    WHO CARES what color they were??? Just take the trashy drug dealers off the streets!!! Please bring a bigger police presence to Mt Washington too!!! Residents would be grateful to be able to take a walk at night!!

      No take the real criminals off the streets; murderers, rapists, burglars, con-artists, etc. What does this have to do with crime? Drug usage is a victimless crime, the consumers look for them, they don’t search for their consumers. If you were taking a walk down your street at night, and this guy drove by you, 99% chance you wouldn’t even know who this guy was or what he did, as he’d pay no attention to you either. SO HOW IN THE WORLD IS HE RESTRICTING YOU “TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A WALK AT NIGHT” !! ??

      I’d appreciate an actual logical answer. thanks
