Equal enforcement

October 22, 2011


To the editor:

So it’s not OK for people to camp in South Park in tents, but it’s perfectly fine for people to live at South Park in two large run-down vehicles (an old Winnebago and a van with a homemade trailer attached) on Massachusetts Street.  Those vehicles have been there for a number of weeks, yet have been allowed to stay. But a few tenters in South Park? No, can’t have that. Those two vehicles parked on Mass. day after day are much more of an eyesore than the Occupy Lawrence campground. At least the campground does not block your view to the park and across the street.  Enforce the law equally, Lawrence, or not at all.

Are the vehichles in violation of any law ? If so ticket or tow them, same applies to the fleabaggers.

What we need are the Big Government Republicans in Topeka to pass a law requiring 'occupying vehicles' have bathrooms that are at least 10' x 10' with temperatures set to no less than 73 degrees. Otherwise, they'll be towed away.

What's the % of people that do not need a politician to complain to about their lot in life?

I bet the % is inverse to the % of people that would complain about being hung with a new rope.

What a joke! The campers on the street are not breaking the law. The campers in the park are and should be fined and kicked out NOW!!

At last the Occupy Wall Street group are trying the represent the other 99% of taxpayers who do not have access to elected officials. The other 1% seem to have no problem getting an appointment with elected officials.

The 1% =CEO's and other movers and shakers are allowed to comment before congress while the other 99% become victims of the 1%. The 1% does include our elected officials.

Good letter.

You hit the nail on the head, Lisa. What makes Lawrence seem like such an unjust, unequal , southern-justice type place is that the people like to abuse law enforcement for vindictive purposes.
