    I sure would like to see Sheriff Morgan execute an effective clean up of the crime in this section of Pensacola. It is like a sickness making everyone ill… and the poor children whose lives are tainted forever because of the environment in which they are raised. The thugs rule these neighborhoods. There didn’t use to be crime in Pen sarcoma. Sheriff Morgan please help us.
