Just be careful better safe then sorry and if you see any activity that you think could result in crimes or violence, immediatly get into a safe place and call the police.
I live near that park and go there with my kids. If there is any truth to this, please give me details and your sources. PM me if you want. I do see teens hanging around there after school, etc., and my husband saw a kid that appeared to be on drugs there not too long ago. Nothing I would call "gang" activity, though.

I think I will take a late night jog through Marcy Park some evening soon--somehow I doubt i'll see too many menacing charactors..Who knows maybe i'll trip over a copy of Boyz in the Hood..My father lives in an area in SW. Denver that really is experiencing some true gang activity--we are having a meeting concerning this with DPD next week..I myself am very unafraid of these loser gang charactors moving into the city..It just makes me angry and more vigilant to stop their spread of activity.. However the mere thought of someone shaking in fear of Highlands Ranch gang bangers makes me laugh..
What's the next thread's title like this: "Boulder crips target Evergreen bloods on Pearl street mall"

Give it 20 or so years. LOL!

This thread is making me wonder....if this thread could be the precursor, or beginning if you will......of a mass exodus from Highlands Ranch to a suburb even further out from the center of the metro........thus continuing and expanding on the idea that is suburban sprawl.

Seriously though, all it will take is a story from 9News, some word of mouth at soccer practice and eventually Highlands Ranch will become the next Detroit.
