Mayor Becker and Chief Burbank,
Please don’t let the media put you in reactive mode. It won’t make us safer and might create issues where there were none before.
Its been a month, by your grace. Before booting everyone from Pioneer Park; think about how many homeless die in Salt Lake City every month? Certainly its more than one? It must be more than one.
I don’t see the basis for attributing this death to the circumstances at Pioneer Park. Not without SOME numbers.
Chief Burbank, the media is telling us you can’t do your job and keep Pioneer Park safe with the OWS campers there. Is that really true?
I think we all know, you couldn’t wish for a more cooperative group. Heck, they all love you and you know it! The DeChristopher group has nothing but high praise for you.
Is it possible that homeless deaths in SLC have gone down since the Occupy group started camping in Pioneer Park?
What are the numbers?
Is it possible Pioneer Park is actually a SAFER place for the homeless after hours as the result of the OWS campers.
Tell us the numbers?
Popular movements will always tax law enforcement disproportionately. But please, do not let this important movement and message from the people, be muzzled because of the inconvenience. Don’t let them win.
Thank you both for your sincere efforts, patient service and generous wisdom.
My Sincere Regards,
