Bring back National Night Out. Every night. Maybe it will stop the Wild Wild West mentality of these jerks. Sad.

How many stabbings and shootings must a city endure, before the acting mayor gets off her ass? The answer my friend, is blowin' in the wind . . .

When I lived in Dorxbury, this was a frequent fear of mine. I loved sitting on my front porch, chatting with the neighbors, but the occasional gunfire was (naturally) upsetting.
This easily could have been me, just sitting out on the porch like anyone.
Such a crappy situation.
