  1. We’ve been plagued by bad behavior from the homeless for years now in Arlington. North School Park has police and/or ambulances coming at least once a week in the nice weather. Between them urinating and defecating near the park district building, sleeping on the ground or concrete tiers (they can’t lay down on the benches b/c there are dividers there now), drinking, and smoking, they have taken over the north end of the park, making it off limits for the tax paying public. Then they make a mess in the library and take over entire tables with all their junk. Everyone is afraid to say anything to them so once again political correctness trumps the rights and well being of those who pay taxes.
