Spokane sexual assault survivors join national #WhyIDidntReport

UPDATED: Fri., Sept. 21, 2018, 9:41 p.m.

There can be many reasons why survivors of sexual assault don’t report: shame, guilt, embarrassment, denial or disgust. Not to mention fear – of losing a job, friends, colleagues, privacy, even one’s life. That’s why, experts say, about 7 out of 10 people who experience sexual assault never report it, according to Justice Department statistics.

Dennis Cronin thinks there’s reason to worry about Spokane County Superior Court. And it all starts with the image it presents to the public. Like a castle up high, overlooking the city with jutting spires and an impressive, protruding tower, the attorney likens it all to a medieval stronghold – the judges the elite royalty, the attorneys perhaps like barons and baronesses, and everyone else: commoners, servants, and at the bottom, detainees.

Crime is higher near downtown Spokane homeless shelter, and businesses are fed up

UPDATED: Fri., Aug. 31, 2018, 8:06 p.m.

The relationship between business owners and the chronically homeless who spend much of their time in the six-block radius near Pacific Avenue and Division Street downtown has reached a boiling point this summer, leading many to become vocal for the first time since the House of Charity switched to 24/7 services in 2016.
