I have lived in C.I. for 10 years- Today I was shopping at the Solo 99 Cents shopping center around 3:30pm and noticed as many as 12 seedy characters hanging out on a bench in front of CVS. Drug dealing was going on in broad daylight! People were coming out of cars..no teeth..no bra and joined they crew on this bench. I know bootleg CD sales were going on there..now I guess anything goes? My question is was a bench placed there? It is not a park or a bus stop- another question is where are the police- the transit police station is right across the street!!! The police do not see what is going on here??? I know C.I. has it's issues- but all in all had been a nice place to live and raise a family- I enjoy going to this shoping center and fear that it will soon be a "no-go" because of safety. Anyone else see this?

We are working on the area as we speak many have been caught on sight already placing heavy trasactions. All actions have been reported to the 3rd pct.

Yes I see them hanging there and its a bit scary because they block the store fronts and they are there drinking and smoking. It's both men and women hanging there and for real some of them have no teeth. It's a bit intimidating when you need to go into the hair store. They have been hanging out there even before CVS moved across the street and it's not even young boys it's mainly grown people

It's funny because this not only happens in CI but in other towns too. My boyfriend is a cop and he says there are more drugs in the surrounding towns than in CI. they should not be hanging out there but no one has ever bothered me while shopping in the stores. If someone bothers you call the cops.....

I moved to CI in 1992 when I won a lottery for first time home buyers. With the way CI is, I do not consider myself a winner. This place is a shit hole!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING ON THE AREA??? I HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE 1992 - BIGGEST MISTAKE I MADE WAS BUYING A COLLEGE WOODS HOUSE. COPS SLEEP BEHIND THE FIRE HOUSE...NOT ON PATROL...GREAT SIX-FIGURE JOB THEY HAVE! TO CLEAN UP ANY TOWN THE CITIZENS MUST DO IT THEMSELVES - AND IF THAT MEANS BEING A "DIRTY HARRY" OR "CHARLES BRONSON" CHARACTER, SO BE IT!

Bitter because you or a loved one got dropped.
