It’s happening again. How many incidences of drug related crime do you need.This time a woman was robbed. But other times it has been drug related break and enters, drug related stabbings and drug related home invasions.
You need to you wake up to the fact that gangs, drugs and crime are invading your community and that the invaders are winning? Here is the latest in an ever increasing string of evidence from this morning’s Times Colonist.
Woman Was Robbed
“West Shore RCMP are looking for a man who attacked a woman. He knocked her out and took her cell phone and money while she was jogging. She was on a trail near Glen Lake Road in Langford on Tuesday night when attacked.”
“The 23-year-old woman was robbed while jogging off the trail near Shoreview Drive around 7 p.m. Suddenly a man approached and asked her for the time. Then she was then knocked unconscious and robbed.”
Drugs and gangs are in your schools now, in your parks and are becoming increasingly entrenched in your communities. These problems are being ignored. Your city government is intent on focusing its attention on new projects while failing to protect long established neighborhoods.
You need to DEMAND that city government take this gang, drugs and crime problem seriously. It will not until you make your voices heard?
Promoting Growth while Ignoring Decay
At what point does the abandonment of neighborhoods to accommodate new growth in new neighborhoods finally remind you of Surrey, as it does me? How many more robberies, break and enters, kids getting robbed for drugs, gun shots in the night time and home invasions is it going to take?
Open Invitation to Drugs and Gangs
This kind of reckless urban management serves as an open invitation to gangs, drugs and crime.
