If you scroll on down the blog, you'll see I had a chat today with Mayor Mark Stodola on the various ways the city is responding to concerns about crime.
He shared this nugget:
Perhaps you wondered how the North Little Rock youths charged in the recent River Market carjacking (the one where the victim was shot and left for dead) got to the fair city of Little Rock.
Stodola says they hopped on the River Rail on the north shore to get to the River Market So there, naysayers. People DO ride the trolley. It's not so great for carjacking, though. Limited range and the fare box revenue is hardly worth the effort..
