    I live on Pope st. this is not the first shooting we have had. We had several over the Christmas holiday. This time some one is now dead maybe my neighbors will wake up. I printed out 100 flyers and passed them out house to house about a neighbor hood watch meeting. Three of my neighbors showed up, all i have to say is you don`t get involved then you are part of the problem yourself. I am from Detroit and have seen what not getting involved does to a City. Detroit population was a 1.2 Million people and is now less than 600 thousand Those that could afford to move have moved out because some one gets killed almost every day of the week. Get a hold of you children because if you dont the streets will get them. When that happens you will go vist them at 201 Poplar or grave side your choice. If you want to see what this city will look like go to utube and check out Detroit. Thugs Drugs And Death is what you will see. Detroit is now bankrupt Is that where we want to be GET INVOVED FOLKS or more young folk will die.
