No, the ones in White Settlement call themselves the Irish travelers. When a person dies in a car wreck and has more than one license showing different ages as happened to an Irish Traveler here, when one person is carrying insurance for an extreme number of cars as happens here, and when one robs a store while others are distracting the clerks, and all of these are Irish travelers, then, yes, you do tend to mistrust these people. These are only a very few of the things that happen here.

Maybe you call them the English Travelers but they call themselves the Irish Travelers.

"The little girls are usually dressed like hookers too. Someone really needs to help get theses children to learn some morals...because their parents aren't going to teach them any that is for sure."

OK...seriously. I am not a Traveller, but you shouldn't post derogatory statements about people when you clearly know nothing of their culture. Shoplifting and scamming aside, there are crooks in every community, and as someone who worked in retail loss prevention for eighteen years, I can attest to the fact that the thieves came in all ages, sizes, races, and from all cultural backgrounds.

Where you are way off base is in your comments about their moral code. You're saying that you can speak to their lack of morality because of the way they dress. Are you kidding me? Let me educate you on that one. These people are of strict (mostly Irish Catholic) descent, and their moral code, I can assure you, is one that you and your own children could never aspire to, let alone attain. When was the last time you saw a Traveller girl with an out-of-wedlock child? I challenge you to find one, because it just doesn't happen. They might marry young, but they stay married for life. Sex before marriage is strictly forbidden, and their dates are even chaperoned. Aren't we past the point where we judge others based on the clothing they wear? So, they like glitz and glamour. So do a lot of other cultures.

There are worse crimes than the ones you describe in your post. Judgmental behavior, hypocrisy, and arrogance come readily to mind. It seems to me that your biggest issue with the Travellers is that they keep to themselves, dress funny, and refuse to robotically conform to your standard for appropriate behavior. Really good reasons to hate people, huh? I live in Plano, and given a choice, I'd rather live next to a group of Travellers than a bunch of mind-numbing hypocrites. Open your mind.

You need to get your facts straight before you post something. First of all, you don't pay tax on a house (a camper) on wheels. They are not mobile homes, they are campers, that have wheels (like the ones in White Settlement). Yes, they might have to pay taxes for the land, but that is minimal. Second of all, lying and stealing from people or stores is not a clean honest living. and third of all White Settlement does not need you. As much trouble as they and there illiterate children have caused, it more trouble then it's worth!

If you live in Plano you really don't know about the Irish Travelers. About the moral code, they are very against stealing if it is their own tribe--but the rest of the world is just fine to steal from and cheat.

If you want to live next door to them just move out to White Settlement. I am sure you can find a spot right next door that someone is wanting to move away from.
