Drugs in Oakwood

July 14, 1996

* As a 15-year resident of Oakwood, I have a few comments on your July 8 article. I defy anyone to point out a million-dollar home in Oakwood! Contrary to what was stated in the article about a lessening of gang activity, all one has to do is go to any street corner in central Oakwood to be solicited for drug sales. The writer is correct on one point, the crack and smack dealers in the area have gone back to business as usual by simply stopping their war.

The rival gangs have joined forces for a common goal (uninterrupted drug sales) and the police have retreated. Once again we are hamstrung by our judiciary and have been outsmarted by gangs of thugs.
