Re: Don’t be bullies (Letters, June 5).
It is said that the taxpaying citizens who are complaining about the homeless are bullies.
Am I a bully to protest when my garbage and that of my neighbours is thrown out onto the green belt beside my house?
Should I smile when I don rubber gloves to clean up the mess of detritus left behind by these people who have invaded my home and my yard?
Should I accept people urinating publicly, my being accosted on the street, and having my belongings stolen?
Am I a bully to resent having my car broken into twice and my neighbours car ransacked?
Is it wrong of me to ask for my town back, a town where the voters and taxpayers can feel safe again?
No, we are not bullies.
We are asking for our rights of safety and security.
We are asking for action.
