3 fires in just a few days. From the last story there are booby traps, shallow toilet holes, drug paraphernalia (including used needles) and people who are aggressive and willing to go up against the police. Isn't it time to clean out this encampment for the safety of those living there, the firefighters who have to put out the fires and the general public?

The Baylands encampment needs to be removed ... this is an obvious hazard, not least for the homeless people who live there. We don't want people dying in a fire.
