No, it is not an ideal place

No, it is not an ideal place for bicycle patrols. I used to live in that area, like Navy Gary says, they would need armored bicycles. The incident didn't happen in the sheltered oasis of Sconyers, it happened down in the "bottoms" at the intersection of Richmond Hill Road and Lumpkin Road, an area where even my 6 foot, highly muscled brother wouldn't take a chance bicycling or on foot. He used to walk in that area and after getting roughed up, held up at gun-point and on the last occasion, waking up sitting down in the convenience store with no knowledge who clocked him, I'm sure he'd recommend the same.

Any thing from between

Pate to Harding rd HAS ALREADY become a Major Crime Problem area.

Ranking the Highest reported crime area for ARC, as reported in the AC Weekly Crime Map most weeks for each of the last 2 years

Section 8 Information Request

I have been thinking about making an GA official info request asking for a breakdown of Section 8 movements.

Tracking each year by zip code between 2004 and 2014 just to see how it works out compared to what we see and think.

It would make a good College Research Paper or even a good multi-part AC article.

The only major problem being, would it be too UN-PC.

You already know the information but the government doesn't want to admit that wherever sec 8 exist the crime rates will be higher than sec 8 free zones.

All males between the ages of

All males between the ages of 17 and 29 should be required to register with the sheriff's department.

Information required: Place of employment or place of ongoing education. Notarized documentation required. Alternatively, an affidavit of upstanding character from six people would be required.

Those who answer "N/A" next to place of employment/education or who cannot get six people to vouch for their character should be required to report daily at 6:00 AM for city/county work details. They would be fingerprinted and photographed and paid $9/hour of supervised labor.

It's just an idea.

Countyman, I used to live

Countyman, I used to live near there, and it's gotten terrible.

You don't know what you are talking about.

Years ago a little girl was abducted from that area, that they never have found, and it all went downhill from there.

stuaby, sure, great idea.

stuaby, sure, great idea.

Put a whole bunch of criminals, drunks, druggies, and drug dealers together. And don't forget about the beefs that they constantly have with each other, so they can easily shoot and fight each other.

And then let's also add all the mentally ill and emotionally disturbed ones.

There's this big myth that all of them don't work because they are lazy. There might be a few like that, but most of them are unemployed because they are unemployable.

I lived around those type of people. There are REASONS why they don't work, and you quickly see why they don't. And it doesn't take long to see it, either.

They aren't right. They can't function normally in society and in a work environment. They couldn't function normally in school and they can't function normally at a job.

Why do you think they don't already have jobs? See above.

These are details that could be worked out. Exemptions for crazy people would have to be allowed, of course. (Their families would have to pay a tax or have their bennies reduced commensurately.)

However, there are a lot of people out there that are able-bodied, shiftless, up to no good and need hands-on management to stay on the straight and narrow.

Constant contact with the police department and manual labor might cut down on senseless, impulsive crimes--at least on the part of locals.

This isn't a panacea. It's just an idea. Of course, we can continue to do nothing and just watch the carnage and mayhem continue.

Stuaby, it is a good idea,

Stuaby, it is a good idea, but won't work as Cmom says. I'd do it a different way and let the free market do it. Stop giving out money for welfare, nebulous medical problems and so on. Make people HAVE to work out of necessity. Work will change character for the better.
