National Night Out In Mount Vernon by Shawn Montgomery

Mount Vernon — This year’s National Night Out activities took place on Saturday, August 5th, from 5-8:00 P.M. on the grounds of the Levister Towers complex in the courtyard behind the mini precinct’s 70 West Third Street location.


The Mount Vernon Police Department joined the community for an evening of food, fun, music, dancing, and information on useful resources for the community. Mount Vernonites from all over the city enjoyed a free barbecue served by members of the police department, free giveaways, and bouncy castles for the kids.

National Night Out, a nationwide event designed to promote crime prevention awareness and strengthen community relations with members of the Police Department, as well as obtain information about the department’s many programs, is celebrating 30 years of observance in communities across the nation. Each year the MVPD brings together community organizations and other city agencies for National Night Out activities.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
