Yeh, it's a "revitalization"

Yeh, it's a "revitalization" tactic. Force innocent victims into the areas where they cage up all the thugs with welfare and subsidized housing. Gives them plenty of targets to get their spending money.

Georgiais#1, that really isn't funny. One of my best friends attends GA Tech and I would be devastated if something like this happened to her.

No AAQueen, I am not rabid.

No AAQueen, I am not rabid. Just suffering with Obama, ACORN (Community Organizers International), New Black Panther, Betty Beard revitalization, obstructionist black commissioner, everybody wants to take my money and give it to someone else OVERLOAD. It's enough to make a fella a little edgey. Plus my bootlegger is late with my non tax paid cigarettes and the nicotine craving is warping my sense of humor.

Tech is located in a crummy

Tech is located in a crummy neighborhood like MCG, so this isn't much of a surprise unfortunately. maybe they need to think of building a fence around the campus to make it secure.
