Yeah the average person on the West Side carry's $1200.00 dollars on them.Something isn't right there. Drug's are the first thing that come to mind, perhaps some sort of insurance fraud as well. Either way I would bet that something shady is going on.

Lindsay has a disease, that is why she is the way she is, Lil Wayne is just a thug.

Where would the money come from to do these renovations? The way I see it the city, county, state, and country are in dire straits fiscally. Does this not seem just a tad bit irresponsible right now to even be discussing, let alone moving forward with!

Sounds like ytown3 is a supporter of annexation. Denial is the first step in admitting that there is no problem. Especially when the problem is in bold,and neon letters. Slapping you in the face, and sptiing for at you. If you honestly in all your senses believe that there is no difference between Austintown, Boardman, Canfield, and what goes on in Youngstown then you are in a universe far, far away. I am guessing you are trying to equate the community's as one, because you have been indoctrinated into a belief system that if everyone else around Youngstown begin to pay for Youngstown then it will be a better place.Thus justifying a man who represented a certain community, but lived in another, but was still apart of that community indirectly. However Pastor Alford who passed on a few years ago, actually moved into Youngstown, after leaving his church. Now he 'LIVED' in the community, therefore he also represented his community. There is a difference. That is also not to say that Norman Wagnor wasn't a good man, that did a lot of good for a lot of people. I am sure that he did. However wouldn't a strong willed, good hearted, loving man who garnered the utmost respect from his community, be better served living in the community that he served.

The Lemon Grove is a perfectly safe, locally owned business. Anyone who has ever been there would attest to that. How many bar fight's occurred in suburban establishments over the weekend?

Austintown, Boardman, Niles, Canfield, Girard, Mineral Ridge, Poland, Sruthers, Lowelville, McDonald, and Liberty are all COMMUNITIES that have been affected by globalization,and outsourcing.Add up their population, and then compare it to Youngstown, though I don't know for certain. I would bet they are more populous than Youngstown. There are still areas of Detroit, and Cleveland that are very livable. Granted their economies are just a small fraction of what they used to be, they still have pockets of civilized livable space. My point is not to justify, or be a proponent of these tactics(globalization, outsourcing), my point is, just because an area's population endures tough economic circumstances, that is no excuse for the moral fabric to completely deteriorate. Also I understand that is natural for crime to increase when economic hardship hit's. The crime that was committed in this case is extreme, and then some. This is inexcusable. When an eighty year old woman is no longer safe to go to church, I don't care if you are a liberal or a conservative. You have to take a long hard look at what is causing this. It has to be fixed otherwise like I said this is going to be an unimaginable place to live. We have come so far in many aspects of American society, we have also taken many steps back. This is most certainly an example of us taking a step back.

This is so tragic! Enough is enough already. Nothing ever get's better here, it only slowly get's worse, and worse. The only one to blame are the thugs that continually perpetrate these crimes.Other communities have adapted to a global economy, and outsourcing of jobs in a civilized manner. It is fine time America stop paying for it's original sin, and hold everyone accountable equally.There are communities that are obviously tainted, and have been tainted for a long time now. This must be dealt with. We are on the fast track to a state of emergency, if we are not already in the early stages of it. This is not how normal humans behave.What is it going to be like here in twenty years. My god an eighty year old woman was shot at church. This is absolutely awful! I am so ashamed to call Youngstown home tonight.
