I don't it is just sad we have corrupt city leaders and citizen not caring and people leaving by the 100's everyday and town turning to slums and garbage. The city leaders all need be impeached. Richmond has never been like this. So much poverty, drugs, crime and so many people leaving and town with so much blight or abandon property every where and all we have for jobs in minimum wage jobs or temp jobs taken over. Town is in a serious mess and going get worse unless something serious happens. we have idiots galore in this town that clueless. I had a Facebook page to help save Richmond and no body contributed or cared but bitch and complained. I had for 1 year and thee was another guy that had a radio station on the internet called Radiotroy and he also gave up.

I wish we had people that cared and had good leaders and jobs not disappearing and so much poverty and hardly any goods jobs here anymore. Old people and making Richmond in a retirement town will not cute for people to be successful in Richmond. I could go all day on the BS that goes on in this dying depressing do nothing town. No taxes base $7 million in low income housing and not one sold and a lot have be vandalized and why did they build in a bad area for?? Sally Hutton, Phil Quinn and Valarie Shaffer are a joke as leaders. I no so many people that have left and that are so much happier. also what happen to the train depot revitalization down there. I here they ran out of money and begging for grant money. All I no I am sick off it and have almost gave up on this shit hole of a town.

I hear you and agree with a large part of what you are saying with that said do you think things would different if we had a police force (county and city and for that matter state) that actually focused on crime like murder and robbery instead of traffic fines and minor violations that make their organizations millions of dollars? because the real crimes cost money to solve in other words it don't pay them to do stakeouts and catch criminals in fact it is what our tax dollars pay for they have hired more police than our tax dollars will pay for so they turned our police force into a traffic squad what do you think i'm curious? if we stopped focussing on traffic to make money which is a hidden tax on this community and police patrolled our neighborhoods even low income would our town and county be better off?

No we need good paying jobs, better work force, get rid of temp services taken over Richmond and all the ghetto abandon property and impeach and fire the corrupt City Goverment that are clueless here. I feel it may be to late to save Richmond in the very poor no taxes base city of a town. I think crime is do to dispear, no pride in the city anymore and people giving up on the city. Richmond has never ever been this bad ever. We will need start over with new people that cared and a miracle to put Richmond back on the map no not Richmond Virginia. Does anybody even no who Richmond Indiana is or where it is located.

One guy Michael Allen a community organizer is trying to raise $400,000 to tear down these ghetto slum properties all over town.$400,000 would do nothing to this eyesore of a town. Very sad we can't have pride in are city anymore and be proud to live here and make a good living here. I no so many people that left and are so much happier away from this depressing do nothing city.

Michael Allen a community Organizer said where in serious mess and there is some more deeper problems for Richmond and may be to late to make Richmond a good city to live here anymore.

wow! I don't know sounds like you are planning to run for office or something? if you really want to get right down to it the one thing responsible for the demise of Richmond is N.A.F.T.A. this country elected a gov't full of corporate politicians and they voted to kill this country that's it and that's all and the usual suspects downtown have been trying to deal with it ever since but seriously I don't want to throw them that big of a bone they cater to the well to do down there too instead of working on the parts of town that need help the most as for my personal crusade I feel this is not the time to have a traffic squad putting pressure on this community these people are barely scraping by and have plenty of pressure on them as it is without the sheriff Nottinghams taxes taking groceries from their children mouths for the sake of having a inflated police force I think we could afford to lay off at least 40 % of law enforcement and we could save a ton of tax dollars and on top of that instead of a ticket squad we have crime fighters and the citizens would instead of paying the courts millions they could pay their bills and feed their kids I mean your driving down the road on your way to work and one of your taillight bulbs blow on the piece of crap that you could barely afford to buy plate and insure just to get you to work at your 8 dollar per hour job the next block barney sacks you that ticket cost 175.00 now your struggling to make bills and feed your kids (it's just that tight)I believe that if another motorist pulls up and says "hey your tail light is out " they will fix it asap that's not worthy of a 175.00 tax that is just how I feel I would rather have that tail light out and my police dept focus on crime
