P&C On The Streets Edition 9

Burien, a suburb of Seattle, has now criminalized "camping" on public property. It's an attempt to manage safety concerns. These measures were met with criticism from advocates for the homeless, who argue they are criminalizing poverty with no solutions to the underlying issues of homelessness.


The incident involving Linda Akey and her comments to unhoused individuals highlights the tension between residents and the destitute population, especially when encampments are located in residential areas or city centers. The video of Akey's interaction with the individuals with no fixed abode and the subsequent media coverage may have influenced the public discourse and potentially the decision-making process of the city council.
