“Anywhere you go it’s like that. It’s up to the politicians, mayors, chiefs to come into your communities, ride around and talk to the people. People are jusy trying to live,” Tony Kennerson, concerned resident, says.
Residents and neighbors around Moss Street are tired of all the violence in their neighborhoods.
They want a change to make the neighborhoods safer and more inviting to visitors.
“Kennerson explains, “Come together, talk to the brothers in the community so we can make it safer for our kids.”
