"Sitting there last night you could see your breath," Brian Sotelo, a Seaside Heights resident who was at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River with his wife and three kids a half-hour before the shelter opened as superstorm Sandy approached last week, told the small press. "At (Pine Belt) the Red Cross made an announcement that they were sending us to permanent structures up here that had just been redone, that had washing machines and hot showers and steady electric, and they sent us to tent city. We got (expletive)."
"The elections are over and here we are. There were Blackhawk helicopters flying over all day and night. They have heavy equipment moving past the tents all night," he said, an apparent reference to the difficulty he and his family - and other camp dwellers - have in trying to relax and get some rest."
Sotelo said "residents" of the tent city have recently become so frustrated with their situation, they are doing all they can to let the outside world know - but are being thwarted at every turn by the powers that be."
"Every time we plugged in an iPhone or something, the cops would come and unplug them."
"Everybody is angry over here. It's like being in prison," he said.
There's more than a little bit of ungratefulness here. Sorry you expected to have a nice warm loaner house provided by someone else, and ended up with a tent. Your family could be living in a cardboard box you know. If you think the help you've gotten is "Expletive", then you're kindly welcome to leave. If it's like being in a prison, then why don't you take your family and head thataway....
Booohooo... bad shit happened, and nobody has given us a free home yet. And they're moving stuff around, and it's hard to get some peace and quiet. And we can't charge our iPhones.. I haven't made a Facebook update in hours!
Quit your whining and do something yourselves...
