Can the Olympia City Council be serious? Establishing drug-free zones means the rest of Olympa is fair game for those who wish to continue committing felonies in public by shooting up with their drugs.
I notice the drug-free zones do not include areas around shopping, restaurants, senior centers, parking lots or anywhere else law-abiding citizens would otherwise shop, eat or live. Add the proposed no/low-barrier shelter into the mix, and you have given permission for the low-lifes to take over downtown.
One additional foot-patrol and a narcotics detective will not make a difference.
