@Toby: Chill out with your false rhetoric. In fact, 10% of the previous electorate can petition to dissolve the park district.
The opponents - who LOVE LOVE LOVE parks - are so focused on dissolving the funding for parks, I'm a bit confused. No need to lie about the situation.
commented on How Will You Be Voting on City of Seattle Proposition No. 1 (the "Parks District" Measure)?
6 year levies are inherently inefficient. No way to manage a park department without long-range planning, since revenues drop off after the levy ends. The park district creates a stable funding source that is dedicated to parks. And the ordinance behind it ensures general fund contributions to parks stay steady, so funds can't be sent to other departments.
Neighborhood parks make Seattle great. That means taking care of them, for the long term.
Please vote YES on Prop 1.

No doubt this was a hate crime and it needs to be investigated to bring the perpetrators to justice. But I see no indication that fraternities are involved, so no need to wave stereotypes around when the facts are bad enough on their own merits.
