    this town ,especially that area, is war zone…..this is reason why BLM and all those movements don't have real credibility with anyone without political or anarchy agenda….this is where BLM movements should step in….killings weekly where blacks kill blacks…how about protecting your own…step in where it matters and then maybe you get a real support from citizens who are not "woke" because it is trendy ,but 'woke' because they care and it really matters
