Re: “North Chuck is the most dangerous place in the world

Many of the previous comments berate the author for not doing something to change the exaggerated situation. While I do not know what other efforts he may be taking, the fact that he wrote this article is doing something.
The article points out the problem in shocking pictures to most of us. That is a good thing because if the majority of folks in North Charleston do not band together with the police department to stop the trend, it will only get worse. One day, it could be just like the author wrote. The only difference would be that people, like the author, who had the resources to leave, would. The only ones left would be the criminals and the very vulnerable. What a terrible scenario that would be! North Charleston Police has much on their plate, too much for them to handle alone. They need the participation and cooperation of the citizens their city and neighboring cities (Charleston, Goose Creek, Summerville, Hanahan, Mt Pleasant.) Neighboring city constiuents work in North Chas, but live elsewhere. During business hours,North Chas swells to three times the its residential population. Many of us who do not live there work there.
We are benefitting from the opportunities found in the city, but not contributing to it in revenue or support. We all need to pitch in instead of bitch in. It is a community problem and it will take a community solution.
The author has issued a challenge to us, both those who live there and those of us who work there. is it a challenge we are willing to accept? Or do we really care enough to bother? Only actions and time will tell.
