Armed robberies spark concern in Southeast District

Quote

 

As street robberies have increased citywide, the Southeast District is suffering a greater share. One of nine police districts in the city, it has seen 19.9 percent of the city’s 2,073 street robberies through July 22, according to city data. That’s up from 17.8 percent through that date last year, and 12.4 percent during the same period in 2015.

… Crye said the uptick of crime in the area has caused a “shift” in her neighborhood. Some now are reluctant to spend time outside, she said.

“There are some people really questioning: Do we want to live like this?” Crye said.

… On the night that Crye was robbed, her neighbor, Mark Adams, was walking to his home when he was greeted with what he described as a familiar sight.

He saw three men in hoodies turn the corner onto the 300 block of South Chester Street, less than a minute from his house. Adams, the victim of two robberies and a burglary in the past decade, says he had no doubt about what was coming next.

 

 

Sounds safe to me.

Do we want to live like this?  Crye is a City resident, who voted for a City Council (and Mayor) who vowed to CRUSH the Cops!

The Citizens wanted non-effective Cops, they got 'em!

The Citizens wanted to get rid of their honest Cops, that happened!

The Citizens wanted to worship their criminals, they got their wish!!!.

The adage "be careful what you wish for" couldnt be more meaningful.

They must be doing that because they didn't get a pop up party yet.

Yeah.  No word in the news about the deacon from St. Leo getting mugged by a group as he left to rectory to walk a block away to watch the outside movies either. 

Homewood is under siege too with muggings, assaults, and robberies by groups of criminals.
