  • Oh lovely, I live near here. 5:30 pm??? I wonder if it was related to the drug house on the corner…

  • MPD has long known about the problems on this corner and done absolutely nothing. The stabbing murder today occurred right next to one of their light-pole surveillance cameras. Yet “no lookout”…
