@14 telling it like it is.
I think the solution is a free improved jail. The SPD scoop homeless up from Gas Works Park, Northacres Park, etc. and instead of a costly legal circus, the police deposit suspect vagrants in Hobo Park -- a new aPodment like structure in an uncomfortable area of SODO.

? Hit the Greyhound or jump a train. This has happened before.
