Clean-Up South King Street in Seattle
Petition Background (Preamble):
Why should children be subjected to seeing druggies in the dozens solicting or being abusive towards passers-by on the streets during daylight hours?
Why should businesses be closing because customers are afraid to walk through groups of unstable/unsafe gangs congregating in front of their storefronts?
These are not the experiences any law-abiding citizen -child or adult - should have if the city systems responsible for public safety were doing their job to keep citizens safe.
It is a public outrage to experience the blight of drug trafficking and usage occuring on the International District streets. We ask that the city of Seattle take action to secure the streets and remove the dangerous element that openly occupy the neighborhood.
Neglecting these public duties - to safeguard our right to safety - has caused businesses to close, citizens to be victims of crime and harrassment and a general economic and social malaise to the neighborhood.
Remove the dispossessed, drug and unstable street vagrants so that citizens can take back the neighborhood.
