Wow! It's been two years since I wrote that and things have really gotten out of hand since. The immigrants don't bother me since they tend to stay to themselves and don't seem to cause any trouble , but lately the drunks , drugsters , bums , and all out weirdos walking the streets outnumber the normal people 5-1.

You are definitely right about that, not to mention about two or three stabbings a week in PJS, heroin, marijuana, assaults, the illegal apts, and 112, right of Old Town Road, the whole area by Bravo, Heatherwood Apartments, and the Lake Streets all which have gotten worse.
