    This is crazy! Is it possible to wake up in the morning without someone being shot, robbed, kidnapped, or killed? I guess this is why I just watch the news for the weather.

    You know things are bad when the Mayor and City Council
    require Police Protection.
    They are, however, finding it necessary to hide all the pertinent
    public safety facts, figures, statistics, demographics, and targeted taxation enforcement requirements.
    Notice there are no Richmond Police Log Reports published
    by Richmond Public Media?
    Public Safety is not an obvious Legacy Priority.
    LovingRVA’s Positively Richmond Consortiums’ avoidance
    of the problem, while actively, propagandizing,
    advertising and soliciting for their Special Interest Ventures

    That was a bad area 25 years ago and has not gotten any better.
    Too many guns and fools with guns out there.

    You commenters don’t know what you are talking about, as usual. There was a drug arrest made at 2800 a few weeks ago. The police took all the money. Obviously, somebody came for their money … Just saying …
