Vagrants are transforming a historic Seattle Jewish cemetery into a dump. The reams of homeless people in the liberal city are dropping everything from dirty needles to human waste on the site.
Ari Hoffman, a board member of the local synagogue that is in the same neighborhood as the Bikur Cholim Cemetery, told Fox News on Wednesday, “You name it, we found it in the cemetery.”
Hoffman says the groundskeepers — who are sometimes assaulted by vagrants — can’t keep up with the barrage of waste that also includes used condoms.
The cemetery has been serving Seattle’s Jewish community since the 1800s but has never faced the challenges or desecration that it does today — such as people actually copulating on gravestones, Hoffman told Fox News.
It’s not just people camping at the cemetery. For the past two years, people have been parking their recreational vehicles along the road adjacent to the cemetery grounds and living there.
According to KOMO News, Seattle plans to spend another $84 million to alleviate the homelessness problem in the city that has spiked in recent years.
