It wasn't this week, but I live less than a mile from where the famous Sniper Shootings occured. I've been right next to that Shell Station.

It's not funny, and I'm not lying. The streets were shut down, and cops are everywhere. I didn't SEE it happen, but I know these scenes all too well by now.

And dude, I hear gunshots every other night.

Do you see any brains? On the pavement?

btw, it was a sarcastic laugh, if such a thing exists.

Do I see any brains on the pavement?! Why the fuck would I even want to see that?!

Well if people are getting shot all the time then it would be inevitable.

I never said people get shot all the time, even though they kinda do. "All the time" isn't every single day, it's just a helluva lot more often then most.

And by the way, you're joking about that "inevitable" part, right?

Pretty much.

Why don't you move away, then?

JohnnyNemesis

What makes you think life is as easy as just getting up and moving away? It really isn't. Especially when you come from a family that doesn't have the resources to do so. Plus, I don't WANT to move away; this is my home, this is where I was born and raised. I'm moving away to college soon, but that's for strictly educational reasons.

I'm not sure. We'll see, I guess.

It is exaggerated in some ways, but the sad truth is that a lot of what you hear is true. As far as the danger goes, the representation is quite accurate. I happen to live in one of the safer neighborhoods here, and it's still pretty dangerous.

Johnny has to wear kevlar when he picks up milk for his grannie ;o

There was some police chase down the parkway 5 seconds from my house, and i was heading home when they had it blocked off to do a crime scene investigation (the guy drove off the road and almost killed himself).
