“Well the last guy was Greek and homeless”….You just answered your own question. HOMELESS!!!


I can’t believe I have to explain this but ok….

The last guy was not living at Westway. He was homeless but not a resident of Westway.

What about the guy that started the fires and stabbed the cop? He was a longtime resident. Also, not living at Westway. Which of any of these most recent crimes have been committed by people living at Westway.


That is not an explanation. You are issuing a command. I would like you to explain because no evidence would indicate this is a Westway issue.
