An Oregon man records a TikTok video about an ongoing situation where his neighbors have an RV parked next to his residence at 157th Ave and Stark. He is fed up with politicians that aren't helping the citizens of Portland to clean up the neighborhoods.

An upset veteran from Southeast Portland is fed up with neighbors that leave an RV out on the street and another SUV that has "drug paraphernalia" across the street from the RV. He says it is a safety concern and continues to go on without any solution from the city of Portland.

Portland Veteran Fed Up with Ongoing Neighborhood Situation

He said in a TikTok video posted by 'pdxreal1' on 29 May 2023:

"I work 60 to 80 hours a week and I come home and I have to live next to a [expletive] RV with trash on top of it and next to a vehicle with drug paraphernalia in the [expletive] seat, and I'm tired of it. I'm tired of hearing Ted Wheeler get on every news station and say that he understands our pain. To say that he understands where we're coming from, no, we want action. We're tired of understanding.
I'm a United States military disabled veteran. I fought for this country. I bled for this country. I've given every single thing that I have to be right where I am and I don't have much but I work my [expletive] off to get it...but it's about them imposing their will on us.
I take care of my family. I don't bother anybody. I don't mess with anybody. I don't have an ill will for anybody, but I should not have to go to work every single day and come home and worry. I'm worried, I am worried that the child that is inside of this RV is potentially going to blow up because there is a [expletive] propane tank and open electrical wires going a hundred feet down the [expletive] block, and our government here in Portland doesn't seem to think that that matters.
They'll respond when it blows up and catches on fire." (Source: @pdxreal1 on TikTok)
