Homeless people in Langley harassed

Property removed from site included man's ID, clothes and new tent and sleeping bag.

Editor: I would like to address the constant harassment of homeless people in Langley. For myself, this will be the fifth time bylaws has come along with the company they hire as an outside long arm to do the job of removing all the property of a homeless person. Although there was no trouble, the RCMP had to be involved too. I guess there was no other protecting of the people of Langley that arose, so they just figured they could do bylaws’ job as well.

I realize now why taxes are so high and budgets are exceeded. They can have my brand-new tent and sleeping bag, and all my clothes and ID. I abided by the bylaw officer’s instructions and packed up my belongings in a cart, which I left with a neighbour while I went to use the washroom. They loaded up my cart anyway and took everything I own. I guess it’s back to the business owners’ front door with cardboard boxes and blankets.

Maybe jail is the next best thing. What kind of  crime should I commit?
