Feels two sides to the story

Re. Evicted over privacy screen (Castanet, Jan. 25)

There are always two sides to every story and more to every story than meets the eye.

According one of the tenants, Kevin Johnson, “It's a material cover that goes over the rails so that light can't get through, or dirt because it comes up from the road. It was just to protect my eyes from the glare of the light coming off the windshields or at night from the lights of the cars because I have had three surgeries to my left eye. It has glaucoma.”

It appears the landlord tried to accommodate them and move them to another unit but it appears these tenants dug their heels in, knowing the rules but insisting on their right to do want they want despite that, and then wondered why they were evicted.

It is more than just a screen issue, and people need to see that.

I would have taken the landlords offer and moved. Why would you want the dirt and light coming into your unit and traffic noise anyway?

It’s a no-brainer to me.
