Wilson Hotel

I had to work late this evening, so I was unable to listen, but on my
walk home I noticed three cop cars and four bicycle units in front of
the Wilson Hotel.

The police were pulling guys out of the hotel in handcuffs. From what
I overheard they are part of a robbery ring. One was in possesion of a
tv from a recent robbery and the others looked like they had some
stolen shoes from various stores.

As I type this four more patrol cars have arrived and it looks as
though they are about to go in and toss the place.

Apparently the catylist for this was a shoplifter at Payless shoes who
fled directly to the Hotel.

Upon entry to the Hotel they encountered a fight in progress.
Ambulances arrived a knife was involved and their was a stabbing.

Police have apprehended the offenders.

Saturday Rally=Another Success

If Helen thinks that her "constituents" don't care, she is hugely mistaken. Today's rally was yet another step in taking back Uptown.

Of course, she wasn't around to address what she's been avoiding, and her baseball bat-wielding staff told at least one concerned citizen to leave immediately.

Despite the absurd 'non-response,' we walked home with smiles on our faces knowing that we did the right thing. And we shall continue to do the right thing...

Thanks to all - and stay tuned for the next rally!
