Fights, Chaos as 30,000 Line Up for Housing Applications

A chaotic crowd of 30,000 people showed up to receive Section 8 housing applications in East Point, Georgia, three times the number officials were expecting. TheAtlanta Journal-Constitution reports this is the first time since 2002 that space in government-subsidized apartments has been available. The paper reports people began pushing and shoving when they were told to line up in a different place, and 62 people needed medical attention. Fights also reportedly erupted when some tried to break the line.
