East Memphis Crime Meeting

Home burglaries are hot topic at East Memphis crime meeting

Covering a town hall meeting can be tricky.  You don't always get emotional sound from people.  I was worried when I entered this one.  It concerned recent crime in an East Memphis neighborhood around Sea Isle School.  The crowd was pretty small.  But several residents shared their stories.  One stood out.  A man's home was burglarized just days earlier.  He later texted me photos of the aftermath.  The event also afforded the opportunity for me to speak one-on-one with the city's new interim police director.  He discussed a number of topics.. Including fighting crime in East Memphis.
