I am so thankful that a few slumlords in Ripley built all the low income housing for folks from other areas to move into. Washington street looks like skid row with all the vagrants and beggars. Thank you so much for ruining our town. Constant milling and walking up and down the street. Looks like the hunger games
You got that right

Washington Street looks like skid-row. Don't know if any of you folks remember the skid-row that was up just off the square years ago. Well, it has moved to the new beautiful square and down washington street now. The city did a good job of making a great place for all the bumbs and thugs to hang out. You've got to be careful when you drive down washington street, you could run over someone in the blink of an eye. They don't mind staying in the street and looking at you like your nuts for driving in their new play ground.

I've seen youths wandering all hours of the night (w/o the cops ever telling them to go home or asking for some ID). They'll walk in the middle of the road and they want you to have to slow down or stop (to rob you?). Of course if you bumped one they'd want to sue. Cops need to clean this crap up!

The sad part is it seems no one elected even cares. If they do they sure arent communicating it to the rest of us

EAstland is as bad. I usually throw my shift to N, gun the engine, and watch them scatter as I also have my phone to my ear. I am a mean old woman...these punks are not going to impede my destination. If they shoot, i will shoot back.
The last time they threw rocks, I went straight to City Hall and a cop came back with me...talk about punks running like roaches...

It might help if the cops came through in an unmarked car and watched to see if they did this crap. If they stood in the road then the cops could hit their lights and siren. That might give 'em a scare but I'm afraid the cops are too lazy or scared to do it.

We need some bad-arse cops around here! The kind that won't take sh*t off these little punks!

You got that right. Jefferson too! Most of the main streets in Ripley have been ruined with property values destroyed. It is such a shame to see once wonderful homes, with middle-class families living. I grew up around the Highland, Eastland areas (a LONG time ago). Now you don't even recognize the streets.

Its also up to the residents to report suspicious activity. We only have a certain number of officers and they can't cover the whole town. Private citizens need to step up and do their part too. We can't afford to be scared of these scummy low lifes anymore. If we don't do something now. The whole town is going to be a slum in a few years, not just certain trashy neighborhoods. We CAN take back our town. But everyone must work together. EVERYONE!!!

I dont understand why the owners of property in Ripley aren't made to clean up their property and keep it presentable. Oh, yes I do understand!! All they are looking for are those $$$$'s. They don't care what it looks like. How long do you think they would put up with this if it was close to their big beautiful homes? I know some people that have rental property in the city and they inspect it every 2 or 3 months; if it doesn't pass, the renters are out the door. I can't believe how the east side of Ripley looks, and there is no sense in it. And of course it is spreading all over town now. Wake up property owners. Clean the place up!!

Perhaps going back to school to get an education is the real soluton to your problem.
