Lane County Board of Commissioners : STOP SLEEPS-Challenge the bogus ruling

      Oceanside, OR

SLEEPS, an offshoot group of Occupy Eugene has proven to encompass all of the same issues. Once again an encampment has been made that hinders safe, hygienic uses of public areas. Our county simply cannot afford to provide janitors for the daily biohazard that this gathering continues to cause. Personally, I think our tax money would be best spent taking the bogus ruling regarding illegal camping in the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza to a higher court. Sanitation, safety and access to our public areas is not an absurd proposal. Free speech is not achieved by lack of sanitation nor is it hindered by common decency.  Let’s stop people from defecating on what we've worked so hard to create. As tax payers, that area belongs to us-TIME TO TAKE IT BACK.

To:
STOP SLEEPS-Challenge the bogus ruling

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I would be arrested for defecating even urinating in public. Why do they not?

      All people should have a place to sleep. However, they need to do so in a safe, hygienic and environmentally friendly way. Camping on the fairgrounds is none of those.

      these people being allowed to camp or squat anywhere makes this city look very dangerous dirty unhealthy. and chases off new busnesses with new jobs.
