In a letter to local news station KTRK, the mother wrote:
"Halloween decorations are going too far. Young children should not be exposed to this while walking around the neighborhood."
The children in the neighborhood are generally impressed by the decorations. One young boy in the neighborhood said he thought they were "cool" and that the babies, along with the severed heads and limbs scattered about the lawn are "more different than the normal [Halloween decorations] you see."
"You can see they’re plastic and not real," he continued, "You don’t see bloody babies roaming around, normally."
Greg Pagans, who lives across the street from the zombie family, described the protesting parents as “great neighbors”, but defended his other neighbor’s right to decorate their lawn as they see fit. “I’m completely fine with it” he said, adding, “It’s their yard. They pay their taxes on that yard. It’s hard to keep everybody happy. It’s impossible to keep everybody happy…"If you don’t want to participate, then don’t participate."
Another neighbor remarked, "I don’t find it offensive at all."
