    I know the trailer park this happened in. Its a small park with 5 or 6 trailers that caters to illegals in SoPines. It is just another example of a trashy trailer park dumped in the middle of a nice neighborhood. If someone dares to call the owner out they will be labeled racist. Even though the neighborhood is mixed and everyone knows the problems arent related to race. It's money, or lack of, that is the problem in the neighborhoods. Illegals shouldn't be allowed to scar our neighborhoods like this.
