Best One-Man Neighborhood Watch 

Jonathan Pommerville

As we reported in a cover story last year, Brightmoor resident Jonathan Pommerville launched a one-man crusade to expose the people dumping on his hard-hit west side neighborhood. Armed with only a video camera, he has used his YouTube channel to try to shame the johns, prostitutes, dumpers, scrappers, and drug users who treat Brightmoor as a playground, and he wound up garnering the attention of local TV news. That has put Pommerville in a position to organize with his neighbors like never before, allowing him to take his activism to a new level.
