5 Citations and New "No Trespassing" Zone Closes City Hall Grounds at Night 10 PM to 6 AM
by Robert Norse
In another move clamping down on public use of previously public space, the city posted "closing hours" on the City Hall grounds for the first time, without any kind of public hearing, announcement, or rationale. Last night homeless activists reported five more false citations being given for sleeping or lodging, unconstitutional because the Homeless Services Center has acknowledged and KION reported, that all available shelter has a waiting list of weeks. Hence police know such citations will be thrown out by courts on a "necessity" defense (or just a letter from HSC).
