'Half of the dozen remaining tents were confiscated; the others were slashed to render them unusable, Harmon said."

The cops should all be arrested for destruction of property.

"Harmon said officers had legal authority to confiscate or destroy the tents because they are allowed to remove a hazard that lies on a right of way, which is city property."

They had no legal authority to do so. They had authority to arrest the vagrants maybe, not destroy and steal their property.

Were the vagrants loitering on public or private property?
