One of the things about my job is that I spend a lot of time driving into bad areas of town and I have come up with a checklist of obvious clues that you are not in a part of town you want to be...Today I went to a shooting in one of these areas and you know something is wrong when there is no crowd wondering what is going on...because they all knew it was going to happen...or they aren't surprized.You first have to work hard to get in there because the town designers have made all the streets one-ways going the wrong way to make it difficult to move around in there...Then you most definitely will see a shopping cart nowhere near a shopping mart.And if you don't see a bunch of shoes hanging from a light pole or wires then you will see damage road signs...making it just as hard to get out as it was to get in...
