    Director spezial, Cheif and Andre lost control of the city. Get a handle on it. Crack down on crime by work your way across the city and down starting on the upper East side. Learn how to contain crime and gradually get rid of the issue. Do a daily sweep. Clean up all corners and hang out spots. These thugs need to fear law enforcement and they DO NOT. Pull over suspicious vehicles (some may argue that it's illegal) and vehicles known to be involved in drug sales and trafficking. These gangsters are too comfortable in the city. Look at North Main, Market Street, 17th Ave, Park, Ave, Rosa Parks and many others. Why don't you guys ask for help? You guys need help to keep the city safe. ASK FOR HELP!!!!
