ABC 7 NEWS SARASTOA FL: Community policing stirs controversy in Newtown: Some say the recent effort to community police is just another way to unfairly target Newtown residents (Sarasota's black community). "If they target Siesta Key I’m more than sure they'll find more crime on Siesta Key,” says Newtown resident Lance Shabazz. “If you target St. Armand Circle you have more crime on St. Armands Circle, so any time you put a bulls-eye, you are going to find a lot" (yeah especially in Newtown).
Lance Shabazz, what the hell are you talking about, there are no dead British Toursists laying in the streets of Siesta Key, that's what happened on your turf in Newtown, there are no dead bodies lying in the streets of St Armands circle, that is also on your turf just about every other month in Newtown. It appears the Newtown is the reason that Sarasota Fl is the one of the top most violent place to live in Florida. Newtown has helped put Sarasota on the 'map', we are now #12 as the most dangerous place to live in Florida, Sarasota has a crime rate of about 63 per one thousand residents.
