Houston Texas Gayborhood Montrose
After recent shootings and killings in the gay neighborhood MONTROSE, in Houston Texas, locals are fighting back.
The LGBT community has had enough. MyFoxHouston.com reports:
Their signs made the message clear. It’s time to “take back Montrose.” Brad Janacek organized dozens of concerned Montrose residents Friday night to peacefully protest at the intersection of Westheimer and Montrose. They’re asking The Houston Police Department for more police presence in the area. “We’re fed up as a community and I don’t live here anymore because of the crime,” said Janacek. …
Protester Bobby Lowe thinks the LGBTQ community should be worried and not just about these latest violent incidents, but about a perceived uptick in car burglaries and thefts.
“I think it’s about gay people being targeted. They’re coming here for a reason and the reason is because gay people, [criminals] feel like their easier targets,” said Lowe.
Police plan to increase their presence – while most of Houston does not seem to really care and no one has reported on the upswing of shootings, except Fox.
