A cat-and-mouse game between the city and its burgeoning homeless population took on a confrontational tone Friday as about two dozen officers swooped down on 15th Street North and either confiscated or destroyed a dozen tents in which homeless people had been living.

If it is not legal to camp, the police can do whatever they need to to chase the people out. Especially when they are knowingly violating the law.

They can not confiscate, or destroy private property w/o specific statutory authority. They did not have that, so what they did is a crime. It was theft and destruction of property.
