    Did it ever occur to you to not give up on the ‘old area’ and to be one of those to come back and try to make a difference? People would rather run away than try to turn things around. I guess that’s just the way it is.

    This is no surprise to me I grew up there and this is why I don’t show my face around there because the people are insane mainly the younger crowd has no respect shooting anyone at all I have seen many shootings over there way that never made the news, it’s all black on black crime so when are the people going to wake up when everyone is dead I am guessing so this is why I don’t go back to the old area, it’s not safe anymore, maybe someone will learn to use there hands instead of weapons.
