    I live in this neighborhood. Every time we complain about the many homeless people who camp out in this park (which is immediately adjacent to an elementary school park), we hear the same crap. You can’t discriminate. That park is there for everyone. You know what, it actually is NOT there for people to lay around drunk, to have sex under the canopy near the restroom, and now to molest little girls. It would be nice if we could give some thought and priority to regular citizens besides these losers. They are ruining a lot of Fort Collins.
