Must be a dandy suburb.
I did a Google search on Misty Pine Drive, San Antonio, TX.
A home for sale in the 4100 block ad lists 38 registered offenders within one mile.
Is it an enclave for sex offenders.... or is this normal in Texas?
Scary.


And, I put the address of the incident into the Crime Tracker site, and the area they stopped is smack in the middle of one of the known "bad areas" in that town. As you can see from the screen capture, the crime rate is overwhelming in this area. So, the odds of it being gang related are very high, not 100%, but very high none the less.



Crime Tracker Page where the ScreenCapture was taken

When in a strange area for any reason, situational awareness is CRITICAL, especially when your family is with you. This is not blaming the victims here, only stating the value of situational awareness can be the difference between life and death.

You obviously are not wise to the streets. No offense, you are just barking up the wrong tree from your ivory tower


Funny.

Actually, I know very well that this area is a high crime area and that it is most likely a "gang banger" that committed this act, but I was just having fun letting people hang themselves with their own stereotypes and racist inclinations.

So far it seems that some people believe that since this was in the city and it was a grey Impala, it must have been a black gang banger.

Forgive me for having fun at your expense and for you falling in to it. It seems a bit disingenuous for you to lecture me about street wisdom when you weren't even wise enough to see what I was doing.

Streetwise, to me, means letting the PC ass kissing up to people that are outside of the arena, stereotyping often helps to keep your ass alive.
Someone else can interview all the people in a given neighborhood to see if it is a 'bad' neighborhood.... I will stand guilty of being non PC when it comes to the safety of my family.

It is possible that the make and model of the family's car was responsible for them getting shot.
The perp may have thought it was a gang rival that drove a similar vehicle.
Yes, I said GANG RIVAL.

Your post will antagonise a few people for obvious reasons. It's saying the family hold some responsibility for being attacked.

In a better world, people should be able to get lost, park up and have their lights shine anywhere at all without the risk of death. It's ridiculous that anyone should face death for doing what this family have done.

Thing is, we don't live in that better world, we live in this one. Being 'streetwise' is living life on the premise that most people present a risk to our safety or well-being. 'Don't stand out' is one of the main rules. I agree with you about being




mindful of your surroundings


It's such a shame that the price for being naive can be a six-year old kid getting killed. As much as it's worth being 'mindful,' isn't it a shame that the shooters aren't 'mindful' of being caught or 'mindful' of not being assholes?

Anyway, I just wanted to agree with you before too much flaming started.


I wouldn't agree there that's not what he said at all to be honest. He never really suggested the family held any responsibility he was just saying it could or may have been avoided.

I agree. Stereotyping can play a big role in saving your ass on the street, but this is an internet forum where we are supposed to have intelligent discussions. Making assumptions in a discussion about the people who commit a crime based solely on the type of car they drive or they fact this occurred inside of a large city is completely ignorant.

Only if they were driving an Impala. Gang bangers only drive grey Impalas.

I learnt that today.

Then you still have much to learn.
Black Escalade.

Escalades too?

Well, now things are becoming complicated. I see plenty of them at the golf course.

Why don't you provide a complete list of vehicles we need to be able to recognize as the official vehicles of gang bangers.

My Vietnamese neighbor owns a white Escalade. Is he a gang banger, or does it have to be black?

I really need your help in becoming "street wise".

Racist inclinations?

What race are gang members, exactly?

Good question. Perhaps one of our street wise friends can answer that.

You believe he may run a string of grow houses because he's Vietnamese and owns a white Escalade?

My apologies. Perhaps you can educate me on what you actually meant. What gang bangers live in the city and drive Impalas?

I ask you only because you made the logical leap from talkin about potential gang member to 'racist inclinations'.

So please, if you'd be so kind, answer the question and not pass it off to someone else.

I just want to understand the way you think.

Of course not. This is another case of you jumping to conclusions when there is no evidence to support it.
