    large file, be warned:

    take a look at this shamless grab for funding by the cops in my neck of the woods. Its not TOO far off the mark, but its still a bit of an overstatement. I walk by the spot the bartender feels "threatened just walking to work everyday"all the time, and so long as you arent waving around a expensive jewelry or telling the dealers to fuck off, you won't really get bothered. Maybe somebody will go "rock?" as you pass, but thats about it.

    I have seen some pretty gnar fights though....


    and the "open drug market" is only slightly smaller after the "massive crackdown" of late. its moved half a block, and scatered to a few other spots, but it hasnt got any smaller overall. go cops!

    i used to tell dealers to fuck off dude. right down on hastings where i lived
    they got told daily. once they recognize you if you live in the area and get the
    picture you're not down for their shit, they'll leave you be. until the next group of
    dealers sets up shop anyhow..

    I've been down there a bunch of times on various trips to Van and personally I've never felt "threatened", but I can see why older people feel that way. Its the feeling of lawlessness or that nothing can be done if something happens that scares people.

    I believe that the problem may be too far gone to do anything. Like they said in the video, all they are doing is displacing the dealers. They just move down the block. If they put a cop on every corner it will just push them to other neighborhoods.

    its Larry not Gary, he's our ex-coroner turned mayor. He's also the guy the TV series "DaVinci's Inquest" is based on.

    And 150 people is no joke, it was wild. Watching that used to be my morning entertainment while waiting for the bus. And it wasn't just drugs...you could go pick up a 9mm for under a $100 if you wanted. Along with about anything else you could want...

    Jesus.
    I just watched the video. All they're doing, as you mentioned, is moving the market elsewhere .. not eliminating it.
