Bad new is, that isn't the only scary corner in the city...we have lots of them.
Two of the worst that come instantly to mind, 6th ave. and Crane street. That corner is just chock full of unsavory characters just hanging around in large groups doing nothing constructive. The other, the store front adjacent to Van Vranken at Mason Street...same story, different thugs.
I'm also sure readers can name many more locations that would benefit from a little Police the name of Public Safety, of course.

courtesy of washington Times: 'With President Obama set to leave for a weeklong stay in Africa, the goals of his trip — boosting economic partnerships and engagement with the U.S. and promoting democratic development in African nations — are in danger of being overshadowed.
In the days before his departure on Wednesday, much of the attention in Washington has focused instead on the high cost of the trip, estimated to be somewhere between $60 million and $100 million.

If the Feds go after Zimmerman we should be outraged! Whatever happened to the double jeopardy rule? If the civil rights definition wasn't met for the first prosecution, why should Washington be allowed to initiate new charges? If the state authorities in Florida thought they had half a chance on civil rights charges, they would have been added to the list of original charges brought on Zimmerman. Those guys were looking to hang Zimmerman from square one, when any law student would have seen the evidence necessary to overcome the self defense statute was weak at best. The motivation of the county behind the charges is suspect to begin with ( read political), and additional federal charges would be a huge waste of resources time and money sorely needed elsewhere. How about the money to be wasted on Zimmerman be allocated for our wounded Veterans suffering serious cutbacks in vet's hospitals? Come to think of it...why not petition Obama to pay back the $100 million dollars he spent of our money on a thinly veiled vacation for he and his family in Africa? What, we have no problems here in the USA to resolve? A trip to Appalachia or Detroit would have more constructive...and a whole lot cheaper.

The jurors in this case should be applauded for doing a courageous job under difficult if not intimidating circumstances. To make a sound and informed decision as defined by law, while a large group of potentially violent and vengeful people stood yards away. The court of 'liberal' public opinion convicted Zimmerman 10 seconds after he was forced to protect himself from his attacker. If it were a black on black crime, under identical circumstances, no one outside of that neighborhood would ever have heard of it. That is fact.
Because it was black man and a white man, every activist with an axe to grind or bills to pay saw their chance and jumped on the 24 hour a day news cycle be heard, for cause, or profit....most likely the latter.
It is truly a shame that the people so eager to protest and condemn this perceived (or manufactured)travesty could not use their impressive publicity and organizational skills to do something actually beneficial for the people they purport to champion.
Sometimes the black kid, or latin kid, or any minority du jour.... really is the bad guy.

The two knuckleheads above (who need to quit taking shots in this forum),seem to be missing the point...people need to stop putting their naked, compromising selves out there to anyone, be it friend, lover,dog catcher...nobody, no how. Learn to trust no one when it comes to this sort of thing, because down the road or sooner it WILL come back to bite you.The days of destroying negatives is a long over.The oft used axiom 'the internet is forever' is sadly very very real...once it's out there you ain't getting it back.

Exploitation by unscrupulous people is everywhere...just a text or email...or school desk away.

We also need a much more prominent police presence in the area. Instead of just filling up the patrol cars at the city Shangri-la and running elsewhere, stick around the area, stop a few drug deals on avenue A or Foster ave. and provide a little bit of a solution to the problem. Patrol the alleys after dark on foot, catch the speeders on the roads parallel to Van Vranken, quell some of the loud and threatening youth groups roaming around each night. Put foot patrols on Van Vranken and the adjacent streets, make it harder for these 'people' to do what they do.
Why subsidise Galesi, he doesn't have enough city development help? Justapo is right,give the damn building to Union, and watch it become viable overnight...and a tax asset at that.
