On Thursday, Seattle police arrested four people in the large homeless encampment near I-95. On Friday, the city of Seattle’s Navigation Team posted notices of an impending camp removal on trees and tarp structures.
And on Monday, police and cleanup workers cleared the remaining 24 campers out, in perhaps the largest camp removal since one in March. The Navigation Team has been monitoring the camp for months, visiting 18 times since Jan. 1, but they were waiting for the Seattle police’s drug investigation to finish before clearing.
Where the homeless will relocate to next is unknown, but their displacement will make their survival on Seattle’s streets more difficult.
Documentary filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch addresses the growing problem of homelessness in a new documentary film, and explains how it’s crushing the spirit of America.
