First, I would like to state that I really dislike this 'corner'. I don't say 'hate' because that puts too much emotion behind it, and I really don't have that kind of energy.
Secondly, I would like to say that there are some really good people who go to that store. Not everyone who goes there is looking for drugs or a fight. Just most, lol. No, really. There are some very nice and kind people who are regulars at that store.
Everyday is not the same old 'oh, someone got shot...again', that is a rare occurance that maybe happens twice a year.
The JCPD could perhaps respond quicker, but that is partially our fault for not voting for better funding. Another is the fact that they are just as sick, I imagine, of the stupid stuff as the cashiers are.
