    That is easier said than done. Having first & last month’s rent, plus deposit plus the transportation to actually move is beyond many people and not just on the North side. Some people live in homes on the North side that were / are owned by family bought years ago when the North side was a nice place to live. I work on the North side and haven’t had any problems and hopefully won’t. There are many good people here. Crime happens everywhere, have you paid attention to all the shootings on the South side? There are actually more shootings on the south side. I don’t know why these teenagers shoot each other, I wish I did.
    I feel so sorry for the families that have lost children because of all this, I also feel for the family of the shooter. My son was a victim of an attempted carjacking/robbery. He was shot and died instantly, I watched the family of the shooter in court and I can’t imagine how I would have felt if my son had done the crime.

    Yep-but arm them, don’t put them in St.Louis unarmed like they did on the borders and at first in New Orleans after Katrina.

    “There are hundreds of millions of patriotic, responsible, law abiding,
    Pro-2nd amendment, NRA card carrying American gun owners in this country who exercise good common sense every day! The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, gangs, and bad parents……period.”
