I am not a fan of gated communities, but the residents are still citizens, they are still tax-payers. You don't want to contribute to repairing or protecting their private property, but you don't object to repairing and protecting the private property of those who do not live in gated communities.

If their streets are not public streets, why should public money pay to repair them?

If my tax money went to repair them, I think I'd have a right to expect to be able to use them afterwards. Ergo, they couldn't be private any more.
