McPherson Square is finally being reclaimed by the Park Service.
I will only be completely happy when I see the entire square scrubbed of these vermin.
But in my mind, it is still only a partial victory since the powers that be have not taken the appropriate stand. From Reuters:
“”This is not an eviction,” U.S. Park Police Sergeant David Schlosser told reporters. “We’re not just willy-nilly tossing stuff.”
He called the action a “nuisance abatement” and said police were “focusing on camping restrictions.”
Guarded by police, sanitation workers cleared away most tents and heaps of bedding, palettes, crates, tarpaulins, full-sized mattresses, books, clothes, straw and other debris that had accumulated over the four months of occupation.”
