its time to crack down on loitering, i see way to many
people on the streets just standing there for hours on end
and the police do nothing.regardless of the race
there are way too many illegals on our streets who drink
beer and block our local business's. its time to act.
i hear too many cases of people drunk and disorderly
what has happened to our peacefull town?

The hell is wrong with you? Do you realize what you're saying? How would your father/grandfather/great-grand father/ancestor, or whomever came to this country, feel if they were being told they couldn't even stand and talk with their peers IN PUBLIC. Yes, streets are PUBLIC, meaning belonging to the people, free for all to use, not for some bigot like you to try to kick immigrants off of. I think I know enough of these hard workers, who, might I add, help support our community by doing jobs no one else wants to do, to say they are some of the most generous, hospitable, friendly and considerate people. I don't think there are any more cases of them causing disturbances related to drinking any more than drunken rich white suburban teens, or blue collar folks outside local pubs. Think hard and I bet you'll find yourself realizing any animosity you're experiencing stems from your racism and narrowmindedness.

I got a ticket for loitering outside my home at 5:30 P.M., Where I use to presume residence. My apartment was right off of a public sidewalk, you walk on the sidewalk then turn and go inside the apartment complex. Well to make a long story short. I live in a small town called Dundee, MI...I went home one day and went inside my home...then came outside to smoke a cigarette and talk to a neighbor...for a minute. I was not obstructing nothing or impeding nothing...I was not hanging out for hours on in, and I was not disturbing the peace. My question for you is was I Loitering and do you think that loitering is against our human rights, as far as the constitution is considered?
