Well it has happened again! For those of you who read my last post on this topic "Shooting in my Neighborhood," you're familiar with the level of crime in my neighborhood. However, for those of you unfamiliar I will give a brief review. I live in a two-year old college apartment complex with all the amenities (indoor and outdoor pool, weight rooms, free tanning, etc.) and pay a pretty penny to live here. The neighborhood before the construction of the apartment complex was a safe community in a rural part of town. My girlfriend and I have lived here for a year, but are moving out in four weeks to a lesser known apartment complex in the suburbs where the residents are mostly older people and young couples. The reason we don't have a house yet is that we are leaving this part of the state once I graduate from law school. Well, last Thursday (June 23) two men in ski-masks entered the apartment of a resident and demanded drugs from him. The resident was not the intended target of the robbers, but rather an innocent person with no drugs. The two men pistol whipped the resident and then made off with his wallet. When police arrived they discovered during their investigation 3-5 lbs of marijuana and a 5 lbs bag of an off-white substance in an apartment above the victims in the same apartment building. Apparently the two robbers had made a mistake with the address. The resident with the drugs was taken into custody and police are still in search of the two robbers who assaulted the innocent resident. Now, the above would be bad enough on its own, but on June 14 there was a shooting under similiar circumstances (see "Shooting in my Neighborhood"). During that incident a drug robbery took place that resulted in a struggle causing a pistol to be fired twice in an apartment seperated from others only by cheap dry wall. Luckily, no one was killed in that incident. In addition, last October a fight took place between two men visiting a stripper and that resulted in a pistol being fired into one of the hand of one of the men. Needless to say I'm concerned and I've attempted contacting my apartment management only to be told numerous times that the manager was unavailable (yeah, right). I'm waiting for the township police to return my call, because I want to know what steps they plan on taking to ensure the safety of my girlfriend and I. Meanwhile, Mr. Steyr (M-40) sits on my night stand loaded with .155 gram JHP goodness, but as much as I could go for live target practice I'd rather not be put into that situation.
