Um. So yeah. I don't know if any of you heard about this, but basically, last night around 10p (when I was walking home from a friend's house), there was a stabbing/gunning incident at my cute, little, drug-infested Pioneer Park. Yep, the one directly across the street from Petunia.
Here's the story: Stabbing At Pioneer Park.
So odd. I was walking home 15 minutes from when it happened. I didn't hear anything unusual other than the "normal" sirens I hear every night. When the officer took the assailant down, I don't remember any gun shots, even.
1. Dallas, be more aware of what is happening, right outside your door! I was totally into a book and I didn't hear a thing!
2. I mean, how do you stop people from simply deciding to stab and kill?!
I'm fine. The neighborhood (people) are fine, but it will be interesting to hear what the homeowners say.
I recently attended our community council meeting where we met w/ the police department. Basically, Utah's holding facilities are crammed full. The drug pushing is at a high (for the year) but the park - overall - has improved from year's past. Still... it makes you wonder: if Central Park did it, why can't we (probably $, Dallas...)?
Maybe I should look into very fashionable, Kevlar pants...
