KONG (AP) — For many of the richest people in Hong Kong, one of Asia's wealthiest cities, home is a mansion with an expansive view from the heights of Victoria Peak. For some of the poorest, like Leung Cho-yin, home is a metal cage.

The 67-year-old former butcher pays 1,300 Hong Kong dollars ($167) a month for one of about a dozen wire mesh cages resembling rabbit hutches crammed into a dilapidated apartment in a gritty, working-class West Kowloon neighborhood.

The cages, stacked on top of each other, measure 1.5 square meters (16 square feet). To keep bedbugs away, Leung and his roommates put thin pads, bamboo mats, even old linoleum on their cages' wooden planks instead of mattresses.

"I've been bitten so much I'm used to it," said Leung, rolling up the sleeve of his oversized blue fleece jacket to reveal a red mark on his hand. "There's nothing you can do about it. I've got to live here. I've got to survive," he said as he let out a phlegmy cough.

It Won't Occur Here

2oning rules prohibit it. There is no in-between in our country. If you're priced out of housing you're simply homeless. Period. No mini rooms/cubicles for rent like in Tokyo. Just the street, your Vehicle, or bus stop bench.

I'll Be Surprised If They Can Even Find The Money To Rent Cages

Of course the government F.E.M.A. camps will be utilized as "CAGES" in America...

F.E.M.A cages can hold thousands. Cram em in like sardines.

We will make them feel what bondage and slavery really is, by denying them death by feeding them just enough food to keep them alive. We will withhold death until their flesh leaves their bones."
