Seattle police union says it's their job to write park exclusions

The city of Seattle just put out a public relations fire over the discovery that it destroys homeless camps on city property. Now the Parks Department is hiring seven people as park rangers who will have the power to banish people for camping in the city’s downtown parks and committing other violations of park rules.

The rangers won’t be able to do it without a fight, however: The Seattle police union says that it is police work to write parks exclusion notices, which can ban people from parks for days or months, with union president Rich O’Neill threatening to file an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board.

    Have yοu ever thought аbout including a little bіt mоre than just your аrticles?
    I mean, ωhаt you say is νaluable and all.
    But imagine if you aԁdеd sοme greаt images or ѵіdeo clipѕ tο give your ρosts mοrе, "pop"!
    Υour content is excеllent but ωith іmages and clipѕ, thіs ѕіtе could

    Excellent blog!
