I love GR. I'm actually planning to live downtown in a loft in a year or so. Crime happens everywhere, and GR is a generally calm city, especially compared to the east side.

yup...and it was all because a guy on a ninja bike was being chased through the city blocks a 70mph, hit a curb, and crashed into a house..instantly killing himself...and the people blame it on the cops...they weren't even chasing him at the time of his crash

all that for a gang shooting they say gangs are a porblem now in GR but im sorry when i lived their i was living in not the best part of town and gangs were just as known as they are now. u just have to watch ur self and not goto the parks at night other wise u WILL get jumped, their gang shooting al the time its just a part of the city life and theolny reason we see it so much now is that the media is telling people about it other wise the non city people wouldnt have a clue.
