PART 1: "A Positive Impact..."

The Charleston Living AIDS Memorial Garden (LAMG), located on the corners of Sidney Avenue and East Washington Street, officially opened to the general public in December 1998. For over 15 years, the Garden has continuously served as a sacred, beautiful, living horticultural tribute to all HIV+/AIDS-infected individuals (and especially West Virginians)-- both those whom have passed away, and those who are continual survivors of the virus.

Locally, the LAMG has also been recognized as a highly successful and ever-expanding premier, Christmas holiday attraction in Charleston's Historic East-End District. Its trees, fencing and garden elements are meticulously woven each year with rows of color-coordinating solid and flashing Christmas lights, live spruce garlands are carefully draped on bordering metal fences, lush ribbons decorate trees and bushes, and animated sculpture figures welcome visitors at the main Garden entrance. LAMG's Christmas display rivals that of even the State Capitol and Governor's Mansion annual Christmas lighted attraction, which is located a few blocks away on Kanawha Boulevard.

Since when does our tax dollars have to go to guard a spot for queers to congregate? That eyesore attracts the homeless and the drug addicts along with the alcoholics and in my opinion should not only be removed, but it should have never been built. It was those type people who gave the world aids.

PART 4: "A Final Resolve..."

o Permanently Close McDonald's:

In direct response to the rapid acceleration of crimes in the Historic East-End created by McDonald's during the past three years, a city-wide campaign has been recently launched by Charleston citizens to legally close and tear down the East-End McDonald's, and reopen public bidding for a new, non-fast-food restaurant to be established in its place.

A class-action lawsuit is also being discussed with amongst numerous lawyers, WV Congressmen, City officials, and homeowners and businesses to sue the McDonald's Corporation for damages caused to the LAMG, and the growing devaluation of surrounding Charleston properties cause by McDonald's presence in the Charleston Historic East-End community.

I'm really confused here.. Is McDonald's a code word for blacks? If so that makes total sense. If not you must be some kind of nutcase.

PART 2(a): "A Destructive Restaurant..."

Sadly to the ongoing detriment of the LAMG, the corporate-managed McDonald's, located at 1626 East Washington Street (immediately connecting to the Garden), has served as the epidemical breeding grounds for numerous criminals to desecrate the Living AIDS Memorial Garden on a daily basis. Since being allowed building permission in 2011 by the City of Charleston, McDonald's presence has polluted and degraded the LAMG and immediate surrounding areas of the Historic State Capitol East-End District, with its rapid influx of criminals and unlawful offenders of every kind.

Drug dealers, drug users, assaulters, prostitutes, thieves, violent mental retards, vandals, drunkards, panhandlers, and street bums continuously trespass in, and destroy and litter the Garden, as well as plaguing the East-End McDonald's restaurant itself since its official opening. Crime in the Charleston's Historic East-End District, generated directly by this McDonald's, grows increasingly worse with each passing month:

YES, YOU A-R-E TRULY CONFUSED! Get back on your medications, you mental retard! No, it's CLEARLY not CODE for BLACK people, you racist, white-trash, ignorant, hillbilly inbred! WHERE DOES THE TOPIX WRITER EVER MENTION RACE, CREED, COLOR, OR GENDER IN HIS/HER ARTICLES??? You must truly hate black people just by inferring McDonald's is ONLY for/about BLACK people!!

Learn to read what is CLEARLY in front of you, ignoramus!! The entire article is simply about a memorial garden being desecrated by different types of criminals which have flooded the same AFTER McDonald's was built. This restaurant has OBVIOUSLY increased criminal activity in the surrounding community, which has spilled over into the lovely Garden next door!

Geez, learn to read you idiot!!!

Police Found the Joint

United States

The first drug buyer is described as a very chunky, black female, fashionably dressed who first entered the Garden alone and waited for the drug dealer at the third picnic table to appear. She is approximately 5'4" in height, and was recorded wearing a tight, grey shirt-blouse and dark blue designer jeans. She carried a large black bag with metallic decorative embellishments, and had white iPhone earphones in her ears. Both she and the drug dealer who later joined her were also recorded illegally sharing a Busch Light beer from a blue and silver can.

The second drug buyer is described as an extremely unattractive, skinny, small black woman who was shaking and rambling loudly in her speech when she arrived at the LAMG. She was mostly 'skin-and-bones' and clearly appeared to be either drunk or under the influence of a narcotic drug like crack. She was approximately 5'0" in height and wore a tight turquoise blouse when she joined the drug dealer and first drug buyer inside the Garden.

Anyone who possess any additional information about this crime, or knows the whereabouts of any of these three criminals should contact the Metro Drug Enforcement Unit of the CPD immediately! You may remain completely anonymous if you so choose.

Police Found the Joint

United States

#19 Aug 14, 2014
Approximately two weeks ago, an informant in the LAMG successfully recorded a drug sale of marijuana at the third picnic table area inside the Garden. The marijuana joint was stupidly dropped by the buyer during the exchange and the CPD successfully recovered the same later after the drug seller and two buyers fled the Garden upon arrival of the police.

The crime took place on Friday, August 1, 2014 at approximately 7:40pm during the MultiFest event.

An arrest warrant has now been issued for all three of the criminals. The drug dealer is described as a very dark, short male about 5'8" tall wearing a dirty, ragged T-shirt, a black-and-red sports cap, blue jeans, and matching black-and-red sneakers.

You should educate yourself on HIV/AIDS. The disease does not discriminate between race, ethnicity, political preference, gender, religious preference, sobriety, or sexual preference. You should also try to become a nicer person.

They keep promoting aids with the rights there constantly giving gays. Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. We've done it to ourselves allowing the gays to populate!

AIDS is not GAY ONLY. Gay people did not give birth to the disease. Gay people technically cannot populate. What you just said makes absolutely no sense. No one promotes AIDS. It is isn't a celebrated disease and has absolutely nothing to do with the promotion of gay rights.

Keep up the great job CPD and informants protecting the Garden! Check the surrounding slum area apartments right behind that BP/ 7-11 store in the immediate area since several of those black drug dealers have a great many customers living there.
