Young People Are Dying Too Early

A boy got shot here. The police is sitting right there, and somebody dies right here on the corner. It happens a lot, but I’m not sure what they’re doing to make any changes about that. Me and my daughter go outside and walk around with the dog, and sometimes I don’t feel comfortable because you never know what’s about to happen.  I knew a few of the young boys that got killed around that neighborhood. They’re very young, like 20, 21.
