Re: “A Cultural Manifesto: Violence in Broad Ripple

"B Ripple Local" raises some valid points around the loitering issue. Most of Indianapolis is starting to get behind the idea that city officials need to take a radical approach to curbing the rise in violence. Here's a radical idea: turn the kids on the sidewalk into the patrons that businesses so desperately need. Allow 18+ listeners into bars/venues that provide live music and entertainment (most of which do not allow weapons on the premises). It's as simple as a wristband. Provide huge tax incentives to all-ages venues. Give younger audiences wider access to cheap entertainment, and they're less likely to spend their time causing a nuisance. At best, an aggressive curfew and no loitering enforcement will force the criminals to a new destination. Until local leaders are willing to think outside the box and provide real, engaging alternatives to criminal behavior, the crime will stay.

Re: “What would it take for you to ride?

It's just too damn easy to drive in this city. I can't think of a US city Indianapolis' size or larger that has such ample, inexpensive parking. I'm sure the local government has no incentive to force the issue, but until we make driving more of a hassle, why would anyone take the bus?
