The Belltown Messenger has provided this link to the power point presentation shown by Captain Steve Brown at the recent Belltown Community Council meeting. There are some interesting Belltown crime statistics in the presentation, including the significant increase in calls to police concerning narcotics since last year.
The Belltown Messenger newspaper continues to stick by their strong opinion that the YouTube "crackhead" videos were out of line. "These clips, no longer publicly viewable, were placed by an anonymous 26-year-old white female who moved into an apartment here and was shocked to find poor people hanging out in the alleys." reads the article.
We continue to remain surprised over here at Belltowner that a neighborhood newspaper defends crackhead rights over those of a concerned resident.
