WTF? I remember when Boulder Shelter did NOT allow the homeless to loiter on their property overnight!

Unless you managed to get an available bed, you were out of luck — NEVER were you permitted to sleep outside the facility.

See the story in the Daily Camera here: Boulder police: ‘Sexually violent predator’ will stay near homeless shelter. Copied below in its entirety:

Boulder police announced on Friday that a man deemed to be a “sexually violent predator” will be “staying by a ramp that is on the east side” of the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless.

Michael Smith, 48, has a conviction out of Rhode Island for second-degree child molestation, according to court records, and a 2015 conviction for sexual contact without consent.

Smith originally registered with Boulder police in August 2016 and has since lived along Broadway between Violet Avenue and Lee Hill Drive, in an abandoned building east of Arapahoe Avenue and 55th Street and north of the golf course and at 2995 Eagle Way #24.

Smith is required to notify police whenever he moves.


It just never ends, does it? Ask yourself this question, how do the many adult survivors of sexual crimes who are temporarily staying at Boulder Shelter for the Homeless feel about predators lurking both inside and outside a facility which bills itself as a safe shelter? Ain’t nothin’ safe about it!
