A camp is reforming under the Freeway near 5th and 42nd. There are 4 tents now and garbage and shopping carts are starting to accumulate.
Watched a dude (high or drunk) defecate in the grass there in full view of parents and children this morning. Not OK. And there are already syringes and open dealing there and up 5th Ave NE.
Surely there’s guidelines about being next to an elementary school?
Wonder why Mayor Murray isn’t including this in his Find It, Fix It walk? LOLZ
Let’s give him some little baggies and have him fix it himself. Maybe incentivize him with the idea that you could build forty or fifty high end condos in the wedge under the bridge. Could call it Trolle Heights West.
More Tents went up last night, and these are some scary dudes in there. There is a man that is constantly brandishing a switch blade knife and speaking gibberish. He made sure I saw it a couple times when I was near.
On Tuesday one of them took a gigantic crap on the sidewalk in full view of people and cars driving by. Maybe its the same guy Frankie saw a few days before.
I called the police this morning at 1am when two men dressed head to toe in black were trying to force the chain and lock on the gate so they could bring their bikes through. They worked on it for 10 minutes as I was on the phone with 911. Police never came or called me.
I am putting my house up for sale.
@josh – The developers waiting to put up townhouses on your property thank you wholeheartedly!
It is true that the developers will be very happy about your house for sale. I hope you change your mind. Hate to hype you leave.
I submitted a report through the SPD website. Was careful to note only stuff I have personally observed, but open drug use, brandishing a switchblade and defecating on the sidewalk shouldn’t be acceptable in any location, but least of all an elementary school.
I get hives thinking about someone with a mental illness or in a substance fugue, wandering into their playground or into the building itself.
I’d encourage folks who share this concern and have witnessed worrying behavior (living in a tent is not in and of itself concerning) to submit reports also.
