I myself never thought there were so many gangs in Toledo, I had no clue! I have always lived on the South side of Toledo (just a personal preference) I recently moved to the North end and was rudely awakened to the fact of gangs, seeing as how they live at the end of the block. I think Mayor Bell needs to take off those rose colored glasses and live in the "hood" for a time and see what everyone else sees.

Good job, Taylor. The mayor is the one who is irresponsible, spouting of crack-pot ideas that sound good to him with no facts to support them.

David Clayton Warfield

While I'm sure the statistical sample is wildly too small to suggest causation, you do seem to have the better argument, Ms. Dungjen.


David C. Warfield brings up statistics and makes his point. Here is the kind of logic used by the mayor.

I'm Taylor Dungjen, crime reporter for The Blade. I've been covering crime in the Glass City since March, 2011. Lots has happened around here since then and, I'm sure, there's more to come. But what you see in print or on our Web site, toledoblade.com, is only a fraction of what goes on and there's always more to the story. I'm inviting you on a ride along as I cover crime in and around Toledo. Check back often for strange news, shenanigans, behind-the-scenes information you won't get anywhere else, and ramblings on my life as a crime reporter for 'one of America's great newspapers.'
