It is amazing we do not have more fires here in Muskegon Hights. There are so many vacant blight houses it is dangerous and unsafe. When is the city going to do something about the houses. Did we not get a grant to take the houses down. We don't need a new park right now. We need safe neighborhood for the children to play in close to home.

I believe that a priest should get involved as well. Most house fires are usually caused by a malevolent spirit, usually because said house was built in an area that disturbs the spirit's peace.

They can't tear down the abandoned houses in that god forsaken ghetto.
If they do, the crackheads, junkies and prostitutes will have no where to go, that is unless you idiots want them to come move to your house, or live in the park so kids will have no where to play for real. I say you guys should leave the houses alone and fosus on building your stupid ghetto park so the g's can play there basketball games.
