Holy déjà vu, Batman! Looking at today’s report on levittownnow.com about a camper fire that occurred Sunday night at a used car dealership near Edgely Road and Route 13, Bristol, PA maybe in the same area where vehicles burned as a result of a fiery temper a little more than a year ago. http://levittownnow.com/2018/11/26/camper-where-homeless-stayed-destroyed-by-fire/
This fire did not do the damage that the fire that happened April 12, 2017. http://levittownnow.com/2017/04/12/police-charge-homeless-woman-vehicle-arson-car-dealership-route-13/
After last year’s fire, where a homeless woman was charged with arson, evidently the dealership, which had graciously allowed people who were homeless to sleep there, no longer had the dealer’s permission to stay there. Unfortunately, it just takes one miscreant to ruin a good thing for others. Being homeless is no excuse for such behavior – a fiery temper. Self-control is one of the fruits of the spirit.
The woman with the fiery temper didn’t behave that way because she was homeless. When particular individuals cause havoc, it sends a negative message about the homeless towards narrow minded people as well as penalizes innocent people in the homeless community.
Now I don’t blame the dealership for not allowing the homeless to camp in vehicles in their lot. And the miscreant who caused the camper fire ruins it for those who have nowhere else to go, and who act responsibly.
The Bucks establishment doesn’t want to help create an official homeless community, where there are rules, and troublemakers can’t create havoc. I delve into this subject in my book “There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey With The Homeless.” Available on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/dp/172865209X/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_U_.iX9BbZXM6842?fbclid=IwAR0gPVr_CAM7L0hyxu92hll8KTsLWTUmr1nIEamgTnuc_Hi4yDafBYGcMqs
