West Mesa violence prompts community safety meeting

West Mesa CDC is hosting a Neighborhood Safety meeting tonight:

West Mesa Community Development Corporation
567 West 10th Street
(Corner of Date and 10th Street)
6:00PM - 7:30PM or call at 480-964-3751

The meeting comes after Mesa's first homicide of the year taking place nearby and the barbershop shooting that occured last night. So far this year, Mesa has been able to avoid some of the violence of the past few years. Let's hope that the violence doesn't rise as the temperatures do.

As always the case, the homicide discussion has turned into a wild conversation full of conjecture and talk of illegal immigration. However, in a rare move, Nathan Glum, the father of the stabbing victim posted comments and set the record straight on some items in the Tribune story.

good for him to set the record straight. I know things happen with illegal’s, but many want to put the blame on them every time. its not good to have this happening in our community and I hope people can be more aware of what is going on around them. You know, get off your butt and go outside in the front and talk to people. I know it is hard for mesans to do that.
