The much-pampered homeless in Seattle feel that they are entitled to erect their filthy tents on public property anywhere in town. So, when the city “cleans up” their illegal encampment, they just move on. Say, into the public Park nearby.
Remember, in Seattle the vagrants who camp on public property do not have to move when the city cleans up their camp. They are not in any way required to “accept a shelter bed” when the city “Navigation Team” offers one. In fact, the majority of denizens of homeless encampments around town refuse shelter beds when offered. So what does this mean? It means that the city is essentially powerless to save the public parks for the Public. If a homeless person decides to camp out in your neighborhood park, the city is prevented from getting that person off the street.
Who, again, runs Seattle? Evidently, not the city government, but the empowered “homeless” campers. Is this a city in which you would like to live? Not I.
One thought on “This is what Entitlement means in Seattle”
Well said, 49! Guahan
