I have lived here for most of my life on and off and I know the situation here. Since 1967, we have been the recipients of of drug dealers and users who were sent here to "recover." Since most of the "influx," as we call them, have been coming here, we have had to live with people who only came here to do what they were doing back in the areas they came from. Robberies, drug dealing, using, harassing people, shootings, gangs, stabbings, all kinds of crimes. How would you feel if you were walking home or downtown from work and some gang member goes up to a child and just shoots them for no reason?
