Lot of activity in Lawrenceville, GA lately.
1) Wednesday night the city square got tagged. A number of businesses on the square got gang tagged and several cars on the square got spray painted. Certainly not a good thing for Lawrenceville. Fortunately, the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department is headquartered in Lawrenceville, so apparently someone contacted the Sheriff's Department and they sent over several crews of inmates from the county jail to clean the tags off the buildings and the paint off the cars. Good job for inmates, IMO. No more sleepy little square for Lawrenceville.
2) The new anti illegals law in Georgia went into effect Friday, so the Hispanic community called for a community boycott and refusal of Latinos to go to work. (Of course my wife and I went out to lunch at the first Mexican restaurant we saw open, Friday) Well, apparently the Mexican restaurant & market just outside downtown Lawrenceville burned to the ground Friday morning. The Hispanic community is claiming foul play, but the local fire department and the BATFE have made no determination of the origin of the fire, yet.
So, in short, we now have gang tagging and possible arson over the span of two days. I am definitely adding an interior holster to my vehicle, today.
