One thought on “Milan, Hollygrove neighborhoods to host anti-crime marches

  1. Forgot to prefix: Walking around the neighborhood is not going to fix the problem.

    Stopping the drug addicts, homeless, panhandlers and dealers from having an “easy walk” and “easy access” to get cheap alcohol, beer, sell drugs, panhandle at the local gas station will help those other corner business survive and make the neighborhood far safer.

    Having the drug dealers with their flashy cars, thumping and loud music hang around the gas stations scares away customers from those other local businesses.
