Last week I saw a dead woman laying on the ground, today I saw a man shot with a gun and was at gunpoint in our neighborhood so I have quite a headache.
Because of my recent exposure to bad behavior and dangers in my own neighborhood, I have not enjoyed this week or the one past. I have to admit, it's hard sometimes.
Last week a woman was face down on the grass, at a bus stop. I waved down the police and they called it in. I was not sure if the lady was dead of just unconscious. I will never know. I only know I let the police know about it so they could take care of it.
Then this afternoon while we were running errands and doing some light shopping we drove right by a scene right out of Law & Order. A man with a gun, held in both hands, pointed at some guy who was apparently fleeing from a house, bleeding from his leg. I called police on my cell phone and gave them as much details as I could. My wife was totally upset and I had a delayed reaction to it. I have had a headache and stomach acid ever since and it took place today between 2 and 3 PM. The police dispatched an ambulance. I hope that man got away alive. We were right in the line of fire. My wife heard the gunshot before we approached the intersection of that house where the two men were standing, and it was enough to convince my wife to run through a STOP sign and get us home and out of the line of fire.
