Re: “Exclude The Exclusion Zone

As someone who works in the Mental Health community, I am saddened by this ordinance. I agree with the one resident declaring the White Elitism of this community needs to stop. Using the excuse of an "exclusion zone" to protect against crime is just an excuse to create bias against those with unearned disadvantages and create an atmosphere of prejudice. Why don't the City Councillors spend more time on solving issues of homelessness, poverty, etc rather than blaming the "mentally ill" and others. It just creates more stigma and doesn't help people get better. To the Councillors who voted for this shame on you as you go home to your upper middle class lives and get to walk freely around this town. Isn't it a privilege to be in your shoes - maybe you should think about the impact your decisions have on those less privileged. Then next you should toss your "color" code and let some "ethnic" colors be displayed in this little Wonder Bread town. Signed, Viva El Sancho!
