i tried to offer lockpicking teaching to any homeless in my city. i also tried to put together a map of empty houses

nobody took me up on it because they were scared of being killed by land owners

sometimes you just have to do it yourself until its more normal where you are, imo. especially in the imperial core countrys

That's fair, entry is not the hard part and you don't need to pick locks when you can just break windows...

you can but a lot of these are just empty rentals on vacant streets. if you can get in without smashing a window then you don’t get the cops called on you.

what about forging and printing leases, deeds, other legal document? To make them feel safer?

Sorry that happened. you had the right idea, i just wonder if it was at the right time or not, right place or not.

being killed by land owners

That's way extreme. Do landlords kill squatters in your area, or it's just people being the usual sheepish/paranoid?

a couple seemed convinced that if the land owners found squatters on their property they would just kill them, but i doubt it

the others were still caught up in the mindset of “but squatting is illegal!”

i’m not out here trying to convince anyone to do something dangerous or do something they don’t want to do, so i didn’t press the issue
