Ann Arbor Area Community News
I have the fortune of living across from one of the city’s 147 parks—Forsythe Park, in fact, where many of Ann Arbor’s homeless gather in the warmer months. Today at around 3:30, a police car pulled up and parked alongside the park next to Jack’s Hardware. Out of it came a uniformed officer and a younger (20’s) woman in civilian clothes. They approached two men in the park who had an array of bags and belongings with them, including a shopping cart.
After a brief exchange, the officer dumped liquid from a bottle into the trash, and returned to his car. He wrote one of the men a ticket, and both he and the woman got back in the squad car. They drove off after about 10 minutes, during which the apparent civil offender packed his things and left.
I feel safer now.
