    Such foolish acts shows us how despreate times are becoming for many who cannot find work? Sedona need to open up more oppertunities for young artist to see their wares and or talents ...many cannot afford the high rent...and haveing vendors would only attract more tourist giving them more products to choose from, I hear many tourist complain of so little to do at night in sedona allowing acts to perform in safe areas would promote a more frindly atmosphere...now it is a retirement twon who rolls up their streets way to early.I am a senior citizen , believe we need to help the youth here in our area.

    When 20 million people are out of work, they get desperate.<br />Its wrong but I guess they think they can rob and get away with it.<br /><br />We need jobs.

    There are many, many more cities in this great country of ours with a MUCH lower cost of living than Sedona. Go, explore them all! From your bad spelling and grammar it seems to me that you were dumb enough to move here and now you want to complain about it.

    I can almost guarantee these people reside in either Cottonwood , Camp Verde , or Rimrock and were high on methamphetamines.
