Only the police bother meSan Luis Obispo
Thank you for printing the letter from the woman (“Thank you for sharing,” Dec. 27) who alleges that the homeless “constantly” lurk in her neighborhood, urinating, trespassing, stealing her water, following her neighbors, leaving their dogs’ droppings, traumatizing her child, and leaving her afraid to sign her letter for fear of reprisal from these individuals, whom she considers a threat to women, children, and the elderly in spite of the best efforts of the police.
Wow! Thanks for the heads-up! I am not a woman or a child, but at 77 I’m not as tough as I was back when I was a Marine or a big-city street cop. So I think I’ll go on living in my little RV, where I’m only bothered by the police, who sometimes roust me even though I never park at night in residential areas, and even though the police would apparently be better employed in stepping up the protection for this poor woman and her neighbors.
Unless, of course, this anonymous letter was just a load of BS and another cowardly attempt to kick the less fortunate when they’re down.
