King County just revealed their plans to put a "Tent City" on a vacant lot across the main street from the entrance to my neighborhood. This tent city will be about 1 block away from my home and house up to 100 transients for minium of 90 day. King County Executive, Ron Sims (firstname.lastname@example.org) attempted to set up the tent city without the local residents knowledge. His plans leaked out over the weekend. The transients are scheduled to move in on Wednesday or Thursday. We live in Suburbia. There is nothing here for the homeless. No jobs, no food, no facilities, just hard working residents who live in the suburbs for peace and quiet. If I wanted to deal with inner-city issues, I would live in the inner-city! We will have these leaches of society roaming our neighborhood at all hours of the day & night. Most likely, the crime rate will increase and property values will plummit. I am extremely upset about this. Both the fact that this tent city is moving into my neighborhood, and the fact that the county officials attempted to decived the residents and sneak it into our neighborhood. One official said that she mis-judged the neighborhood reaction to having a roaming community of transients moved into the area. How could she expect us to be happy about this? My wife has been instructed to not answer the door when she is home alone. I am going to purchase security lights to put up around my house and anything/everything of value will be locked up at all times.
