    “there will be no place left safe enough for a child to ride their bikeā€¦if there is now.”

    It wasn’t safe when I was a child. Kids in cars used to intentionally run me off the road just because the car made them bigger than me on my bike. They only stopped when I started carrying a big ball bearing I fully intended to put through the windshield in front of the next driver trying to kill me. (Now with Stand Your Ground, I might have even avoided jail for fighting back.) They swerved when they saw me draw back.

    People are neither better nor worse than they used to be.

    David for better people

    This area of town used to be where good families raised their children. Kids used to ride bicycles up and down these streets.
    It’s not just the drugs…it’s the deterioration of our society. The infrastructure of our society has morally crumbled.
    I can’t help but think this will completely consume the whole nation by the next generation…in other words…there will be no place left safe enough for a child to ride their bike…if there is now.

    Any info on the person shot about 7pm in Lincoln Park off of Untriener? Or either of the two reported “Drive-By” shootings that took place off Massachusetts @ Diego Circle around 1am or the one at Harve and Medford at 12:29am? All occurring in known drug areas.
