the Public Housing Authority and the City Police beef up patrols in these communities? Sorry, but Dunkin Donughts really does not require all of that patroling effort.

Seriously, if 80% of serious crime takes place in 20% of the city, it would seem police efforts should be focused on those areas.

And if identified, why do they allow the perpetrator to remain in public housing?

Really, these folks disgust me and the system is in serious need of an overhaul. Iv’e been working in the same job for years, I stand next to you in line at Harris Teeter, pay for my groceries with cash, and due to company cuts, my family and I ended up homeless because our savings had run out.When we inquired about assistance, we were told, based on my wages, that we do not qualify for public aid,was given a list of food banks, and when we inquired about housing assistance, were rudely treated and told there was a 5 to 7 year wait list. Now, if I was a young minority, pregnant, or recieving SSI, I’m quite sure I could have moved into an income based apt today. Yet since I am a middle aged white male that works, and am now forced to live out of my vehicle, I do not stand a chance.Law enforcement criminalizes the homeless, but we are not all drug/alcohol, habitual felons. I have no record nor habits, yet I am harassed,tags run etc, just for attempting to park somewhere and sleep for work, while some 250 lb minority is living the life of Reilly on taxes that I pay so they can continue to get free housing, eat shrimp and steak, purchase vile clothing from Citi Trends, fake hair, nails, and jabber all day long on an I Phone, then go home and watch cable tv on “assistance”. If this post bothers you, then it probably applies to you. And lest we not forget the convicted felons recieving disability in the jails, still living off the fat of the working mans back so they can eat canteen??? Yep, sad indeed.I’m grateful for a part time second job obtained, and I am grateful to those few folks that helped me and my family. I have no sympathy for drama, arrogance, and laziness thinking the world owes you something, and that goes for any color,creed or race.

This is very sad. Some people are trying to do better and people can change. It is very obvious who the white people are that are posting on this story and I say that because I AM A WHITE FEMALE IN MY 40’S!! Regardless, a life was lost to violence. You people with all the answers should go to these communities and try to make a difference. Oh, I forgot, you are scared to ride by there when the sun starts setting. You are the ones with all the answers but let’s talk about your family problems…oh, guess you wanna skip that. People need to try to unite and make a positive difference or keep their mouth shut!! It is easy to dwell on the negative and much harder to try to focus on the positive.

Ignorance and hatred. We’re in the south, folks, ya gotta expect the hateful comments from these “CHRISTIAN”, God fearing, “love thy neighbor” preaching folks! They know nothing different. Sad, really.

…,but it’ll never happen. 1. Get off your rumps and go get a job. 2. Stop farming babies for govenment funding and go get a job. 3. Stop teaching your children the easy way through life is to live off the government dole, assist them with getting an education, stop letting them sell drugs for a living and tell them to go get a job. 4. Teach your children that “breaking the cycle” and growing rather than perpetuating it and feeling helpless will assist in the reduction of violence.

Those positive differences alone will allow your future generations to box their way out of the projects and become successful citizens that can contribute to society rather than simply take away from it. Public housing was intended as temporary quarters for those that need help getting back on their feet. It was never intended (along with the other entitlements) to be lifetime, generational pass-downs or as any sort of an answer to personal lack of motivation.
