Of all his completely empty PR stunts, Sly going door-to-door in the neighborhood near the trail where the serial murders have taken place tops them all.
He needs to go door-to-door in the 24 hundred block of College Avenue sometime after 11:00pm on a Saturday night and chat with the residents about reducing violence and reporting criminals to the police.
Please let us know when this happens and how it turns out.
And take clueless bozos like Christa Dubill, who thinks this stunt is a cutting-edge crime fighting strategy, along for the ride. She hasn't been east of the Plaza for a very long time.

How about Sly requesting the mothers to turn in the guns of their sons?

Until the Mothers do the right thing and stop the criminal behavior in their home, they will continue to bury their children.

Appears Perfect Village in a back handed way is admitting they have more of a drug issue than they want you to think they do.
