What is the answer to the amount of crime, horrific wrecks and unsolved murders in Paris?? I do not feel any of this is getting the attention it needs. Who is doing anything to stop any of this?? Shouldn't we as citizens demand more from our local government/officials, etc to get a grip on our crime?? Every single day there are more and more drugs arrests. Our city used to be a nice place. Now you drive up and down streets and it looks like the ghetto. What happened to Paris having pride and promoting our town as we have in times past? There should be an initiative for people to clean up and tidy their houses and lots and for the city to get it's priorities back where they should be. Paris is on a really slippery slope and evidently not too many care. It is very sad.

Paris like any small town is still suffering from the economic crisis. It's a small version of Detroit.

I agree. I think it's easier to turn a blind eye than try and come up with a solution that people would agree on. The city is one of the worst offenders of keeping things tidy.

You say there are more and more drug arrests. Doesn't that suggest they ARE doing something about crime? Do you think Paris is the only place that has automobile accidents? Do you suppose people are doing that on purpose?

Why don't you start a "Beautify our Neighborhoods" campaign? If you think you're the only one paying attention to the problems, then you're the logical one to come up with the solution, don't you think?

And you can be her co-chairman on the "Beautify Our Neighborhoods" campaign. That way, no one can ever accuse the two of you of turning a blind eye.

Paris needs a complete change in city council & chief of police. It's been needed for some time now. City council is lame & so is chief. Get rid of all & start over

Just curious -- did you vote in the last City Council election? Have you ever put your name on the ballot?

Paris PD definitely has a wait and watch mentality. They don't seem to actively seek out issues so much as let it fall in they're lap. Unless it is a traffic violation! And no I don't believe in police quotas but I do feel when it comes to real issues in this town the police are very lazy and reluctant to do the job they are hired to do. Often reminds me of the scene in the movie demolition man. When the PD had no clue how to deal with Simon Phoenix and a murder, the solution was to wait for another murder and hope to catch him then, instead of going out and looking for him before he commits another murder. Criminals in this town have no need to fear or hide what they do because until someone calls in to complain, doing half the leg work for the PD, they don't care and even then seem to be annoyed when a citizen reports an issue. Paris PD is becoming the stereotype cops people complain about and it's sad that you can't depend and trust those sworn to "protect and serve!" The new motto should be "to fine and do nothing"

Just curious -- how do you know they're not actively working these crimes? Do they check in with you every time they come across a lead?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out! But let's say that I have had incidences with the PD and nothing was done until the situation was brought before the city council and outside investigators had to be called in because Paris PD practically refused to do anything about a criminal situation that everybody and their dog was aware of

Yes I voted. I vote in every election. The pd is in a sad state of affairs. Ask any officer. It starts at the top & trickles down. So much more could/would be accomplished by a change. There is no motivation with current admin. Same with city council. Limbs still on curbs. Storm was 1st weekend in DECEMBER!! Absolutely NO EXCUSE! Piss poor management in every department in this town & NO ONE CARES!! City manager AND the city council need to be replaced. All anyone has to do is drive around this God-forsaken hellhole & see the apathy. Had a class reunion & no one could believe "how things have gone down so much" in 15 years! Another disgrace is the shape of the streets. They gladly rip them up & then patch with 3/4 of the asphalt need to make the repair. No oversight by ANYONE.

The city is one of the worst offenders. The intersection of 24th & Clarksville has a triangular piece of land on the south side of the intersection. When dick boots was involved with the city it was kept nice & decorated during the holidays. Now it has limbs scattered all over it broken from the storm. Pitiful. Paris should be ashamed. Except that requires effort & we all know there's no effort exerted by the city here

Well, if it went before the council, it must have been public. Fill us in on the details.

Huh? Obviously, there's some sort of disconnect in the educational system.

Just FYI - we had an ice storm in December, and they're just now finishing up the storm debris removal. How long ago did you report the section you're concerned about?
