Every day I drive up Monroe to get to work I see police cars and dump trucks and I know what’s going on. It’s infuriating to see how houselessness is demonized in a city where so many claim to have so much pride in. We have a lot of work to do if “Who can? Spo-can.” Is actually going to mean something

Homelessness is not a crime. Quit punishing them. Their lives are hard enough as it is.

We need to revise Spokane's homeless policies to get people into housing instead of taking their belongings and criminalizing thier status.

Being homeless should never be a crime! SPD needs to spend their time catching criminals and protecting and serving all residents of Spokane and not spend our tax dollars on harrasment of the poor and homeless.

The City of Spokane needs to find a positive, human way of helping houseless folks secure housing. "Moving them along" and throwing out their belongings only creates more chaos in their lives and does absolutely nothing to help. There are better ways!

Homelessness is not a plauge. It's people who our system has failed

Where else are our homeless population to go. Taking their shelter & possessions isn't the solution.
