Can’t give in to loiterers


I totally disagree that nothing can be done to alleviate pedestrian gatherings in front of businesses. Look, I have seen policemen tell young people to move along, stop blocking the sidewalk. I am sure we still have loitering ordinances. For The Spokesman-Review to take an attitude of “oh well, we can do nothing about young people loitering in front of downtown businesses” is appeasement.

Capitulation. Not a worthy response. Their food was good. If we want to keep good businesses downtown, this is the wrong response.
