This is why the state should provide Porta Potties instead of a structure, which will be used as a nice house for the homeless!

The park is closed every night and the gate is locked with no public access. Ther are 10 permit only campers that are aloud to stay there. These people that get the permits are homeless and abuse alcohol and drugs and take advatage of the system. This is no act of radom violence. These permit people witnessed this crime. There is a record of the people who had a permit to camp in a closed park. They are involved or a witness.

No park is a 100% closed. Closing the main entrance with a gate or chain doesn't mean people won't go in the park at night.
