This wouldn`t be an issue without BPT`s black population. Kneegroids have no respect for property or people, and ruin everything in their path.

There is no "Downtown" there is only an intersection in front of the court house with a street vendor cart...

Used to be that way- definitely not the case any more. A dozen bar/restaurants have sprung up in a small area, from the courthouse to peoples bank, and also towards Layfayette Plaza. Check it out, there are family places, classy singles places, and noisy dance places. There have not been any stories of muggings, thefts, or assaults associated with all that, either.

and there won't be given the amount of police (on/off duty doesn't seem to matter actually) that hang by them. most calls handled o"on the fly" so that locati9ons can be fudged..Girls still working doorways withen 2 blocks of the court steps, sugar ain't the only thing on the rest tables..Same four or five cars cruien the blocks carring the "freight" for the alleyway boys..When there were only a couple of rest that was beleiveable given the pop and traffic now you got to be bling=d to not see whats goin on..

I think you're in a time warp called '1990'.

Only the fourth? Didn't they take into consideration the nations highest asthma rate? At least they mentioned the polluted properties, maybe they will finally admit that asthma and lung cancer is also caused by the fumes from the illegal dumping seeping into homes.

are you dyslexic, do you just have a lisp or are your fingers on the wrong keys? We're trying to figure out what the heck you're saying!! Proof reading helps.

I'm sorry but the downtown area is not as bad as he describes it... there are now several areas that are blossoming into great night life spots.

Downtown Bpt. will never return to the once beautiful area it was years ago with all it's stores, theaters and of course the infamous, arcade. All that remain now are peoples memories of the way it was.
I'm sorry but, "great" night life spots do not make a great city and can no way replace the thrills of shopping in it's once seemingly endless rows of stores. Ask anyone who experienced this in the 50's & 60's.

Puuleeez.... I hate democrats so much that I'd be the first one to point out the dysfunction, but what you're describing is the '90's, dude. You don't see the prostitutes walking around anymore. There are lots of nice places, like Two Boots, etc. Those are family places, they have quality food and entertainment, the areas outside are safe. Period.

I'll look for you too; I guess since you want my cash you must be a lazy scumbag from the ghetto, LOL. Locked and loaded.
