|Do not try to clean up this picture.|
Keep it trashy, Belle Glade.
Try to pick up trash in this Palm Beach County city and you might be threatened by the long arm of the law. According to a story reported by News Channel 5
, the efforts of a concerned citizen to clean up trash-infested
neighborhoods in Belle Glade were shunned Wednesday by the mayor and
The man, Hydn Rousseau, was told
he could be charged with criminal trespassing if he continued his
organized neighborhood cleanup group made up of 50 volunteers. Their
goal: to fight crime by working to beautify local neighborhoods in need
of a little TLC.
Rather than be lauded for his
efforts to clear away unsightly debris -- stuff we'd never think to
touch, like needles and buckets of stagnant garbage -- Rousseau was asked
to leave the littered private properties alone.
So much for trying to do a good deed.
