Want to help support the next phase of our project? These document dumps barely scratch the surface. We’ve got gigs upon gigs upon gigs of research files to sort through and digitize.

    Great letter there, Hizzoner. Should have had one of those ex-media types you have on staff proof-read it better.

    “Discuss what them what their response should be…”

    All those punk thugs that acted out in the Mob Violence activity should be dealt with HARSHLY!…Sternly & Swiftly!….They have been getting away with this behavior for years. I mean who isn’t scared of a MOB of aggressive young adults in the 200 strong range?

    What shot has an individual got of defending himself against a mob? and if the person getting beat down would use deadly force to defend their self, it would be possibly profiled a racial incident ….

    The suggestion of a security matrix downtown with the deployment of a police officer visable on every corner of an identified specific area to protect the public has been offered up by local downtown business operators before. However it was never taken under advisement seriously. The local business operators were told by the Metro Powers that there was no budget to accomplish implementing such a plan.There are a number of Business operators aware when this attempt took place and can verify the reaction of the City!
