'Gated' Community in USJ
This has become an unwelcoming trend of late. I thought USJ11 was the end of it until I saw a similar thing in USJ3 yesterday.
It is the responsibilities of our elected reps to bring it up in parliament and state assembly issues of security, not ours. And I understand Hannah has approved these gated communities. For a start, I think she is doing a horrendous job as and elected rep. She's probably good at tai-chi. Hey, if everything is left to the residence to decide, what the hell are you there for??? Go and and debate it in the state assembly or tell your bosses to bring it up in parliament. It has become a trend of USJ resident committees to take up law into thier own hands. No doubt you own your house, but you DO NOT own an inch outside your perimeter fence. You DON'T own the road in front of your property as well. As such, you DO NOT have the right to cordone off the access road.
I understand crime is an issue in our SJ/USJ. There are things like Nwatch and other ways to go about it. And USJ 11 has even went as far as fencing up. You can't do that, man. You do not own anything else other that what is within your perimeter fencing. You do not own the road. If you have a problem with ppl parking their cars opposite of Taipan, go and tell the authorities. Apply so much of pressure until they do something.
More importantly, you are not, by cordoning off access roads, reducing the number of crimes. Maybe in your area but you have indirectly diverted that statistics to other areas. Isn't that being selfish? Is this what people's power is all about? So, it is still the role of the authorities to handle crime. And that's why we have elected reps to do that job. Otherwise, why elect them?
I understand that MPSJ and Bomba does not approve of this road blocks for safety reasons. And of course, the police, our police is ever ready to nod such ideas as long as their workload can be reduced. But as a citizen and resident, I do not approve some other resident limiting my movements. Who are you to tell me where and how I should move around? These are public access roads and I have a stake on it just as much as you do.
The folks in these cordoned areas be prepared. I'm gonna get a few lorries to come and stop at these blocks at midnight and take the Jesus out of your lives with the honking!!! I'm serious. Some of you already know me. So, go ahead and sue me!!!
I have stalled traffic at USJ16 'guard-house' when they first started it. Go ask. I will repeat this thing again. I'm NOT gonna report to some foreigner where and why I'm going to a certain place. I DON'T NEED TO ANSWER TO ANYONE!!! It is my God given right to move freely. If you think I'm wrong, then, you are no better than the ones you point fingers at and call names for restricting you in other things.
my 2 cents worth...
