Roslenda: I don't like all me neighbors but that doesn't give me the right to videotape what goes on in their yards or to waste the police and county staff's time with constant complaints over imaginary infractions. The deal with living in a city is that you have to put up with other human beings living and working near you - even if you don't like them because they are young or not your skin color or your religion etc etc. The woman who owns the property that MVA leased has a right to have a business on her property - it is located on a busy commercial street. Maybe you don't approve of educating children. Maybe you don't think people should be allowed to have children. Those are your personal issues. Living in a free county means that you can't impose your personal preferences on everyone in sight. I am sorry that you are tired, or hurting; but you won't find peace by hurting others.

Missing from this story is the voice of the parents and the children who attended MVA.
What the story doesn't talk about is what the neighbors were doing on a day to day basis to try to drive the school away. It doesn't talk about what it feels like to know that your county government is "on the side" of someone who has bad intentions towards your children. Ask yourself - How would you feel about a middle aged man standing outside the school yard snapping pictures and make video tapes of your 7 year old daughter day after day? That's not mentally stable behavior - its scary stuff. But the county had no interest in protecting our kids - I guess the crazy neighbors made more campaign donations than our kids did. So many of us felt that we needed to go somewhere that felt safer.
One can debate about who has the right to set zoning policy, but there should not be any debate about whether or not adults can harass and intimidate children. IT IS WRONG! What the neighbors did to this school is wrong. It would have been illegal in any other community in the nation. This is not about a free market or Darwin - its about wealthy campaign contributors being able to operate outside of the laws that constrain the rest of us.
