The Downtown Tracy Fight Club

If you're a regular Joe, you might want to steer clear of Gillett Alley. If you're a police officer, you might want to visit a tad more often.

There's an empty lot on the corner of Gillett and A Street that's become a hangout for folks with nothing else to do. And the scene of numerous fights and other disturbances. There have been, of late, numerous reports of fights there between armed, angry groups of teenagers, one sighted and immediately called in to police by yours truly. (It didn't seem wise to rush in alone, as there were plenty of guys with sticks looking for something to hit.)

For now, I'm calling the barren spot the "Downtown Tracy Fight Club." No rules, except that it's every goon for himself. But it'd be nice if the police take an extra turn refereeing now and then.
