NEWS FLASH — YPSILANTI NEWS
There has been another robbery ending in assault in the downtown area. This happens FREQUENTLY around here and is of great concern. The details are in this article on MLIVE.com. 3 teenagers have been arrested for the crime. No info was given on the condition of the victim. http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2015/07/three_teens_arrested_in_ypsila.html#incart_river
The other crime epidemic in our area is people stealing from mostly unlocked cars, garages and houses. Some residents in the area don’t want to lock their vehicles worrying that someone will break in and cause more damage. Some people don’t want to leave their cars unlocked because if someone searches the car, they don’t often shut the door tight cuz they don’t want to make much noise. This usually leaves the interior dome light on, which can lead to a drained battery. What do you think is the best way to deal with it? Locked or unlocked? Maybe we should all try to stop owning cars, for starters.
A youth organization in town is putting on a party for teens to help combat the recent violence in the area. There is a $5 cover charge. I’m sure the teens most at risk in the area have an extra $5 to spare. Sheriff Clayton clearly stated that the problems leading to the recent gunfire in town are first and foremost ‘SOCIO-ECONOMIC’. So why do the initiatives to help the teens in need COST MONEY?? http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2015/07/youth_to_put_on_party.html#incart_river
Ass usual, the comments on the MLIVE article are inane, at best. I have copied and pasted the comments here (after removing names to spare people more complete embarrassment):

“A local organization is hosting a party Saturday.” True, the language is not precise. Which Saturday? This Saturday? Next Saturday? Typical for MLive reporting, though.

Also, since the problem is a south side and West Willow issue, why not hold the party down in the Parkridge community center? If trouble brews up at the party, why bring it to Normal Park?
Nope. The party is taking place at the Ypsilanti Senior Center located at 1015 Congress Street. The Senior Center is located in Recreation Park. Recreation Park is not south of downtown.
