Close Northeast Prep Academy, Memphis, TN
Northeast Prep is an alternative school located at Mendenhall and Macon. The students have broken into our sheds and cars. They have been hanging out on sidewalks and carports on homeowners property. They are smoking pot, stealing and cursing the owners when asked to leave. There has even been gunfire. They have put fear into our lives for to many years.
The events that took place on April 19, 2018 are the last straw. This was suppose to be a peaceful walkout in protest of violence in schools. They were throwing rocks at houses in their path of destruction. There were 50-70 students running in our neighborhood, cussing and throwing gang signs. Police were called and arrests made. The school has NO control unless inside building. Once out it’s MPD and they can’t do it all. They have declined our home values and terrorized our neighborhood. We have had enough.
We the undersigned neighbors want Northeast Prep Academy closed or total police protection.
