CBS13 reported that a West Sacramento mother of seven put a sign on their family basketball hoop saying, “This neighborhood is full of Karens!”
Raquel Davis said that she had reached her breaking point when a neighbor had a problem with her children and others skateboarding in front of their home on Saturday night.
“I didn’t know it was not okay for kids to be outside skateboarding,” Davis said.
“I felt this is my son’s birthday party. They’re out skateboarding and I guess I was at my final straw. My last thing. I don’t know what to do so I put up the sign,” Davis said.
“So now that it’s with my kids and cops are being called on them, I don’t really know how to resolve this when they’re just skateboarding,” Davis said.
“These folks moved in and it’s basically ‘The Animal House,’ house in the neighborhood,” Bruce Foster, an upset neighbor, said. “There is like no sense of noise control.”
“It’s like there’s a park going on here. This is a neighborhood. It’s not the park. The people that live here did not move next to the park on purpose,” Foster said.
“I don’t know how to turn down boys skateboarding. I mean we’re outside. It’s during the day,” Davis said.
“They need to start recognizing that they have neighbors. That’s what it’s going to take. There’s no other alternative. The neighbors are not going away,” Foster said.
“That’s why I came to this because I don’t know what else to do. I don’t know who’s calling. I keep my kids in past dark. I don’t know what to do,” Davis said.
