In the 14 months I've been here, this is the second gang shooting 3 mins from my house.
1 fatal shooting each 7th month.

The first shooting happened in May last year, ending with 1 guy dead. That was 9 months ago.
1 dead body each 3rd month.

That's not including repeat vandalism, muggings and car break-ins in the neighbourhood. Last year I could convince myself that the shootings target specific people. But with 2 shootings so close to home in such a short period of time...

To a girl, there are things worse than being shot dead. And I can't go on assuming that nothing will happen anymore. Time to look at self-defense measures.
