    must be some nice ring. I guess I just don’t understand the mindset that allows one to settle a petty argument with shooting someone. wow.

    Hard to justify continuing to raise my 1-year old here.

    I know what you mean Amy. I also have a one year old and usually walk down and around 25th and 26th – in the area of the shootings. I did it this morning but I surely don’t feel good about the neighborhood. It’s unfortunate too – we’ve just began feeling better about it, trying to embrace the north Delridge area and have been trying to get more involved. I will say that I finally programmed the police non-emergency phone number on my cell phone (found it on the blog). I always have my phone on me when I walk and have used it before to scare kids off by ‘pretending’ to call someone when I know they’re up to no good – smoking pot in the park, etc.. It drives them away but I am a little nervous of these crazy people with guns and retaliation.

    For those residing in North Delridge please come to the North Delridge Neighborhood Council monthly meeting tomorrow, Wednesday August 1st at the Delridge Library. Meeting starts at 6:30 and ends at 7:45. One of SPD’s finest, Community Police Team Officer Brian Ballew, will be present to fill in folks on the recent shootings. Relentless citizen pressure is, and will continue to make a difference. Never hesitate to call 911, because if you think it looks strange, I will almost guarantee that it is strange.
