    As member Chrissy Cross has stated--she lives in a pretty crime free part of Fresno, as do I.

    HOWEVER---In just the past two weeks there have been many people shot and killed, stabbed, a one year old mauled to death by two rotweilers. several hit and runs with fatalities, a Greyhound bus in a head on resulting in fatalities, driver was DUI. What the hell is going on. I have lived in this off and on community for many years and have never seen anything like this. Not to appear as a Racist, but we do have a large immigrant and illegal group of folks living here.

    Well, one thing that is well noted in U.S. Crime Stats for each area/state, you have the Hispanic gangs and we have the Black gangs.
    AND, this isn't being racist, just being factual.

    Lon, just last night, here in Jacksonville, FL (to some, aka "Murderville, FL), we had a double shooting, but both parties will be ok, and a murder. All was in the predominately black areas of this city, not near us at all. The deceased man was laying in the front yard of a house with multiple gunshot wounds.

    Funny thing is, we just re-elected the same Mayor and Sheriff we've had.

    Darn glad we are getting ready to move out of here.

    Chrissy Cross & I live in separate but pretty Crime Free parts of Fresno, but the rest of this town has gone crazy with many murders by shootings, stabbings, hit & runs from drivers DUI. Not to sound Racist, but Fresno does have a large Immigrant & Illegal population. If Fresno had been this bad when I first moved here in the 70's I would have moved some where else.

    But, we've been "saying it" and now the "action" is taking place. Now we are paying for a spot for our boat there and doing some serious packing of things. I'm packing most of our dishes today. So, so much for the "talking" of it, the "action" part is now happening.

    Yes, "crime is all over the place", BUT, some places much, much more than others.

    Then you have gotten the deal together! I apologize for sounding so snotty! (couldn't resist a little impishness!).
