Flooding Brings Out The Trash [PICTURES]

Recent flooding in Acadiana didn’t just bring out the snakes, rats and other creatures indigenous to our area, it also brought out the trash.

For an area that is really proud of it’s heritage, proud of family and love of God, proud of our food and music, we sure do miss the boat on keeping it clean don’t we?  Now I realize most people who read this, are not the one’s littering.  So how do we get those who do, to stop?

There are penalties for littering, but without even looking at the stats on the number of citations written, I would guess it’s not many.  After all, unless people litter in front of a police car, who will ever know?  And even though there is a phone number to call to report litter bugs, how many people actually do?  I have, but how do authorities find the culprit?  And even if they do, how can officials prove they actually did litter?  It becomes the caller’s word against the litterer.

I guess, class starts at home.  Monkey see, monkey do.  Kids grow up seeing mom and dad throwing stuff out the car window, then it must be OK right?

Do rich people litter or is it just middle class and poor people who do?  Are they young or old?  Do they live in River Ranch or in a mobile home park?

Whoever you are, littering is not classy or cute.
