Another trick-or-treating SO

They talked about this on the local radio show this morning. Poor, unfortunate doctors and lawyers who aren't quite as rich as the billionaires a street over are pissed about the poor kids coming to mooch free candy off of them. Because they pay property taxes, dammit, those kids don't know their struggle! 

What an asshole, and I was disgusted by the people agreeing that the "ghetto kids" need to stay in their own neighborhood, or if their mom could afford the gas to get there she could just buy them a bag of candy, or "I'm just not giving candy to anyone anymore because I don't want it to go to the 8 Mile kids dressed like street walkers."

    Wow. This blows my mind. Might it have occurred to them that their parents take them to the nice neighborhood to trick-or-treat because it's a safe area? Probably well-lit and whatnot. 

    They're really going to begrudge a little kid coming to get candy on a holiday cuz they're not part of the special elitist neighborhood? Gross.

    Poor kids don't deserve candy, duh. Go back to your poor neighborhoods and trick or treat for blunts with the rest of your kind, because obviously you're all on the drugs. Maybe your dad can take you; do you know who your dad is?

    And the rich or rural kids who live in houses far apart from each other don't deserve the experience of trick or treating. Trick or treating is only for upper-middle class suburbanites whose parents can afford to give lots of candy and dress them in elaborate costumes. But not too rich that they attract any scourges.

    I read that Slate column, but there were already 30,000 comments on it.
    Given Slate's slant, I almost wonder if it was MUD just to stir up trouble. 

    I was one of the kids growing up in the country, so of course my mom took me trick-or-treating to neighborhoods in town, normally with my friends who already lived there.  

    Given how cheap candy is, I think lawyers and doctors can easily afford several bags. 

    Heck, I even saw an article this morning that asked people not to begrudge teenagers not wearing costumes, because "they didn't realize how badly they're rather trick-or-treat than be seen as cool."

    Even if the letter was MUD, there were plenty of people on the radio station's FB post about it agreeing with the premise.

    Even if this letter is MUD, douchebags exist.

    I will give candy to any kid who looks like they put effort into a costume. 

    But I'll be honest, at the risk of having my house vandalized I've turned away older kids who come in jeans and a sweatshirt saying "I'm a high schooler". WOW! You sure are - and you're too old to be trick or treating, especially w/o a costume. Bye now.

    Ok I'm about to be ripped apart but I agree with the doctors and the lawyers to an extent. I grew up in a newer housing development in the nice area of town. Halloween our neighborhood turned into a parking lot because we were labelled as having the good candy.

    I won't go as far as them and be upset about the income of the people migrating to our neighborhood. And I understand not everyone lives somewhere you can trick or treat. But don't drive past 4 nice neighborhoods because you want even better.

    My biggest issue was that I feel like it became unsafe there were car In and out all night, most of them parked illegally and blocked in residents. And the amount of trash the next day was ridiculous.

    I understand being grumpy about trash and illegally parked cars, but that's not the kids' fault. When they come to your door, all they know is that it's a holiday designed for giving out candy, and they want to participate. I doubt the little ones are yelling, "keep driving, I want the king-size Snickers!"
