ATLANTA, Georgia – Some 30,000 people turned out on Wednesday for an event held by the East Point Housing Authority to hand out applications for Section 8 Housing. However, the EPHA had only expected around 10,000 to show up. Some people lined up several days in advance, and others came expecting a well organized event rather than a fight. Unrest and chaos ensued as the EPHA lost control and police had to be called in to control the crowd and eventually hand out applications themselves.
