Well when you let the sleaze into the area and don't care what they do then this is the kind of criminal activity you are going to get. Other sleaze will learn that this is the place to move to do their drug trafficking and other criminal activity. I was on concord road when a drugged up Afro American man going 70 miles an hour weaving in and out over a double yellow line almost crashed into me. Now my wife and I risk our lives going to the thrift store. Now I have a lot of friends in the police department and they can not be everywhere. But low life criminals that come here to do criminal acts must be stopped. We must sent the message to other sleaze criminals that we will not have them in Smyrna or Cobb county. We need to have officials with the guts to make it so tuff on criminals that they will know that this is not a place for them to come and break the law. We don't need for Cobb County to become Slobb County. Some of our citizens are tired of all talk politics. We need protectors and defenders of our county and city of Smyrna. As Citizens we must get tuff on criminals and crime. Start up community crime watchs and push our officials to get tuff with us on crime. Take as many crazed drivers off the road by taking away License for good if they plan on driving under the influence on anything . Do not let criminal sleaze make your property and the county you live in become worthless.

It is a shame that Marietta is as crime riddled as it is. Now they are getting closer to Smyrna. Smyrna's Police Force is highly outnumbered, but they do an awesome job of keeping us as safe as possible. I hope the Marietta Police Dept. Does a better job in the area of this Target store, which is in their jurisdiction.
