    Any idea where this is? Can you imagine being a decent, peaceful, responsible, law abiding citizen and having to live in a hell hole where folk act a fool ??? A lot of time it’s folk who don’t live there.

    Section 8 Housing is not a bad thing. I placed my 1st home in CenterPoint on Section 8 to help a young lady get a foundation. That is what the program is for….those who NEED it. However, it has become a Mentality, a Lifestyle, a come up. A way for young women to harbor/groom irresponsible men with cell phones and shoes that cost more than rent. This in turns breeds more irresponsibility, which leads to poverty, which leads to crime and it becomes a cycle. Generational curses. And nothing will help except prayer and accountability. Just my opinion, not the law.

    There is not any accountability in Centerpoint and there hasn’t been in years. There is constant problems from the Section 8 apartments. I feel for the good people that are forced to live there but something should have been done a long time ago. I’m sure the buildings have been beaten to hell and back so condemn them and knock them to the ground. Enough is enough.

    Bond Circle is w/i walking distance of Center Point Park & the $700,000 Tea Party House. `When the mayor & council gets the ditches covered on Polly Reed Rd it will be prettier walking to the park & driving to Betty’s tea house but don’t forget to carry your guns. Our 4 contract deputies are busy serving ordinance violations.

    I have a $100 bill that says the mayor puts one of those $80,000 cameras by the Patterson house. Are you up for that wager Annette? I mean it is a “somewhat” historical house….

    Trussville will become that eventually too.. give it 10 years

    I won’t take your wager bc I probably would lose, however, a house that was moved to this location plus all the renovations prevent it from being “historical”. Not qualifying or a history of drugs being made in the house didn’t stop the mayor & council from buying the house. Did anyone other than myself ask the mayor & council to test the tea house for safety health due to drugs being previously cooked? LEO were wearing hazmat suits (per witnesses I personally spoke to) A resident said a washer dryer was stolen out of te tea house recently so I suppose that would be a reason for a camera to protect the $700,000 house. Forget people being shot. $80,000 would pay for a deputy to patrol our streets

    Seems that Centerpoint has turned into Chicago. Murder and theft there everyday. 🙁

    You CAN see one of those blame cameras from the back of the house, across the duck pond !!! City council is afraid of these thugs, and won’t take anything away from them. The “hood” will not go away.

    It just gets worse every day. So sad and disturbing.

    According to my mother who purchased that washer/dryer and donated it, it had to be an inside job since alarm didn’t go off and no signs of breaking and entering. Why has it taken so long to open that house? Isn’t it for weddings?
