    I think we should put some new flower pot on Main Street. They could use PD’s budget for it. The high up seem more concerned with Main Street then the public’s safety. Triple the police force and less help the PD deal with the crime. Call in when you see the dirt bags causing problems or starting to gather. When anyone does the crime let’s make sure the court system makes them do the time.

      We just call them nig**rs here. They are all the same. Remember when cities used to keep all the scum confined in one low rent area? It kept things safe and predictable and lowered the chance that anyone worthwhile may become a victim of loser trash. Now they live all over spread throughout neighborhoods because some ass thought that if you spread them out in the community they would assimilate and become human being’s. Turns out they just build hive style colonies destroying homes in the process and then they simply act the same way they did in the ghetto they came from. It’s to bad I’ll be called a racist for speaking the truth about section 8 shits. The program is abused and manipulated. It was a failing prospect in the first place. Mason city is toast. Between the meth and heroin and wannabe gang crime it’s not going to get better. It would if we where allowed to have an honest dialogue about who is responsible for this type of crap and the effective ways of dealing with it. But we live in a town where two black guys can stab a man half to death at the liquor store and the charges ALL get dropped. Cooperation is corruption when it comes to the d boys wherever else black males come from to sell drugs and commit crime in north iowa.

        Anybody scrambling to write an edgy response to this comment?

          Here is edgy. He is a racist because he categorizes all black people the same. If there wasn’t a demand for meth, heroin and opioids, then drug dealers (they come in all colors) wouldn’t be here.

            You calling him a racist for telling the truth. He described the problem to a “T”” and all you can do is call the messenger names. The real ‘RACIST” are people who call other people racist.

            You say old man like there is something wrong with growing ole. It means I have a lot more experience to draw on that you will ever have.. You can never catch up and you can’t insult me by calling me old. Everyone gets old if they live long enough. That is something that should worry someone like you.

            Deep, old man, deep. -Everyone gets old if they live long enough.- How long did it take you to figure that out. Such an intelligent statement I imagine it will go down in history as the most profound thing you ever said.

            If you’re a pastey-faced Honkey (like me), and you make a bee-line out your front door to the nearest residential neighborhood where you really, really don’t belong, guess what color the residents gonna be?

            If you answered BLACK, you’re a racist, but you’re also correct. Oh Jeez. What are we to do??

          We hear gunshots all the time in this neighborhood. It never happened until a few years ago. What changed other then people moving here from Chitcago and Deadtroit. Brought in by greedy real estate agents. Rex Hardy should be brought to justice over this crime.

    Well homes aren’t targeted without a reason. This could escalate. Home is middle block so it WAS a target.
    Right in the middle of a major school zone too.
