Bill Radke speaks with KUOW's Kate Walters about the way unauthorized homeless camps around Seattle are being cleared out. While a lot of care is being taken to provide outreach to residents of the encampment under Interstate 5 known as the Jungle, outreach and services have not been uniformly made available during sweeps of other homeless camps.
