    Well, I see one former student who lives with his gran in the VOP across from the CPC on Magnolia. I see "Tootie" (blue jacket) who lives with his mother and brother in Sec 8 on Malden. Tootie (and his glock and flock)used to hang out on the Billy Broncho playlot until I started positive loitering so my students could play safely outside after school. Sadly, I only had one grandmother to accompany me. Fortunately, James (Cappleman) would try to walk by or respond to texts. The police (12) were barely a presence despite my calls. One officer wouldn't go after the woman who threatened to beat me down. Take note that the path they chose was the "Safe Passage" route to Courtenay, and then to Chase Park. This is real: the drugs, the guns, and the fact that some of these young men are fathers to the children we serve. Howard boys north, trap houses south, we're in the middle/thick of it. Sick of it.
