PostSubject: Kind of Weird/Scary Around Here   July 28th 2011, 19:00

Last night there were three (unrelated) shootings in Colorado Springs. 4 people dead, 2 in the hospital. Three were teenagers in a car that someone drove by and shot and killed. One was a carjacking/murder at an Auto Zone less than 2 miles from my house. The other was at an apartment complex about 6 miles from my house. All within 2 hours of each other. There was a SWAT standoff this morning at a house while trying to locate a suspect who I guess got away/wasn't home. Then, there were two cop cars parked in my cul-de-sac for a while this afternoon. They could have been there for no reason, but it still seemed weird with everything that is happening. I hope they catch the suspects. Only one was shot and hospitalized-the other two are out there somewhere. Feel so bad for the parents of those three teenagers!

oh how sad indeed! our youth just don't realize how fragile life is.
I agree I feel horrible for their family!!!! I almost hate to watch the
news any more cuz all you hear is tragedy of how no one values life
any more. It's not just Colorado Springs that is scary !

Norma said it best! So sad and tragic that the world is what it is now. I swear you risk your life stepping out your front door anymore. WAtching the news just makes you realize how precious life is and how fast it can be over by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Wonder what happened to society to have so many bad apples these days. Tragically sad

Oh it's so true! I hate to even watch the news either because it's just so horrible...if you listen too much, you won't want to even leave your house.

We live in a very quiet community where nothing ever usually happens. Just a few days ago, a man saw a black suv parked outside on the street about 5 am and he went out to see if they needed help. The people in the car tried to rob him and when he told them he didn't have any money, they shot him in the face. Thankfully he made it back into his house to call for help and he lived. But that's just a couple miles from me! Way too close!

That is awful!

My husband and I were just talking about this. We suspect we will see an increase of this type of thing as the jobless rate continues to climb. It's unfortunate but historically we could be in for the worst depression know to man. Things change when people are truly fighting for their lives.
