but the critters natural instinct is to avoid people. I know much about them from my friend and I wouldn't go down there. And I'd be safe with him. Give him clothing etc to take there.

No, but guessing the 92 is the year he was born, so brains aren't fully formed till late 20's.

^^^^ Yeah, especially if he runs across the untreated schizophrenic.

I take it back, just don't go down in any tunnels. Watch the stuff on youtube.
