mean streets of alexandria, la.

in the 25 september 2007 alexandria city council public safety / transportation committee meeting, alexandria police chief daren coutee addressed the committee [video] and said according to the town talk article here that drugs are to blame for much of alexandria's crime.

so in the above video, kalb's mike magnoli took a ride today with alexandria police officer david foshee to zone six the so called "hot zone."

one thing you cant help but notice is towards the end of the video, officer foshee is responding to a possible fight or disturbance and you can clearly see those ridiculous speed bumps in the road impeding emergency response and unnecessarily wasting taxpayers money by wearing down and damaging police cars, emergency response vehicles not to mention the damage being done to citizens cars.
