Mayor Bruce Harrell is upset about the natural consequences of his policy. Jesus Christ almighty. I have had many problems with SPD and surely will continue to. But this is a consequence of moving police to harassing more homeless people.
If you want to (wrongly in my opinion) blame the defund movement or whatever for saying it’s choice between investing adult rape and attacking homeless people, I guess go for it. But ultimately the administration is responsible for making the choice.
Anyway, please wash your hands right now. And get vaccinated or boosted if you’re eligible.
