It takes a village

I couldn’t resist sending my thoughts on what Mr. Dobbie wrote in today’s paper. It takes a village, Mr. Dobbie, to catch these perpetrators. Since he doesn’t care to live in this city and just collects money without any responsibility toward property, he doesn’t seem to understand. I suppose you don’t make the necessary repairs after your errant tenants leave those apartments full of problems!

Some of those people leave residue from the “coke” and heroin that they process. Think you’ll care when some little baby gets hold of some of that stuff and something happens to it?

Our city has been fighting the drug problem for years and once in a while, someone helps by doing the right things. There seems to be a lot of crime all over the country and we need all of the help we can get. Our police department and fire department work hard to keep us safe.

For what it is worth, I think City Council should make the landlords give names of tenants when they register them. After all, how will the police know where the criminals are?
