How about we start cleaning up this neighborhood while we are at it. Just South of Central High School by about 1/4 mile, and across the street.

First we have this guy. Keon Gibson, High Point Street , goes down to Chillicothe and shoots into a house with 5 people inside.

Now we have Richard Robinson of the 400 block of Yale Circle, right around the corner from the other guy, firing a gun then taking off in his black escalade.

We need to root out these problem residents and send them elsewhere. Sounds like the residents near by should be aware and be calling police when they see any suspicious activity at all in the area.

That neighborhood is getting pretty 'dark' with too many Columbus thug transplants. It definitely needs some house cleaning. Did you see the footage of the last guys house? Big old Cadillac Fleetwood in the driveway. Just another fine example of the type of residents we need OUT of our community. Bet they love shopping at the new Big Lots.

Great job officers.

It is up to all our community neighbors to start watching our neighborhoods more closely. See Something....Say Something. Odd behavior, people coming in and out at all hours, folks with no job but are driving escalades, etc., neighbors not wanting anyone to know much about them. The only way we stay ahead of this infestation is to help law enforcement in any way we can to exterminate those currently here and get the word out that this community will not stand for an attempt to be taken over by thugs and low lifes. See Something.....Say Something!

Sell your own house by yourself and stop selling them to knee grows! It's only against the law when a realtor is selling it - you can come up with ANY excuse if you're selling it yourself! Poor Pickerington - overran with the "black fog"! So much for a nice country setting anymore! Damn filthy m o n k e y s!

I wouldn't agree that we are 'overrun', but its way darker than I would like it to be. We definitely need to start filtering them out before it becomes a bigger problem.

And another in the same neighborhood.
