  • I live on Parkwood Place. That murder took place one month ago on Friday.

    In the past 30 days I have not noticed increased police presence or patrols.

    If 2 murders (and an attempted 3rd) don’t get the MPD’s attention, what will?

    • What? It happened over two months ago. There actually has been a bigger police presence. They had a meeting about it. Were you there? There are additional patrols.

      Why complain about the cops after they arrest this murderer?

  • good. And definitely props to the cops.

  • Which gang did Mr. Harris run with? Who supplied his guns and bullets? Why did he shoot Barber and Simmons?
