YOUR TURN: The most dangerous neighborhoods

Posted: Updated: Oct 10, 2010 10:28 AM

This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from Anthony Prather. Prather is reacting to the national study released this week claiming that Memphis has two of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. Pather says he lives in one of them.

In his words:

I was very distressed to read that my neighborhood was listed as one of the most dangerous neighborhoods to live in. It looks like we are only concerned when something happens downtown that would make Memphis look bad in the local and national media. We need more police officers here in my neighborhood along with some of those cameras that are going to downtown.  I have lived on my street for 16 years and I know that things could be better with a little help from law enforcement.  I would challenge our Mayor and Police Director, and the community to help us turn this bad report into a good one.

That's Anthony Prather's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
