Recently, a Mexican counselor has brought about some outrage against herself after she made a statement regarding the lives of the homeless. The woman in question, Olga Gutierrez Machorro, said that anyone living on the streets should be given a lethal injection and put down like an animal in order to keep their numbers lower.

Machorro believes this is the correct course of action. She said: “Yes they’re a little crazy, but they’re harmless. Which is why I think to myself wouldn’t it be kinder to just give them a lethal injection?

Machorro, incredibly, is a member of local government within Tecamachalco, Mexico, and is the councilor behind the Vulnerable Groups Commission. This group, believe it or not, is solely responsible for discovering new ways to help the homeless and the disadvantaged.

These new remarks by the politician are sparking some outrage, and rightly so. Many people within the city are calling for action against this woman following these comments. Nothing is said to be happening to her or her government position, however.
