    Trying to keep up with the West side? Or, is it the other way around? Regardless, the bad guys are running both areas pretty much the same these days so keeping score is difficult.

      Fox 17 report the shooting on Stocking and Sixth?That area should be torn down.Some black chasing another down the street,shoots him.

        Instead, certain city leaders have turned this into negativity against our police department and made it into a race issue. Blow smoke and don’t place the blame where it actually belongs….

    …amd you wonder how much gunplay ISN’T reported.When a woman was killed on Lincoln and Bridge,a neighbor went on TV and said he heard gunfire the previous week.I’ve heard many news stories –concerning people shot–that AFTER THE FACT–say gunshots are heard regularly in their blocks.Point is,the city is much worse than is being reported.And when crimes ARE reported,the minorities do not cooperate with police.Similar to organized crime-type rules,the minorities copied:Hit squads,drive bys and don’t snitch if you get shot.The NEW West Side–same as the old Southeast side,thanks to allowing the area to be swept over by thugs.Building new low Income housing is NOT a solution ,Mayor.
