    You can thank your toothless Wilmington City Council for all the crime and gangs. They refuse to crack down on the gangs. Call in some federal forces to take these neighborhoods away from gang control. Our law forces in the city cannot seem to take care of the gangs.

    Last year before I moved away from Wilmywood (in the Cape of Fear area)…I mentioned bringing in the National Guard to help curtail the crime spree that was going on, my suggestion on these Forums. Ha!…People threw replies back at me to my statement on these Forums, as though they were bombing Baghdad. Now the crime is a constant news story…and your Mayor still remains silent…AND…”Will Continue That Way!”
    All in all…3 of us agree with your comment though…Me, myself and I.
    Good luck getting your leaders to step up to the plate on decision making deterrents on Gang Bangers. You will hear a pin drop first.
