Homeowners in a southeast Portland neighborhood were upset to find a note on their front doors Monday morning that singled out people collecting food stamps.
The note reads:
"Dear Reader of This Note,
There are twenty seven people in this neighborhood who vote and receive food stamps. The names of these people are being posted where they can be seen by taxpayers and the neighborhood can decide who is truly in need of food.

River Gibeaut was out walking his dog this morning when he found the notes on his neighbor's porches.
"The weaker people in our society, a good culture takes care of them, they don't degrade them," Gibeaut said.
"To just use a broad brush and put every single person's name up there without really investigating any of the situations, I don't think that's right," neighbor Lauren Davidson said.
