I do not see what the real story is in this. So some business owner is complaining about the crime issue downtown. What does he want? More resources thrown down there to help out his business? How about the rest of the City and the neighborhoods that are left unmanned while downtown gets the attention. I think he has already gotten much more than anyone else gets. If he has any more problems maybe he can spend his own money hiring more security of contract Police Officers. The tax payers should not take on any more burden to help him out. Maybe if its such a problem the business and property owners can pay more down there to deal with it.
