  1. Thelinks apartments used to be a nice place to live 20 years ago. I’d be homeless before I’d move into some of these apartment compless. I feel for the people that have no choice but to love in these dangerous area. Don’t say crime is everywhere. That not true these stories are almost alway in certain areas of town. It’s not a race issue either it’s a neighborhood issues. Time to take those areas of town back. I live Ina neighborhood where we watch out for each other. That is the way it needs to be. See something inform the police. Hear something inform the police. I have loved in my neighborhood 5 years never heard a gun shot only seen maybe 5 police at homes in this area the entire time I have loved here.We walk our dogs after dark we are safe.
