    First of all Scott Schaefer thanks for posting this, for those of us that live here in the City of Des Moines this hits home and puts it in a nutshell as to what is becoming of our city.
    The first class citizens that we want as neighbors in our city are the ones that seem to be putting their homes on the market and leaving, if they are lucky enough to find a buyer.
    Not only is our city broken it’s also broke and on the verge of being Insolvent.

    Rather than spending money on more cops the city should just use those funds to buy out apartment buildings that rent to Section 8 folks.

    Crime in Des Moines would drop the next day!

      What an awful and hateful thing to say. Poor people are not convicts and just because you don’t have money, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have an affordable home. This is such an ignorant thought process. We can’t get rid of people like you, so let’s just call it even.

        Just telling the truth.

        More crime happens in poor neighborhoods.

        Normandy Park has very few Section 8 residents and also has a very low crime rate.

        The City of Seattle is moving Section 8 residents out of Govt Housing Projects and into low income South End apartment buildings.

        More poor folks = more crime

        Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 12 Thumb down 8
