  • I pass this location daily. Please, Please bulldoze and get rid of the rubble. This is the second building to burn in a two block area, in the last couple of months.

    • Silly rabbit, If arkley razed it, how would he collect on the insurance? Tricks are for arkley not for y’all.

  • Just please tare it down!! They can’t seem to keep people out,and they set fire to it all the time. It’s an eyesore(another) and the fire Dept.could use it as a practice burn!! I’m glad no one has been hurt!!

  • Why not try to give the house-less people safer shelter?
    It doesn’t take much to loose your home and end up in the streets.

  • This is, what, the seventh or eighth time in the last few years?

    EPD needs to do their fucking job, and arrest people camping in it. Show up in the middle of the night randomly every few weeks, surround it, and every parasite in it gets tossed in jail. And not let back out.

    How much more destruction are we going to let the parasites do? They have no respect for anyone’s property. Every building they’re allowed to infect burns down. Every non-flammable campsite gets filled with mounds of garbage. These aren’t people who are “down on their luck” – they’re willful parasites that exist by destroying everything around them.

    Need to get the railroad going so they don’t have abandoned buildings around.

    Plus, with a railroad running- box cars could be used to transport growers to the wall for deportation.

    Box cars could head south packed with growers and return full of fresh produce, it’s win win anyway you look at it.
