The real problem is that he's taking jobs away from unionized county employees. You know the ones, when you drive by them on the highway, there's one guy digging a hole with a shovel and four guys supervising him.

@Gerry1of1 You can not honestly believe that. I hope you're just trolling. UGH!

"People make their own ghettos."

No, you know what makes a ghetto?!

An unresponsive government that doesn't enforce it's own laws about how a property should be kept! An unresponsive government that takes it's residents tax money, but doesn't do anything for them.

Also in the running:

Crappy school systems

Crappy law enforcement agencies

I applaude the idea of what he's doing,

but you cannot go on someone else's property and cut down the trees without permission of the owner.

As for all the trash there, the neighborhood people put it there so don't blame the city or the
absentee property owners.

People make their own ghettos.

the lawyers are responcible for this mess. there is no recourse for you in most neighborhoods if you live near neglected property. I am all for property rights, (despite the fact i only rent) But if you cant be bothered to take care of your land, you dont deserve it, and if your neglect starts to create an unsafe or criminal environment for the comunity, it should be taken from you.

but what do I know? I'm just a renter.

And just to be clear, I don't have a problem with what this guy did. It's great. I have a problem with the disingenuous way it was presented. Obviously, there's more to the story they're not telling us.

And one more thing....

"Ha ha! I bet if he wasn't one of the scary brown people, none of his words or actions would be questioned."

Yeah, if a white person said they're only out to help other white people in a publicly broadcast interview, that would go over just peachy.

"Ha ha! I bet if he wasn't one of the scary brown people, none of his words or actions would be questioned. LOOK OUT PASTY-ASSED WHITE BOYS! THEY'RE AFTER YOUR TREEEEEEES!"

Hey, I just don't want to hear a bunch of whining about BRAAACCCISSSMM!!! next time I say "you people". After all, this guy has pretty well established that I'm not one of "your people".

Oh, for pete's sake! He cut some trees down, so that makes his actions questionable? One guy says he wants to help "His people" and this bothers you?

The man cleaned up some neglected properties because the city wouldn't do anything about it. Where I live you would lose your property if you didn't clean it up because you would be fined so much for it being a health hazard. Where I live we also have a lot of immigrants who helped out "their people", including Germans, Irish, Poles, Italians, Hatians, Puerto Ricans, and Brazilians.

Ha ha! I bet if he wasn't one of the scary brown people, none of his words or actions would be questioned. LOOK OUT PASTY-ASSED WHITE BOYS! THEY'RE AFTER YOUR TREEEEEEES!

"Well, hold on a second. From what the kid said, it sounds like he cut down someone else's trees. That's not cool."

Caught that too. Rule #1: Whenever you see a news story that sounds too over the top to be true, look deeper, it probably is. I seriously doubt this guy is in troube for picking up trash.

I also liked the part where the one guy said "I'm trying to help me and my people." Just wondering who "his people" are. Am I included?

Well, I think there is now going to be a new mayoral candidate in the next race...and he could (and should) win.

Too bad that the people want to reclaim the area that they live in. Same as any disaster area. Emergency crews show up late, leave early and leave a mess for the residents to clean up at their expense or the govt will bill them to clean up. WTF was the emergency fund for and where are the funds that all the shady charities collected that are govt protected? Where is the money? Well then let the people that live there take back their streets by cleaning it up. Screw the city rules. You won't clean it up and enforce your own rules ? Then we will. The people only want a clean , safe place to raise their families. is that to much to ask? And now the powers that be arrest people because they did not follow the rules. Interesting that it took several years of the property owners and the city to not follow the "RULES" , but took less than a few days for the city to respond to someone trespassing and removing garbage. PEOPLE ! If there were at least 1000 people like this man all over
