If you're not part of the problem, you aren't going to get killed or robbed. People are not going to harass you as you're walking down the street. But I've seen more criminal activity lately, and I do worry about gun violence now. I'm worried about stray bullets.

If I could afford to move right now, I would. It's a poor area and people will make money any way they can, even if it's hurting the rest of the community. It was never really a good neighborhood, but it was safer. I've seen a rise in criminal activity over the past 5 years.
