A man who used to live in Ville Platte, Louisiana revisited the street he grew up on and says he’s ashamed of the shape that it’s in.
Wayne Meyer shared a video on Facebook showing his disappointment in the unkempt properties on Derouen Street.
“And they have ordinances against this mess, but they not pushing nothing.” – Meyer
Meyer, who now lives in Easton, said he grew up in the area and wanted to show his son where he used to live, but the overgrown grass and boarded up housing left him ashamed.
“This is in town, now. This looks like the woods!” – Meyer
