Seattle / Home of Stupid Ideas / Parks

The City Council this week is considering legislation that would fundamentally give homeless people a right to camp in Seattle parks. [reference article below]


For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3:10)

Lesson: Enough said : but not for Seattle. By definition Parks are not domestic dwelling sections of downtown zoning code.

Bonus: Seattle, home of just wanta have fun Seattle Police, have way tooo much time on their hands. This is what happens when you villainize Christianity and enliven King County Prosecutors to demonize holiness. The work ethic goes to hell. Give me 2 good preachers* permitted to preach and live the narrow gospel of Jesus and I will have that park cleaned out, cleaned up and cleaned for good within two weeks.

Why?

Because either the homeless will move away from the preachers or repent and serve the city by keeping the park in tip-top-shape. After all, those who are not going to work, are not going to eat. Notice Seattle Police, no passing out munchies because pot will not be allowed.

* May have to be imported from the Southern Bible Belt.

(seattletimes.com)—A HOMELESS person camped in the end zone during a youth-football game at Seattle’s Interbay sports complex, as seen on KIRO TV’s newscast, couldn’t have better underscored the absurd direction that the Seattle City Council is headed.

The City Council this week is considering legislation that would fundamentally give homeless people a right to camp in Seattle parks. It would set up ridiculous bureaucratic hurdles to removing homeless camps — even from what the ordinance defines as “unsuitable” locations like the end zone of a city park’s sports field.

 According to council staff, here’s what would be required to remove that end-zone tent under the bill, as originally introduced by Councilmember Mike O’Brien:

City staff would assess whether its location was unsafe, would have to find an “alternative public space” where the camper could move, then give him or her 48 hours’ notice and provide moving assistance, storage and personalized outreach. It demands a Byzantine notification process. And that’s just for the “unsuitable” camps.
