Seattle Times

‘There’s no freedom’: Not all homeless living in vehicles welcome city’s ‘safe lots’

Originally published February 17, 2016 at 8:07 pm

By Nina Shapiro
Seattle Times staff reporter

Danny Fletcher waxed ecstatic last week about the temporary Interbay motor-home lot recently set up by the city of Seattle.

“I love it. This is beautiful,” said the 32-year-old Army veteran. “Every day I get to wake up, use the bathroom and feel human again.”

He was referring to the port-a-potties placed in the middle of a row of 17 motor homes, right next to the dumpsters — another welcome convenience for people who have long lacked a way to dispose of their trash.

Even then, Fletcher remained guarded about whether he would move to one of two permanent “safe lots” the city plans to open in Ballard and Delridge as early as Friday. “If my stomach says don’t do it, and my dogs are not happy with it, I’m not going to go through with it,” he said.

Cautiousness erupted into full-blown revolt this week, after social-service providers hired by the city came around the West Amory Way lot with a three-page document outlining rules for the new areas. No use of cooking stoves, propane heaters or power sources in the RVs, no unauthorized guests, no alcohol, drugs or smoking of any kind in vehicles. No exit or entry into the lots from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

“There’s a whole bunch of can’t, can’t and can’t,” said Fletcher. “There’s no freedom.” He added: “I should be able to do whatever I want in my home.”

He won’t move to the permanent lots, he insisted, and seven others gathered Wednesday in the Interbay lot said the same. Their stance sets up a possible confrontation with the city. The vehicles in the Interbay lot — and two other temporary motor-home sites set by the city — have permits due to expire within days.

The city says it is willing to negotiate the rules. The contractor managing the lots says it will now allow guests and loosen the curfew, and is considering other changes. But there is no decision yet about what to do if motor-home owners still refuse to leave, said Sola Plumacher, who is overseeing creation of the safe lots for the Human Services Department.

Officials, however, are under pressure to do something. For weeks, North End residents have been complaining bitterly about RV dwellers in their midst, perceived to be responsible for crime and trash. Mayor Ed Murray pitched the lots as a humane response — not only to complaints, but to the rampant homelessness that has driven hundreds of people to their vehicles. Their advocates have long called upon the city to do just this.

But RV dwellers have something those living on the streets lack: a home, of sorts, and with it autonomy and a sense of ownership.

“It’s not as unpleasant as people might think to live in an RV,” said Neal Lampi, sitting in his unusually spacious, neatly maintained 34-footer, parked near the new city-sponsored tent city in Interbay. “It can be comfortable. It can be yours.”

He bought his off Craigslist for $4,500 — far more than many pay in the RV marketplace, where shabby impounded vehicles are sometimes auctioned off for as little as a dollar. Still, it’s next to nothing when compared to local real estate. “This is affordable housing in Seattle,” Lampi said.

So as Seattle police officers have gone around the city over the last month, knocking on RV doors and urging those inside to move to the new lots, they have not always been greeted with enthusiasm.

“Trying to keep it simple”

“Hey, Mr. Major?” bellowed Sgt. Paul Gracy, outside the door of a worn RV on West Nickerson Street one morning around 10.

Bearded and shirtless, 57-year-old John Major opened the door and leaned out.

“It’s day number two,” Gracy said, alluding to the city’s three-day time limit for parking in any given spot. Will he be moving to one of the city’s temporary lots? Grady inquired.

“No, absolutely not,” Major declared. “I’ll actually be leaving Seattle city limits tonight.”

“I’m not going to be around people who have drug issues,” he explained, echoing a stereotype of RV inhabitants. “These people are lost.”

In truth, he seems lost himself. He said he and his wife moved into the RV years ago when he lost a fuel-hauling job. Sick with cancer, she died in his arms last June.

“I’m trying to keep it simple,” he said. For him, that means pushing on to Everett and looking for a new place to park.

A handful of other RVs that had been parked nearby also have left town. According to those who knew their owners, they feared an unsavory element in the city lots, and didn’t like what they saw as a government attempt to control them.

Fletcher is prone to those fears himself but was persuaded to relocate by conversations with city officials. They have some history.

Last summer, he was living in a cluster of RVs residents called “Bangarang Village,” which sprang up on North Northlake Way near Gas Works Park. Dealing with complaints even then, the city pressured the villagers to move on. Fletcher and others refused. Just as police were ready to evict them, they relented and migrated to an out-of-the-way spot overlooking the Fremont Cut.

