    This is one reason VSU enrollment is down.The city and VSU police need to patrol the streets from Gordon Street to Alden St and streets around the college.What does this make our city look like to our out town students?If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck then its a Duck!If it looks like a Thug and acts like a Thug then its a THUG!Come on lets enforce the law,create walking and bike patrols,lets catch the Roaches and cage them where they belong!
