It was no secret

The barricade that was erected at the intersection of Alaminos and Benz roads is another example of individuals who want the government to bail them out when they make poor decisions.

No one forced anyone to purchase a home on Benz.

Every homeowner who purchased a home in the area knew that when Copper Hill was completed, Benz would intersect with it. That day came and, surprise, so did the traffic.

Mr. Natoli and the other Benz homeowners complained to the City Council and presented a petition they circulated, demanding that the city correct the "problem."

Our spineless City Council looked at the petition (majority signed by Benz residences), rolled over and gave into Mr. Natoli and his posse.

Initially, restricted turns on Benz and Copperhill were put in place to reduce the amount of traffic. The majority of the homeowners in the area, while not happy with the restriction, went along.

Obviously, that was not good enough for Mr. Natoli, so now we have the "Ghetto Barricade."

Is this not similar to homeowners who purchase houses next to an airport and then demand the city to move the airport?
