Stop the blame

An appeal to end accusations of theft without proof.

Dear editor,

My name is Keith. I’m the character with the motorized bicycle and trailer, the guy with the too-friendly dog. I live on my boat at Fisherman’s Wharf.

In the past few months I have been accused of stealing someone’s bait, not picking up after my dog, and, yesterday, Sept 11, of stealing a wallet and bicycle.

I am tired. Tired of the harassment; tired of being accused of things I didn’t do; tired of feeling scared and intimidated.

I have to do something to try to alleviate this problem so I’m putting out this letter. I publicly give permission for the RCMP to search my boat with or without a warrant or warning. With or without a complaint.

I have nothing to hide and I’m tired of feeling threatened and accused. I am not going anywhere, I’m going to stay right where I am, but the intimidation has to stop.
