  • It's a jungle over there in that neighborhood.

    Did the polices search for the attacker at Cecil Williams food pantry? I bet you he is there.

    I keep hearing people say the Mid Market area is getting better, but I don’t believe it. My thoughts are with the man who went through this trauma and had to be taken to the hospital.
