Can you still drive on the parkway and park in the driveway?

Actually it sounds like the city council passed a dumb ordinance that the police are derping up, not that you'd get the details from that "article".

In other words, don't be homeless or any other 'undesirable' now that it is tourist season.

They do link to a more detailed article. Here, lemme click it for you:

"On May 1, officers started handing out informational fliers on the newly updated law. Municipal Code 10.10.026 prohibits sitting or lying down on public sidewalks, including any portable object placed on the sidewalk between the hours of 6a.m. to midnight. It also forbids anyone to sit or lie down on any public fixture that is not designated to be sat on."

I'm just here to say I like the headline and that banning sitting on sidewalks will solve Spokane's homeless problem. I mean it will totally help. Really.

I do like the headline, though.

Slow down. This side walk is for regular walking, not for fancy walking. i277.photobucket.com

The best way to get rid of a stupid law is to enforce it not to elect stupid lawmakers.
 
2014-05-07 10:14:50 PM
Meh, I see nothing wrong with this.  If you want to sit down or rest wouldn't a bench, park or grassy area be more comfortable and suitable?  If you are trying to panhandle then I guess you'd want the foot traffic of a sidewalk but that's not what a sidewalk is for.

As a guy who is employed in downtown Spokane, I DO have to say, it's more for Hobo's, not homeless.

Homeless people have a lot of places to go around here. Some places are empty most days.
Granted, some don't want to give up their dogs or pets and most places won't cater to those people, which I can see because of pet diseases and fights.
(and before you go all derpy on me, I know this for a fact because of working with the homeless families many times)
There's a difference between homeless and hobo's.
Hobo's are just people who don't WANT jobs and would rather beg for money, get pissed if you offer them a sandwich and generally just hang out all day.
Don't get me wrong, we have a lot of people who are just out and out insane like my sister in law and those people, as much as you want to, you can't help if they don't want it or even know if they want it.

My favorite view of Spokane was in my rear view mirror.

They're lawmakers. Laws do not wear out or get old. They are just as fresh now as they will be 100 years from now. So why do we keep electing lawmakers? Shouldn't the law enforcers, AKA the executive branch, know when they need a law? We can call them up then, like jurists for jury duty? If you elect a lawmaker, expect some of those laws to be stupid, The real law of averages guarantee that.

Police don't get to ban a god damned thing. Take it up with your ordnance board.

Anyways a spokane fark party should be in order.

I get the guy from Colorado, which may or may not be a great place to live, depending on which part of Colorado, talking shiat about Spokane.

But your profile says you're from Burbank, CA.  If that's true, then LOL.  Your life probably sucks more than the average Spokane resident, but you probably can't grasp that.  We'll see you in the Pacific Northwest once you make enough money to GTFO of your area, whether it's Spokane, CDA, Portland, Seattle, Tri Cities, Bend, or Boise.  Want to join a Fark party in 2030?

I live in Bellingham.

One time I drove through Spokane and all I could think was "why the hell is there a city here?"

That's where you are wrong. Texass is better than Spokane. The South is better than Spokane. My stinky butthole? Yep, better than Spokane.

Really?  Do you make that assessment based upon actually having been to all those places or is this just typical Fark trash talk?

For the record living just north of Denver is pretty damn awesome compared to Spokane, in my personal opinion.

Ding!

Also, if your small shiathole town has like 5 COPs episodes a year filmed there homelessness may not be your problem.
