Westwood activists frustrated by a vacant house they said drew drugs and prostitution boarded it up themselves Wednesday – finishing just as a call from a police contact warned them they were trespassing and should leave.
Hours before, a city-paid contractor boarded up the house at 2186 Harrison Ave., having been ordered to do so after city officials learned of the activists’ plans and invitations to the media. But Mary Kuhl and others from Westwood Concern said when they arrived, they found just a small board over a window in the door and two doors padlocked.
So the police have time to go out and bust the heads of law abiding citizens trying to clean up their neighborhood but don't have the time to clean up the dirt bags and derelicts who dwell in this place.
That's what I call efficient government.
What's so "progressive" about crack houses?
