Firstly, We would need to know where these perps live or if they were simply in the area visiting, before we condemn the area ????

There should be better lighted parking for those who want to frequent RVC as many park in the Center Ave parking lots in the wee hours.

I've read the comments above. What seems to be missing here is the possibility these guys that have been committing the crimes have been arrested before? I'd bet you dollars to donuts they have , benefiting from the turnstyle justice system everywhere. Our efforts should be lobbying to those who release these guys w/ a slap on the wrist whereby verifying crime does pay. This once again is due to voter apathy on election day when judges go up for reelection.
