Violent Night

We had a seriously violent night here in the Delaware Valley last night and it just continues to show how the Mayor and City Council is doing absolutely nothing to stop it. I also think that some of it, especially the strange almost drive by shootings, is definetly gang related. One of the latin gangs is already overruning Trenton and Camden, and there have been rumors of the Crips as well. In the end, its really just very very scary, because its creeping closer to Center City itself, and also sliding out into the Great Northeast, which is supposed to be the safest place.

One of the interesting or humorous things is the fact that some of these neighborhoods who have the worst violence have the cutest names. How bad does a place called Strawberry Mansion sound?

I completely agree - doesn't Strawberry Mansion sound like such an oasis? Ha.

Thanks for visiting my site, BTW, Sparky. Loving your commentary!
