This also reminds us that homeless people aren't committing violent crimes. How many shootings happen at 12th &elm or 15th & elm, etc. all of these crimes are from people loitering all day but who often live in a nearby building but don't have to work to live. At least the guy asking for money or selling streetvibes is doing SOMETHING. The guys loitering at 13th & walnut and 15th & vine contribute nothing to society but take up a lot of our policing resources.

Although there has been 3 murders the past week in Cincinnati. Cincinnati is on pace to have the fewest murders  in a decade.

Kids...

I've ran into the same group of kids twice.  4 African American kids probably age 14-15ish, dressed in prep attire (tan khakis). I've seen them during the day and at night. I watched the group walk down republic checking for unlocked cars. Today as I was walking back to work from OTR they followed me and threw rocks.  Apparently they liked my ray ban sunglasses.  This happened on chestnut between central and john. 

Watch yourself out there. Had I not looked behind me I probably would have been hit in the back of the head.

Possibly. I live in the area and I haven't seen them do anything suspicious, but I will keep my eyes peeled.

I've lived in OTR for a couple years and have never felt this nervous to walk to and from work up until now. For a few minutes I thought I was going to get jumped.  I can tell these kids are going to be a real problem.  They have the no fear lets be tough attitude.

Hyde Park Flasher Strikes Again!!

Quote
Police say the suspect has flashed women in Hyde Park and Oakley about 10 times over the last two years.

He approaches them and speaks with them. Once he has the woman’s attention, he exposes himself and fondles himself.

Still sucks when a prostitute (Candance Demoss) is killed right outside my house while I'm gone on a trip. Much thanks to the drug-dealing neighbor that the police won't bust and who is still free (for now).

Tell the police. Your information is valuable to them in planning their activities. You aren't bothering them. They want to know what has happened to you and appreciate your cooperation. Each district has a resource officer whose job is to connect with people in the area and you can email the district commanders as well. Take photos or videos with your phone. Send the photos or video to the police. We pay a lot to the police. Let's get our money's worth. Here is a link: http://www.cincinnati-oh.gov/police/contact-us/.

Trust me, I've done that. Our neighbors have done that. They want his supplier, he's low-ball - that is, until the murder. I didn't know until that happened that he was operating a whore house.

She was a prostitute?  Yikes. She had virtually nothing in her record that implies she's a prostitute. And news reported she had two kids, age 4 and 2 even though she's only 20.  Crazy.

Apparently. She had no custody of the kids. Had theft, drug, OVR charges and more. I didn't know my neighbor had a side job until an officer told us about it.

But we've been marking plates by recording who comes in and out of the house for a while. We are also in the process of installing some cameras on our properties to watch his (discretely). And his landlord may evict him - he hasn't made his rent payments for a month or so.

I'd be leery of saying she was a prostitute without being sure but you're probably right.
Think this was just turf BS?

Not sure, but we've started a neighborhood association basically just trying to get rid of him.

Cash reward offered for information on Northside murder

"A cash reward is being offered for any information that will lead to the arrest of the person who killed 20 year-old Candace DeMoss last Sunday. Candace was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds last Sunday in a Northside front lawn.
A local limousine company, where Candace's cousin works, is offering a cash reward, up to $5,000, for any information on Candace's death."

University of Cincinnati campus ranked among most dangerous in U.S.

It ranked the most dangerous colleges in America by averaging FBI crime data per capita from 2008 to 2011 for schools with enrollment above 10,000.

We finally had to remove the memorial. There were far too many folks coming up every night blaring music, sitting in their cars drinking and smoking, and well... visiting the memorial. They would then sit and honk their horns at my neighbor - who I'm not sure made bail.

That's unfortunate. While I am more of a traditionalist on stuff & would opt for flowers at a cemetery, I understand that street memorials are very important to some folks.
That said, I am assuming the guy who got busted didn't own his home (hard to get a mortgage based on pusher/pimp income) so I hope nobody decides to vandalize the house.

I really wish the city would change the parking meter laws so that drivers are not allowed to park at damaged meters.  I see people taking baseball bats to the meters practically every night so that they can park for free the next day.  It's insane.  Look around OTR and you'll see at LEAST one damaged meter every block.
See a meter vandalized? Call 911

Written by Carrie Blackmore Smith

OVER-THE-RHINE — The average driver probably doesn’t mind, but parking officials, police and some merchants are fed up with the person – or persons – decapitating parking meters on the streets of this neighborhood.

Meter tops began disappearing in June, Cincinnati Parking Facilities Superintendent Bob Schroer said. His staff has refitted more than 175 at a price tag of $35 each in hardware alone.

“We’re seeing it pick up more and more.... On one street, I bet we replaced domes along there six times in the last nine weeks,” Schroer said. “Just Monday we counted 37 (without lids) and replaced 19 or 20.”

No, but there are at least 2 or 3 cars PER NIGHT that drive up and down the street laying on their horns in front of his house (and indirectly, mine and many others). After the candlelight remembrance, they took to throwing rocks and bricks at his house - to which someone inside responded by shooting a gun out of the window! Keeping it classy.