That spot, however, was claimed by a shipping business that soon decided it wanted a parking lot. As the business and Bangarang villagers clashed, and the city began its push for safe lots, Fletcher made a deal with Sgt. Gracy: Tow his friend’s immobile school bus to the Interbay lot, and he would follow.

McAfee Offers To Unlock San Bernardino Shooters iPhone For Free

By: Robert Walker

John McAfee has offered to unlock an iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters for free in just three weeks, but only if the FBI cancels its order for a backdoor on iOS.

McAfee said: “I work with a team of the best hackers on the planet,”

“I will, free of charge, decrypt the information on the San Bernardino phone, with my team.”

He added that he wanted to unlock the device because he didn’t want Apple to implement a back door, which is a method used by security services to access data on encrypted devices.

“This is a black day and the beginning of the end of the US as a world power,” McAfee said.

“The iPhone is notoriously difficult to hack compared to other devices,” he said.

Tim Cook said that introducing a back door would make all iPhones vulnerable to hacking by criminals.

McAfee concluded by saying: ‘If you accept my offer, then you will not need to ask Apple to place a back door in its product, which will be the beginning of the end of America.’

I have my doubts if that McAfee story circulating is true. One version I saw said:

“I will, free of charge, decrypt the information on the San Bernardino phone, with my team” so that Apple doesn't have to place a backdoor on its product, he said."I would eat my shoe on the Neil Cavuto show if we could not break the encryption on the San Bernardino phone."

The story smells of the usual internet viral false story.

I question it also because if McAfee thinks it's a simple manner of decrypting some code he is over simplifying the issue. So he has the hacking capabilities beyond the PTB's? Why would I ever want to use a McAfee product if they have that ability. Should I feel secure knowing some commercial outfit can fetch any of my info secured by other manufacturers?

Did law enforcement make a big error in its handling of the iPhone after the San Bernardino shooting?

That's what Apple is claiming. According to senior Apple executives, there was a lost opportunity to get into the shooter's iCloud account, which had been backed up six weeks prior to the shooting.

They said the iCloud password was changed hours after the shooting, preventing a potential iCloud backup that may have revealed further information about the suspect.

The phone was actually issued to the shooter, Syed Farook, by his employer and belonged to San Bernardino county.

According to senior Apple executives, in an attempt to access the device soon after the attack, someone at the county changed the iCloud ID password, preventing a potential iCloud backup.

On Friday, San Bernardino county tweeted that it had reset the iCloud password at the FBI's request.

The County was working cooperatively with the FBI when it reset the iCloud password at the FBI's request.

Apple engineers would have tried to find a known Wi-Fi network that the suspect had utilized. That's because the phone would've backed up to iCloud when it was on a trusted network and plugged in -- assuming the password hadn't been changed and the suspect had his Wi-Fi turned on.

Speaking generally about the way the iPhone interfaces with iCloud, an Apple spokesperson said there's no way to tell from Cloud reports if backup was turned on or off. According to the spokesperson, there's also no way to tell whether or not Wi-Fi was turned on.

Regardless, the investigative option to find out was ruled out when the password was reset.

The Department of Justice acknowledged that the password had been changed.

But, the Justice Department, in a footnote to its filing on Friday, said that any backup would have been "insufficient" because it didn't have the same amount of information as what was on the phone itself.

Furthermore, investigators believe the shooter had turned off auto-backup, saying the phone had been auto-updating weekly until the last backup six weeks before the shooting.

blah blah blah cool so they did not detect the farooks on social latforms..they allowed droves of reporters into their house..effectively destroying chains of potential evidence..explosives found..but..neighbors not evacuated. and now this....does this sound like people really interested in who farook talked to on this phone? Who in the FBI..or DOJ ordered the reset? Just what was crossing his/her mind?

Hey Sys,

I was shocked when they let the reporters tromp through the apartment. That was insane. It looked to me like the powers that be wanted the place contaminated.

Mystery over 'UFO' spotting as six lights hover in the sky over Hythe

Posted: February 21, 2016

SIX mysterious lights circulating over Hythe and Folkestone have caused some to believe there are UFOs present around the Kent coast.

According to the Sun the lights were seen hovering for 30 minutes causing some residents to take photos on their mobile phones. The phenomenon cannot be explained by the nearby MoD base as they confirmed there were no training exercises taking place at the time.

Crystal,

Slightly off topic, but did you see that a man in the UK has been jailed for shining a laser at a police helicopter ?

This was around the time a Virgin plane had to return to the airport when the pilot was dazzled by laser light.

Maybe he should have tried the defense that he thought it was a ufo.

In fact I'm surprised that people haven't tried to light up unknown objects to enable them to see the outline.
