SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Hours after the Mayor of Sacramento Darrell Steinberg apologized for police removing homeless people outside of City Hall, officers were back out doing it again.
A video shows Sacramento police telling about 15 people to leave city hall property around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning. Officers were enforcing a city ordinance that prohibits anyone from being at City Hall after 11 p.m. until 7 a.m.
Steinberg says it’s a mistake and wants the policy to be changed. He apologized Tuesday evening about a separate event when officers told homeless people to leave City Hall during a heavy rainstorm.
In an interview with the Sacramento Bee Thursday, Steinberg said he does not want people kicked off the property in general.
