  1. I HAVE NEVER, EVER SEEN SO MANY OUT OF TOWN JUNKIES IN MY ENTIRE LIFE COMBING THE
    STREETS OF THE NO. END. THESE JUNKIES ARE SHOOTING UP & DEFICATING IN OUR PLAYGROUNDS
    WHERE OUR CHILDREN PLAY. WE NEED CAMERAS IN ALL PLAYGROUNDS, OUR CHILDREN SHOULD
    BE PROTECTED. OUR ELDERLY SHOULD NEVER, EVER BE LIVING WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE DRUG
    PROBLEMS. THE CITY CAN MORE THAN AFFORD SEPARATE HOUSING FOR ELDERLY & THOSE WITH
    DRUG PROBLEMS. WHO THE HELL IS RUNNING THE HOUSING SYSTEM FOR THE ELDERLY?
