    Getting close to home

    A gas station attendant down the street from my house where I fill up was stabbed to death this past Saturday in an armed robbery. Most of the violence in the neighborhood is domestic related, or the cops beating up drunks and shaking down drug dealers. Now, I guess, not so much. Neighborhoods changing since the housing market crashed.

    It's every left-wing politician's fault.

    Even the dead ones.

    Minorities are buying some of the foreclosure homes, because they can afford them.
    That will change any neighborhood that had a lot of SUB-PRIME loans.

    Sounds like it's time to invest in some bugalry bars for your windows and doors and "Warning Watchdod" for your outside condenser or condensers. Good luck. Thank you very much.

    With the cost of housing down in the burbs, the inner city crime element is able to leave its nest along with dozens and dozens of their cousins.
    These once pleasant suburbs will soon fall to crime and neglect as the original peoples move even further from the city so their children can grow up in a safe environment.
    It is a plague that cannot be addressed in todays politically correct incorrectness. The problem will continue until the truth is spoken at which time it may be too late.
    To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.

    The last neighborhood murder I recall was 2 or 3 years ago and it was a drug deal gone bad. Now, I do not live in an affluent suburb. Just a working class area with a mixed population primarily white, mexican, and middle eastern. I have lived in better neighborhoods and worse neighborhoods. Alot of foreclosures were bought up and turned into rentals. I believe therein lies the problem.

    your problem is lack of crime control and to much gun control.

    do you think that guy would be alive today if he had a gun? or do you think it wouldn't make a difference.
    I only drink a little, but when I do
    I turn into another person and THAT person drinks a lot

    Who knows? He was a 22yo college kid from India. Probably wouldn't have made a difference BUT if he had a double barrel shotgun he could have fired 2 shots into the air and the bad guy would have run for his life because loud noises are scary.

    I live in a low minority area....in other words there are very few blacks or mexicans or other minorities around here.... but yet crime keeps increasing in our area...... I just wonder if maybe some minority folks moved in here and pushed out all the good for nothing white pill heads and other low lifes if our crime would decrease.....

    I ask this because the vast majority if not all of the minorities I see are usually seen working in a store or business that I am visiting...... White folks fill the hoods the street corners the back alleys and the jails around here and its a white guy who is probably going to kill or rob you for your medicine around here.
