I grew up in the West End of Louisville in the 50's and 60's and left there in 1965 to go into the military. I have lived up in central Indiana since 1966 and visited a friend in Louisville over the weekend. We drove down to the West End on a Friday afternoon and I couldn't believe it. Homes boarded up, trash all over the place, what looked like public barbecues on the side walks. I thought I was in a 3rd world country. Truly pathetic. I have visited the West End for the last time. I'll never forget it. We drew lots of stares and there was no way I was going to get out of the car. Was probably lucky to get out of there alive. Heartbreaking.

But wait. The city throws money at this area. Are you implying that the inhabitants are unappreciative? The judicial system is tweaked with a revolving door so they continue to receive countless opportunities to get their lives in line. It isn't working? Are you suggesting that thugs will remain thugs simply because kissing their asses won't change their minds or hearts?
Hell, I'm not smart , but I could tell you that.

Just wait until you see the thefts, robberies, and other typical acts committed by the lowly negro inhabitants.

Yep, every time I ride through downtown and especially towards the west end, it reminds me of that movie "The Jungle Book" where all the monkeys and apes have taken over a run human down city. Complete with a monkeys and a kid dancing around in a diaper...

We need George to save the west end. Place curfews on those fools and if broken have George to make sure the law holds. We stand our ground, its what should have happened with the 200 people except there would have been a couple memorials come Tuesday.
