I find this dreadful. The real purpose of the central planners is to force people in declining areas to move to more populated areas. By turning the lights out, the feral youth will be attracted to these less populated areas to prey on those living there. Crime in these areas will increase until the only people left in these areas will be the criminals. Almost all affected by this are black. This is very, very wrong.
I saw a youtube the other night of the last gal living on some block in Detroit (older white gal). She said she was waiting for a unit in some cheap housing to open up, she was wait-listed for 6 months. Bars on the inside and outside of her home. Across the street is the home where she grew up - all busted up and vacant. “And there is the tree that we had a rope swing...”
Even in the daylight with a new’s crew she was fearful pointing out the burnt-out, busted down homes from the garbage strewn suburban street. (And not another soul around).
But she did have a street lamp on, and near her house.
people CAN put their own lights up you know.....
