*Consumer Comment: Not true
Beckie Wach, the DFW Salvation Army Commander, allows outright Abuse of the Salvation Army Residents at 1855 E. Lancaster Avenue in Fort Worth, TX. You will be REMINDED DAILY you are Homeless and TRASH. The Security Guards are extremely Agressive and daily they use THREATS, PHYSICAL INTIMIDATION and VERBAL ABUSE at the patrons, especially DERRICK, the big, black bald security guard. [continued below]....
Might I add that Derrick disproportionately targets the BLACK WOMEN in the shelter to physically intimidate and threaten. If he did this to white women he would be OUT OF THERE. But he is allowed to use his anger issues with WOMEN to get his highs out of abusing the shelter residents.
Every other word out of his mouth is BARRED. You will be BARRED for looking the wrong way at him or for not looking at him at all.
There is no one to complain to as security reminds people they are helpless and homeless and TRASH. Even though Security is just a few paychecks (or honestly maybe ONE PAYCHECK) away from being in the same predicament.
I believe that no matter one's station in life, everyone is afforded some amount of RESPECT. However, the Security at the Salvation Army Mabee Center, under the direction of Beckie Wach, suffers from the King's Complex, meaning they believe they are above IMPUNITY by abusing shelter residents.
I hesitated to type this complaint, because after all the place is a shelter which helps the less fortunate but then I thought about it. They draw GOOD SALARIES from the DONATIONS OF GOOD WILLERS who believe that shelter residents are being TREATED WITH RESPECT and not TREATED LIKE DOGS.
The overnight shelter residents are handed two sheets to sleep and then the temperature is dropped down to 20 degrees. FREEZING COLD. And these people are sleeping under thin sheets.
They are then instructed to wash and dry with one of the sheets as there are no towels EVER given out. Imagine using the sheet you JUST SLEPT ON to Wash off and dry with! while it scrubs the floor and gets dirty.
There is no non smoking areas at the shelter and people with Asthma and COPD, even "CHILDREN" are told if they don't like being around the CONSTANT cigarette smoke to HIT THE ROAD AND LEAVE. Smokers, evidently take PRECENDENCE. There is only one place to stand which is in the open rotunda which is a corridor which TRAPS ALL THE CIGARETTE SMOKE. And the place everyday is filled overwelmingly with CHAIN SMOKERS. No matter which way you stand you will get a face full of SMOKE. If you don't like Security will tell you to LEAVE.
No place is Perfect of that I am aware, but the Agression and Abuse by Security Guards, especially DERRICK, that motivated this complaint should NOT BE TOLERATED. As I stated, if this guy crossed the line with white person he would be kicked OUT. But as long as he does it to the downtrodden blacks who are in there NOTHING HAPPENS.
AND HE KNOWS AS LONG AS HE STEPS ON THE POOR AND BLACK AND VOICELESS HE WILL GET AWAY WITH IT AND EVIDENTLY HE'S CORRECT.
