rockland is not the town we grew up with, the town has gone down hill for shore, and the streets are horrible, and the town officals are not doing there job right, to leave these streests this way is something eles, this is disrespect toward the towns people, they take the money and do with it what they want, they dont like truckdriver, or there truck, they have forbidden them to stay, here we provide there everyday needs and this is all we get, we cant stay there in our trucks, they say it the town people that dont want them to be there overnight, we say this too is disrespect for shore here we provide your food, medicine, and other household items, we deliver to your grocery stores, department stores, ect and this is how we are treated, We feel like a foreigner for shore, we tryed to talk to the offical in the town but they say it the town people that voted this in, I dont think so, if they really new they would of welcomed us, because they have common sense, this is passing the buck, and the blame on the community what a cheap shot,

There are several towns in the south shore that have become a bad place to live. WHY? Drug dealers. It isn't the immigrants only. It's our own neighbors and friends.

You have that right. From my office window, I see drugs being sold regularly from four different homes in Weymouth. Three are kids selling from their parents homes, and one is kids living in a house where the owners, relatives, recently passed away, and how these kids took over the house is beyond me. Build the fence. Close the border. end of problem. What the hell are all the cops doing anyway?
