New vision for Youngstown advances; old challenges hinder progress

Should read: There is no crime against be poor. There IS a crime for being a thief, outlaw, gang banger / drug dealer.

New vision for Youngstown advances; old challenges hinder progress

Sadly, the black neighborhoods of the south, east and north sides are where the problems are. Crime. Mayhem. Drugs. It was that way in the 60s and 70s. Still there now. Time has arrived to remove these cancers from the areas. Neighborhoods that were once mostly white in the 50s, and 60s, now ghettos. The normal, good, black people must rise up and get rid of the human scum. Until then, nothing will change. I applaud the Youngstown PD for arresting the losers in these blighted areas. There is no crime against being poor, being a theif. outlaw, gang banger ect. this is what must be removed. Sorry, if I didn't sugarcoat the obvious truth here. Youngstown once was a great place to live and raise a family. It can be again.

Shaken but thankful

Every home should have their gas furnances and stoves inspected once a year. You can also install natural gas leak detectors in your home as well, make sure your home has adequate working smoke alarms, fire extinguishers in your kitchen and near your water heater and carbon monoxide leak detectors. These all are well worth every penny when they save your life and / or keep your home from burning to the ground.

QB Quinn back in saddle for Cleveland

This season is a lost cause anyway under Mancini, a terrible hire to begin with. The Browns lack a good running game, so that puts great pressure on the QB. Let Quinn play win or lose and get some game experience and confidence. He'll never improve with Mancini's "play three games, get benched" style of coaching.
Meanwhile, all other players on both side of the ball need to get their head in the game and ratchet THEIR game up another notch or two. The problem is, the majority of the players dislike Mancini so much, they know the more losses now, the more chance Mancini will be fired.
Enjoy this Monday night game. Thanks to Mancini and this season, it will be 2015 before MNF returns to Cleveland.

B.J. Alan seeks Austintown land

I'm with Trustee Ditzler, there is nothing shady going on here and simply a good company wanting to be in full compliance with it's state license. Plus, it's at a great location in Austintown for this type of business. As a trustee, Ditzler is doing a job he was elected to do for all residents of Austintown. Just my opninion.

Mangini to Browns: Be smart

I agree completely with Coach Mangini. too many of today's players have a showboat, "LOOK AT ME" mentality. Players who seperate themselves 15 yard downfield, primping and fistpumping for doing their job is laughable to me. You never saw Dick Butkus, Clay Mathews, Ray Nitschke, Bruce Mathews, Gary Collins, Paul Warfield, do stupid stuff like that.
Group celebrations, ect, look like crap from the ghetto, and should be eliminated. What player or coach said "Act Like You've Been There Before" or "Act Like You've Done That Before"?
Amen.
GO BROWNS!
PS Saw JaMarcus Russel the Raiders' QB take off his helmet. Two glistening, sparkling, bright diamond earrings in each ear. What the??? My first thought: "How pretty...'
As the son of a Youngstown Steel Worker, wearing two earrings NEVER crossed my mind. How embarrassing for Russel, but many of today's players are all about the bling - directly as heard from crappy rap and hip hog errrr...hop music...

City cop off the job for alcohol use

Officer Payne should immediately be fired. No if, and or buts about it. Not acceptable, Chief Hughes.
It would be one thing if Payne was on vacation, at a family barecue, and received a phone call to report to work in 45 minutes to an hour. I could understand that.
A Police officer, knowing he had been drinking and then reports for work, how dumb can he be? He should have called in sick.
Since Payne also had an incident in June, you would think he would be on his best behavior possible. Now this???

No, give his job to a young Youngstown officer who has gone through the academy, training, and has the physical qualifications and mental attitude to protect Youngstown residents from street thugs, punks and lawbreakers. Payne should and must be pink slipped.
What's next? Should the YPD wait until Payne gets in an accident from being hung over, and a YPD cruiser, (or city owned vehicle) is tore up, air bags deployed, front end smashed, radiator crushed into the front of the motor, windsheild shattered, headlights broken, leaves the scene on the back of a flat bed tow truck? THEN, something might be done? Hummmm....
Payne must go. He can get alcohol treatment and find another occupation.

Citizens have right to talk back to police

Police officers respect those who respect them. My Dad told me at a very young age that if I ever was pulled over, shut the car off, take the keys out of the ignition, light up the inside of the car if it is night, let the officer see immediately where your hands are as he or she walks up to the vehicle.

As a teenager in the 70s, a few times I was pulled over I did all of the above. I did whatever the officer to me to do. I was courteous and polite.

NEVER A PROBLEM. In fact, I even had an officer small talking sports news of the day, without a ticket. As an adult, I have not been pulled over in decades, but my driving record, vehicle maintenance, and safe driving practices never draw attention to myself when I am in traffic.

I don't drink and drive. I don't run from the police. I don't transport drugs on my person or in my car. Bottom line: If I am pulled over, I have all the correct paperwork, valid licence, current vehicle registration, proof of insurance. I have nothing to hide.

Lastly, if your race has a history of committing the MAJORITY of crimes in America, from petty to felony, then chances are you will be pulled over more often. So be it. No racial profiling, it called investigating a group of known lawbreakers. Blame your loser people who are outlaws. If that is not you, simply do the above I mentioned. Nothing to hide, courteous to a peace officer, you have nothing to fear.

Gates was clearly out of line. Hopefully, he'll learn what I knew at age 10 or so...
