Akron police called to store 297 times since 2017; councilwoman wants store closed

Quote:
Akron councilwoman Tara Samples went on a Facebook Live rant for 24 minutes, criticizing a carryout store and then started a petition to have it closed down.

Samples attacked Mr. Pantry on Copley Road after a double shooting last Thursday injured a man and a 16-year-old boy.

"We're going to blame the store at this point because they are now a nuisance," Samples said.

The councilwoman referred to crime reports she obtained through public records and said the business has done nothing "to offset the violence" outside of the store.

You can't say that. She isn't a white male.

Interestingly, I heard a story recently about someone wanting to do business on that street. One of the workers for the company was accosted by two youths during the middle of the day. The worker backed up into his truck, left the scene and the company declined to do business in that area.

The other side of this is when a grocery chain closes down in a similar area the " Food Desert " warriors do a quick drive by and move on.

I saw and read this article this morning. Samples blames the store. What a joke! The clientele, her constituents, are the problem. But you better not blame the "community" or you'll be called racist.

You can't make this stuff up. Tara Samples is the gubernatorial running mate of Dennis Kucinich. Her son was in custody for threatening to kill cops.
Now she wants to close down a market run by Botheyna Awad because the neighborhood is a war zone. Throw in her young rapper quotes, the devil etc...
Imagine if this were the running mate of a John Kasich.

I'm boycotting the city of Akron and have burned all my Akron apparel. If Kucinich should win I'll probably be leaving the state of Ohio and moving to East Harrison.

I'm continuing my 27 year boycott of ever visiting the northern half of Ohio. I'm vaccinated but it's best not to take any chances.

Looks like this story continues...

Concern growing over violence in Akron's Copley Rd corridor, 56 shootings since 2017

Quote:
There is growing concern over violence in Akron's Copley Road corridor after police responded to two more shootings in less than 24 hours.

Police have not made any arrests in either situation.

Gunfire in the area is nothing new for residents. There have been dozens of other incidents since last year.

Around 11:00 a.m. on October 3, officers responded to Jack's Deli in the 1300 block of Copley Road where a 33-year-old man reported he was chased and assaulted by three males. He was taken to an Akron hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said a 22-year-old man was also shot in the hand during the fight and later walked into an emergency room.

In Cincinnati, they can close a business if it is ruled a nuisance. They closed a club on Kellogg avenue after a shooting (last of several), and have closed a couple of other places. I think it is a city or county ordinance.
