Homelessness and drug abuse in Little 5 Points and nearby areas

All are invited to a free screening of "Seattle is Dying" at 7 Stages, 1105 Euclid Avenue in Little Five Points, 7:30 pm, Tuesday, August 20.  

First broadcast in March 2019, this one-hour documentary explores the issues of drug addiction, mental illness, homelessness, and failed public policies in Seattle. It concludes with a look at innovative treatment solutions being pioneered in Rhode Island and a call to action. Its message speaks to some of the challenges facing the Little Five Points business district and also affecting parts of Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, Reynoldstown, Edgewood, and Candler Park.

Eric Johnson of KOMO News, the program's writer, producer, and narrator writes, "This program... asks the question, 'Why aren't we doing more? Why don't we have the courage to intervene in lives that are, in the face of grave sickness, reeling out of control?' It's called 'Seattle is Dying,' and I believe the title to be true. But it's not a hopeless program. There are ideas and concepts in the show that could start conversations about change."

Update to Three Robberies

Update to three robberies.
Below is a link to an AJC article about the apprehension on Friday morning of two suspects in the armed robberies that took place in our area on Thursday night/Friday early morning. Again we ask that if you can contribute anything to this case please notify Atlanta police department.

Recent Robberies in Our Area


RECENT ROBBERIES IN OUR AREA

Just a brief note to advise that a series of three armed robberies were reported on the night of Thursday, June 20th in our area. One happened in Candler Park on McLendon. One occurred on Caroline Street by the Edgewood Retail District, and the third in Inman Park on Euclid near Hurt Street. The police report that the perpetrators were three black males driving a “green or brown box type SUV.” Two of the males were armed with handguns. While we hope that this is a one-off incident, please be super careful and aware of your surroundings, especially at night. Watch out for slow moving vehicles. Lastly, if anyone in the area around Euclid/Hurt has video feed that might have captured some of this, please contact either Inman Park Security or Atlanta police.
