I am sick and tired of seeing on the news...
"A police officer was shot after stopping a drug deal at XYZ Middle School. The shooter was arrested which sparked a riot."
That's right, guy shoots an officer because the officer tried to stop him from dealing drugs at a school and the response is too riot when the
shooter is arrested.
Or in the same city a man was tired of the neighbor kids smashing his car with bricks and stuff so got a camera, recorded them doing it, then called
the cops. His house was shot up because he had the balls to call the cops on them. Thankfully he was at work, unlike the neighbors who collected
Or at highschool we used to play in a small farm land for miles league. But then we joined the city league and... No more night games. Why? We had
one, cars robbed, people beaten, so forth. The response from the city schools? Well we're just bad losers who should expect to be stabbed and
robbed and raped.
Friend of mine's parents moved to the city bought a nice little place. They moved stuff in, drove back to old place, and when they got back... Were
robbed already. They called the cops, cops followed the clues and... When they caught the people who robbed the house the family/neighbors freaked
and destroyed my friend's parents house and car.
And of course its not just here no no. Everywhere you go its the same deal. Welfare, dealing drugs, act like animals. What is it about living in
the city or whatever that makes people act like this?
Or a prime example. King Courts and Y Town aparment complexi. One is nice, the other a hell hole. One has a pool, is safe to walk through at night
if visiting friends or family, is nice and quiet. One you will be robbed, beaten, stabbed. Police don't even go near it any more after a car was
vandalized as it responded to a fire at the complex.
They are only two blocks from each other. Between them is an invisible line. The city/town line.
What is it? I don't get how maybe one and a half miles means a whole different world. Why are people who live in the city savages and animals while
people who live outside the city are nice, calm, quiet people.
Also, the last major crime to be committed in our little town? Done by people who lived in the city. And the one before that, and the one before
that, and the one... You get my point.
I don't want this to be about race because it isn't that. The person's who's house was shot up was black and his neighbors were white racist
little bastards. And the King Courts have more then just blacks or hispanics in them so its not just them making that place a hell hole.
Is it the water? Or the air? Or just from being packed in like sardines? I mean there has to be a reason why just two blocks means the difference
from being robbed and stabbed and having a nice quiet stroll through the complex on a warm summer eve.
