People should have a neighborhood watch in every neighborhood.These creeps are getting brazen enough to walk right up and shoot you on your own property.It's time these lunatics get a taste of own medicine and get same treatment in return.

E 55th would look a lot better if you would stop standing on the corners of it. A woman your size really shouldn't be wearing a tube top and booty shorts.

And she SHOULD be wearing her teeth and wig.

Because, innocent people could be affected and who know when they will decide to branch out into your neighborhood...sjt

The demise of a neighborhood spread out faster and wider than a virus. It's truly sad rolling through Goodyear Heights, North Hill, etc. Once beautiful homes and properties look like they were plucked out of a third world country. My in-laws just sold their home only four or five years ago. It was beautiful. We drove by on Sunday, I was so shocked and appalled. The once meticulately manicured yard was riddled with debri, junk and pieces of the siding. Two of the upstairs windows were covered in wood planks. Those were brand new windows that she installed just before selling the home. The houses to the right, to the left and across the street, all mirrored images of their former home. It's disgusting and appalling. The one home had their garbage stacked four feet high by approximately eight feel long on their front slab/patio. No pride, no dignity, no self-worth to be found.

As harsh a comment as yours is ,Howard ; it is just as true as well....I'm in many homes throughout the Tri-County area and at times amazed at the filth some people are willing to live in and also raise their children....and as you said, animals would have cleaner abodes....and that is what those kids see as "normal"....it's sad, but true....and that's black or white....

Innocent people are affected in these neighborhoods. Not all people in these areas are degenerate hoodlums. These acts of violence and degradation of the property of others performed by angry, ignorant, drug-crazed,(I could keep going)individuals affect so many. Not only are they hurting themselves, their actions form a snowball effect, hurting the victim, affecting police, insurance companies, the legal system, prisons, neighbors, loved ones, family, etc.
One small act can hurt so many. But some people are too blind and self absorbed to see it, or even care.

Good post. That's what I was saying when I said innocent people are affected.

The "move to other areas" was an add-on...sjt

Admittedly, I only scratched the surface with my comment. I figured all the intelligent people (you included) would understand how wide spread this has the potential of being..Thank you for elaborating...sjt

When are we, as a civilized society, finally going to say "ENOUGH"?

The recall sends this message loud & clear. Should Sponge Don return from his little illicit honeymoon and mount some proactive plan upon the hoodrats and their increased lawlessness, it would obviously do much to diffuse the mounting threat to his political career.

I'm betting he does nothing to improve the safety and quality of life in those neighborhoods. Other than blow the usual smoke and place more blame on the cops. We'll see. Prove me wrong, Sponge.

So should you, fellow Akronite.
