What, pray tell, might you mean by "destroy" that area?

How is it the camera on my phone has better quality pictures then this security camera? This looks like it came out of the 1990s. And Simon, "destroy" might be a strong word but I understand your intent. We really do need to rebuild this area. There are plans to do so. Since you are concerned perhaps you'd be interested in working with the Hyattsville city council committee related to that topic. Or were you just more interested in venting and implying a racial slur?
