Whats going to be done about this one? Why should my tax dollars be used to support this mess? Why should we be forced to put up with this any longer?

In response to, enough is enough. I am a single mother of a special needs child, living in Saxon Village. I work at a local hospital part time but I am extremely low income. I PAY MY TAXES TOO!!! I don't like the crime either obviously but I love Tallmadge and I really like the school district. People that write comments like the one above, are ignorant. It is because we are not out helping our community in the places that need it most. Instead, we sit back and complain about it. News flash!!! Its not getting better complaining and just watching it happen. I personally plan on starting by doing little things in my building like donating laundry detergent for the residence to use. A little bit goes a long way to those in need. I DONT FEEL YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO COMMENT ABOUT SUFFERING UNTIL YOU'VE LIVED IT. You're SUFFERING with falling property values. We're suffering with poverty, hunger, keeping food in the fridge. There are good people that live here. I pray that you get a little wisdom. I am blessed and fortunate to live here and I cant deny that crime has increased here, but there is unrest all over the world and I'll reiterate that it will not get better just staring.
