You would think the murder of a teenager on Saturday would have been enough to have someone on patrol at the specific location except there out there patrolling things that are very much unneccesary like stopping vehicles because of what race is driving or if someone is driving a nice car. This does not make any since. What's the use of police when they are not doing what they need to do. SICKENING

Raze the area for a pool? That's one huge pool. I like the former responce: police need to patrol high risk areas. Its not white people shooting and killing each other, so its not a problem.
