I think that you just fail to see the big picture that's all...
peronally i know that I live in a bad neibourhood, (a I've let you all know times before when I've told you how I've not been able to get home cause of the streets being tapped off)... the last time someone was stabbed near me (in my neibourhood) was sunday night/monday morning).
the time before that was abouit 5 - 6 weeks ago...
but shit happens, generally if you stay away from trouble then trouble stays away from you.
regardless of what happened in the early hours of monday morning, it didn't stop monday being a nice day with plenty of people being in the street being nice people to walk past who smile and say hello, (not like the supposably better area of town where people ignore each other!).
You see there is a bigger picture to all neighbourhoods. for those that live in a basically poorer area there is often a greater community spirit, people actually talk to each other, (even when they don't know each other). people are friendly, shop keepers know your names etc...
you just get a sense of community and belonging that you simply don't get in a 'nicer' community.
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
