Suburban Atlanta prepares for the worst
A gated community near Atlanta has decided to step up security this week. The reason is not burglaries, but another issue entirely: the presidential election.
In Woodstock, Ga., about 30 miles north of Atlanta, the president of a homeowners’ association sent an e-mail on Sunday informing residents that the entrance gates would be closed 24 hours a day beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, out of concern over possible civil unrest after the election.
“I feel it is better to take a position of caution to enhance controlled access to the community until we see what (if any) negative repercussions may occur because of the results of the election,” wrote Bill Stanley, the president of the homeowners’ association at the Cottages of Woodstock, a residential community for people 55 and over.
The entrance gates have been open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during various construction projects. Mr. Stanley said the gates would be closed round the clock until next Monday – “if all goes well.”
Woodstock is northwest of Atlanta heading to the Alabama and Tennessee borders and is a dark red portion of a very red state - wonder who they are afraid may be acting up - geriatric Romney supporters crazed with grief over 4 more years of life under the Kenyan Socialist?
