Clearing homeless encampments 'not humane,' Washington DOT secretary says

On Thursday, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and Washington State Patrol (WSP) plan on removing residents from two encampments along Seattle freeways near where the rock throwing incidents happened.

WSDOT Secretary Roger Millar said because those encampments pose a public safety risk in a criminal matter, they will be cleared out.

But speaking to Washington State Transportation Commissioners Wednesday, Millar said the state has no plans to clear out additional encampments.
