As I was laying my children down to sleep, pow,pow,pow,pow,pow. I got them to lay completely flat in their beds because I was not sure how close they were and I called the police and they said they have already been called about it and hung the phone up. I wonder how long it took the police to get over here and if anyone was hurt. We need to start reporting these things and maybe one day we can make a differene.

What a cesspool this town is. It is a sad, sorry, pitiful shell of a once nice place to live. What a shame. The coons have ruined it beyond the point of no return.

If that 1 cent tax brings in extra monies let's use that for a reward program to stop theft in the 'Ville. If the offender is non-imprisonabl(no county stay) because of technical-difficulties because you used polymer, lead and copper with various propellants to impede escape. Maybe if you shoot a thief 5 times they will give you a box of 50 HPJ to replace?

I think that we all seem to point the finger at the easiest target. It is my belief that the drug users,(crack heads, meth heads, coke heads, heroin users, etc.), drug distributors,(large dealers, small dealers, the corner boys) are the LARGEST PROBLEM in this town.

Clean up this problem, and we can begin to rebuild a town in which we can all be proud to live.

I think it is punk kids that have watched to much TV and played to many video games. Problem is those kids have no father at home and absent mothers. It is a cycle that will take 25 years to cure

These kids are not at home watching TV and playing Xbox . They are out in the streets everyday doing what they only know to survive which is selling drugs and robbing . You think their crack head parents go buy them the new black op ? These kids do not have food in the fridge their crack head momma sells all her foodstamps for CRACK !!! The kids are growing up in survive mode and each generation is a worse than the last . They don't respect human life , why should they ? They are growing up in a living hell. I guess one thing would be surprise drug test for the welfare crack head .

The thugs shooting these guns thinks it's funny! THEY DONT CARE! we need a weapons task force. Like maybe put some military on the street. I feel like if you kill.. You Should be killed! If you steal... You lose your hands! The laws and the justice system protect the criminal! Not the victims.

bobby jr, You are correct. Our children are being raised in broken families. I am focused on TWO THINGS.
BOTH point toward society's moral decay:

First, DRUG USERS and SELLERS are at the center of our CRIME, both white and black. Stop drugs and drug crimes.

Second, broken families is the result of government directed welfare programs. In America during the early 1960's, the marriage rate in the black American population was startlingly HIGHER than the marriage rate with white Americans.
Why the change, WELFARE REGULATIONS. And today, the NON MARRIED, single parent rate in BLACK AMERICA is enormous.

This, the need for a family unit, is something we all need to question..... This SOCIAL PROBLEM has been a byproduct of government regulations that NEED TO BE CHANGED....NOW. And we, you, me, our government, not wait thirty more years to recognized something so fundamentally simple. We need to FIX WELFARE.

Most of these moochers do not realize that the ones doling out their free checks are actually living off them.
Most of these so called social programs for the betterment of the poor have a manager that is sucking off a huge salary and living very well off the people they say they are trying to help.. No different than our very own local city leaders...free vehicles, fuel, huge salaries all at our expense..then they hire extra leeches such as Elroy Brown, give him an ASSISTANT on our payroll and free medical benefits....All these Parasites should be run out of our town, including the illustrious, lying MAYOR and R. L. Jones and the whole crew.

I remember growing up in Blytheville and never having to worry about somebody robbng you or if the person walking towards you has a gun or not and what do they have on their mind. It would be nice to have that back. Until these parents start actimg like parents and get a grip on their children this will never be possible.

Most are NOT Parents. They are just breeders living off the money they take on behalf of the children.
