The guy who got shot was shot in the leg and cops found a bag of crack and a hat on the ground, he admitted it was his. Yes it's somewhat sad. But people know the consequences , As police said most shootings that happen are usually drug related on that side of charleston, of course . It was probably a drug deal gone bad. Nobody died.

All the shootings in Charleston happen on the West Side. It is also the side of town most heavily populated by African Americans. Coincidence?

You need more GAY people on the West Side to gentrify it. Gay people are the reason the east end is doing so much better than the west side.

I live in Kanawha city and can walk the streets any time of the day or night and not be bothered. No blacks in this area too so that has something to do with no crime.

Bob, that's the most ignorant talk I've heard in awhile. Surely you can't be that naive.

The color of ones skin has nothing to do with you being robbed. Look at those 3 teenage white boys who robbed those guys in SA. These morons beat and robbed some guy for an iPhone 5, and 45.00.

It's not the color of someone's skin, but rather the shade of blue pill that people need to get that money for.

Why is it that the top 10 most dangerous cities in America, with the highest violent crime and murder rates in the country, are majority black? Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago, Oakland.... Why is it that all of the best cities to live in are mostly white, with few blacks or hispanics? Google the most dangerous cities, then look up the racial demographics for them. Unless you are afraid of a little truth.
