    How many people have to get shot at cruisers before the city will shut them down?

  2. Julio says:

    Yes, they should have shut down Cruisers long ago.

    We heard the sirens roaring with this crime and the others, it’s a shame, so very sad. Drastic measures need to be taken, it’s time. shut them down and shut the criminals down. If we really take a tally of the true cost of crime, we’d get rid of every criminal here, just can’t afford them, plain and simply. Crime is too costly on several levels, not just economically, but mostly economically. But it’s also the personal trauma residents go through. Every time we hear the sirens of police, fire, ambulances roaring through town every night and all weekend, I think I’m in Times Square in New York City. Very upsetting. Shouldn’t be that way.

    Sirens just tell me someone is doing their job. True I rather hear the train than a siren. I just say a prayer and there is no stress.
