      Brenda, I love my city also, that why I don’t live Memphis.
      50 years ago I was proud to say I lived in the Memphis area, No more!
      I don’t carry a weapon unless I go to Memphis.

        We’ll don this not 50 years ago… If this city disgusts you so bad and you moved away. Why are you looking at Memphis local news and leaving comments?

        Because like most of us CJ we like reading the ignorant blind idiots who live here excuse every crime with “Crime be happenin everwhere u goes” ruse to try and make up justification for it all.

      • Cj

        Well Toby crime does happen everywhere that is just the Truth… But then again you probably don’t know anything about the truth do you?

      • Toby

        Crime doesn’t happen everywhere, I know places where crime like Memphis doesn’t happen, it’s just you people are so stupid and uneducated you think the world is like a Lil Wayne video or Boyz in the Hood because that’s all you have ever been around. Top 100 best places to live in the USA look it up sometime and while you’re at it look up the top 25 most dangerous neighborhoods in the USA, and look at what they all have in common.

        Come into reality once in awhile, you’ll learn something.

    Well, I know that area well and it’s a hot bed of drug activity in that area now. All the motels are full of crack dealers, and don’t think those managers don’t know. Heck, for a little money a crack dealer can almost run the place. Knowing that area like I do, it wouldn’t be surprised in the least if it was a drug deal gone bad. I avoid most golf Memphis like the plague, including the Sycamore View and I-40 motels and area.

      Crack? That area is full of meth heads and people that cook meth… So I’m pretty sure that you do know that area very well

    • if u knew who i was..u would b shocked!

      @RUSS BROWN, when you tried to correct your comment. You messed up and put “golf” in there. Now, what you were trying to say is, “when you go and play putt putt golf on sycamore view, you havent had any problems.” YOU KNOW YOU LIVE IN MEMPHIS. dont be ashame, you are not memphis and you are not committing the crimes,,,,,,i dont understand why people take it so personally when fool go bad in memphis. hell it’s not me…memphis dont represent me!!!!!!
