This is a letter sent into our local paper...to say it enraged me would be an understatement. I've read some low stuff but this by far is one of the worst. It really shows who the pricks of society are... Three solutions Tuesday, March 30, 2010 Email this article Printer friendly page Re Drugs, Alcohol Remain City Concern, March 28: I am getting fed up as a taxpaying, law-abiding citizen being blamed for the problem in that I am not supplying affordable activities for the culprits. This whole problem originated with the building of the first Shelter House. Have we forgotten the objections to this building? Have we forgotten that as soon as it was built, merchants were complaining of customers being hassled by drunks, etc.? It enables all the alkies, druggies and other useless people to congregate and cause havoc to hard-working, taxpaying citizens. Those of my generation who fought and died for the right of citizens to live in harmony and comfort have alas, died it in vain. The gutter level of society are allowed to destroy our way of life, rob, pillage and make it unsafe for decent people to shop even in daylight. The problem of Ms Jorgensen shows how we have let these people run rampant with little or no consequences for their actions (We Did What Police Wouldn‘t; South core retailer tracks down stolen dress, takes it back, letter, March 27). The first solution to this problem is to shut down and move the May Street beer store to Intercity. The second solution is to do what the Australians did when confronted by the same problem – round up the trouble-makers and banish them. The third solution is for the do-gooders and excuse makers to shut up and stop aiding and abetting these criminals. Generations of citizens came with little or nothing and made a good living for their families, obeyed laws and respected their fellow citizens. It is about time the present non-taxpaying citizens were forced to do the same thing. The next progression in this saga may be the formation of armed citizens to enforce our laws. The present legal system is not the solution, it is the problem. M.J.K. Robinson Thunder Bay This is disgusting. This person needs to pull their head out of their ass & crawl back into the hole they crawled out from. UGH!
