Zone 2555 and Calaveras face more death
Just after the 4th of July, a few days past, there was a visit to the road and community that make up Zone 2555 by the 'Angel of Death', a personage that had been held at bay for almost 2 years.
MOI has been informed that a young gang member was shot to death on the road, 18 he was, and rumour has it that his death was due to gang related drug activity. The gang member was found face
down in the dirt of the road. It is said that this horrid death came about due to activity at a much trouble property on road, a property well known to coppers, city officials, neighbourhood 'faith based' leaders and the folks round it.
The last gang - drug death was in 2007, on Father's Day, when a young thug was shot dead in his vehicle on the road.
Congrats are in order...........Mayor Swearengin can sew on a cross to frock, to remind herself of her lack of leadership and inability to hear the cries of help from a much troubled community in Downtown Area. Downtown Tsar Sharton can paint a cross on his shield, to remind self of his complete lack of reality in dealing with what truly ails Downtown, he carries blame for gangs and drugs keeping folks from going into the Downtown main. Rev. Phil Skei has a stain on his soul, for shouting 'Praise Jesus', all the while dodging bullets and ignoring gangs and drugs on road he lives.
The whole group is lead by Council President Cynthia Sterling, who has many deaths against her and during her watch as council member. Ms. Sterling has allowed Civic Pride to die in Zone 2555, never forcing City of Fresno to act to save a community desperate.
Hate lives in Zone 2555 and on road once lived on. Hate directed against anyone brave enough to be different, to fight for change, and to encourage folks to be the best possible. Hate directed against gangs, drugs, whores, benefits cheats and slumlords was too hard for Swearengin, Sharton, Skei or Sterling to grasp and cause the community to rise up with hope, that elected officials really cared.
Given the trend on Calaveras and in Zone 2555, Father Christmas need not worry about visiting this Christmas..............along with Civic Pride missing, is the Moral Responsibility............
Right odd.......Mayor Swearengin, Tsar Scharton, Ms. Sterling and the good Rev. Skei all say they want, and can make happen, a safer community in Downtown area.........how can that be?.....if they can not prevent death on one road in one much troubled and put upon community in Fresno.......
Four years have past since this was posted. The sad reality is that this much troubled road is still visited by much pain and suffering. The dear reader who sent this reminder did so as she wanted to remind of what had been done good while on that road. I am very proud of that...
