What about ordinary people’s rights? | Letter

We want to express our agreement to the “Counterpoint to guest editorial” (Reporter Aug. 25) by Roger Clarke-Johnson of Kirkland.

He made a good point on unfair treatment to different groups among our society. Compassion of the public to a ”vulnerable” group is taken as entitlement and privilege. Where is the right of ordinary people who want to have a safe, quiet living environment?

If our public officials still insist on setting up the “safe injection facilities,” then we suggest the sites to be in city halls or county council chambers or county executive offices, so our politicians have the firsthand experience of the program.
