My neighbors and I are outraged by the actions of the Orange County Employees Assn. The straw has broken the camel's back. Enough is enough. We read that the city's employee union hired a private detective to interrogate minors without their parents present or presumably without the parents' consent. If this practice is not illegal, it is certainly morally and ethically objectionable.
The OCEA seems to be completely bankrupt of any ethical standards and will stop at nothing, including intimidating minors, to impose its will on the citizens, residents and property owners of Costa Mesa. The city has real problems to solve. There is a need for all parties to work together to resolve these difficult issues.
The actions of the OCEA do not bring people together, rather they make the community more divisive and polarized. They create an atmosphere of hostility, which makes addressing the real problems more difficult or impossible.
