Could you imagine living like this? Innocent people, especially children, dying because they were on the wrong street at the wrong time. Some just giving a hug to another, in broad daylight. As the gang activity increases in my own city, it makes me think and my heart goes out to those who don't feel safe in their own neighbourhoods. Imagine, not being able to walk down the street without the fear of being killed? Too much.

No, I could never imagine living that way. There are benefits to smaller cities. We have 111,000 here and there are no gangs. We are neighbors to 2 cities with 300,000 between them and no gangs. We don't miss anything except big concerts, pro sports and a few other odd and ends. But they are only 90 minutes away in Toronto. Asian gangs in your area ... I am sure most cities have some gang activity, probably even ours, but they are not even a shodow of what big cities have ... Toronto and Vancouver are the most notable.
Where is that unoccupied island in the west indies that I would like to go to and will have a population of maybe 10 people.

The Asian gangs are gathering steam here. They're responsible for a lot of the "criminal activity" right now. Our police force is hiring new officers to try and deal with it but it's scary to know that people crossing Minoru Park (where the hospital's situated) are being attacked at knifepoint. We have "booze cans" and brothels springing up all over the was just busted in the vicinity of a school. We have grow ops, grow rips, etc. Home invasions happen weekly here. It's quickly getting out of hand and it's really sad...this was a little community where everyone knew everyone else. This story hit home with me. I guess it's what happens when noone cares/intervenes.

You're lucky George. And, ftr, I'd be #11 on the island.
