Iv'e noticed over the past 10 years Marion seems to have a lot of Thugs running the streets. Is the H group causing it ? or did Marion build more Public Housing ??

Or is it because the most common sentence for any offense in Williamson County is 24 months probation? Why leave or clean up your act if you will never be punished adequately for the crime committed? Thanks States Attorneys office. Re-elect Garnatti!!

Looks like it started with Katrina, and the status change at Marion FP added to it....Wonder how much federal dough the city got for relocating Katrina refugees...

Probably wasn't the city---more likely Section 8 /HUD landlords.Trouble is, you can't blame them for boosting their bottom line. So the issue of personal responsibility becomes central-if Uncle Sugar pays people for irresponsible behavior, you just get more of it, and, as a bonus, more Dem voters.

Where's your data? I've seen drug dealers go for 40 -60, murderers for life w/o parole, molesters 20 and up, assaults 3-5 etc.I think Garnati and his staff do an OK job.

The problem started with a major demographic shift about 1992 -Garnati had nothing to do with it. Societal breakdown and the culture of poverty fostered by the welfare state is the real culprit.

Typo: the major demographic shift occurred around 2002- not 1992...

The hyphenated-American demographic group that relocated to Marion in the past 10 years brought their thug culture with them. Of course that statement will be called "raaaacist", but it's true.

Amen to that. Look at today's SI article re :hungry kids in Franklin County. Breaks your heart, but we as a society continue to treat the symptoms rather than the problem...in this case, deadbeat, irresponsible parents. If a kid is going hungry and the family is getting welfare, food stamps, free housing, surplus food , free cell phones etc. the parent(s) should be charged with neglect. Take a look around... how many of these bums who are regulars at the free food giveaways, light up an after free dinner cig, drive home in a better car than you have, feed their dogs, go fishing in their bass boats while you work y6our A$$ off, and then sit in front of their flat screen TV watching cable or Dish in their a/c flat that you and I are paying for.And the frightening part of this is that they all get to vote...

The Boyton St Apartments have gone way downhill over the last 12 to 14 years. nce just regular apartments, I believe they became secton 8 and the place has become a ghetto. Trash strewn up and down Boyton in front of those apartments. People in that neighborhood are having their cars and front doors checked almost nightly to look for unlocked doors. If you forget to lock your car, you can bet your last dollar it will likely be ransacked.

I agree. It's amazing to see how many 12-13 yr olds are out at 10pm on a school night with their bikes and just wondering around up and down Court and Main.
