Metrojacksonville launches its first episode of a new feature examining the kind of crazy way that counterproductive and appalling stuff happens in Jville. This Week: Hemming Park. Join Joshua Taylor and Amanda Morales for a painful chuckle after the jump!



Josh Taylor and Amanda Morales of Metrojacksonville.com discuss why Jacksonville can't have nice things in this amusing factual recount of a recent attempt to deal with poor people using a historic park in Downtown Jacksonville Florida.  Filmed in Partnership with Post Newsweek and News4Jax.com
