It is the same in any major metropolitan center. There is an area where poverty and crime reign. Gangs are a substitute for dysfunctional families and they all try to claim turf. Fights break out and the violence escalates. The drug dealers manipulate the gangs and bring their "soldiers" up through them. The kids that would turn out as good citizens are forced into the gangs for self protection and are corrupted.

And the usual news accounts of violence do not mention that.
Same in my city. Probably 85% of the gun violence here occurs in one section of the city.

Thats the rub isnt it, crime isnt rampant across the nation, its generally located in specific hotspots mostly in cities and suburban localities. City folk are like rats trapped in a cage, they seek to have their domains made safe by their reps and the reps generally refuse to admit that their issues are situational not widespread across the nation.

Chicago, NYC, LA, Miami, Boston and other localities need to fight local crime locally, not statewide or nationally. Our national reps cant help but take tragic situations and magnify them for the causes that fit their agendas. School shootings are less likely to directly impact us than the plane were riding in crashing.

Time to wake up and see whats real instead of listening to turds spew their knee-jerk reactionary garbage!
