    If the city allows bars, social clubs, pubs to be opened in the neighborhoods. Then the city should be held responsible for each crime that originates from these places along with the person and the place they came out of.

    Parking is already difficult enough in these old neighborhoods with homes that were never built to have a car. The last thing we need is more traffic on our streets, clogging them up until 11 p.m. when the slightly intoxicated crowd is leaving talking and yelling at each other. Dropping their garbage on residential lawns and releiving themselves on our bushes.

    How about we just open up bars and social clubs around beckers home and any council man/woman that votes for it? Let's make them live in a "normal" neighborhood. Let's also have them live next to a drug/alcohol road home and allow a few low income housing units on their block.

    When the mayor doesn't have to live with these decisions, it is easy to normalize things.....
