Its a choice, if you live in an area where it is known for violence, and you ignore it well!! But no one deserves it, and being in the wrong place at the wrong time is coincidental. As far as the life style that is also a choice everyone should know the difference between right/wrong it's a person decision in regards to which one you are going to choose.

Whats nice about Richmond now is shot spotter. They are detecting these shootings and the people who are being shot at are surviving and having to live with their injuries because of their way of life (gang members and drug dealers) Just in April there were no homicides in Richmond but their were shootings where there were people injured like these two.
I feel the thugs are thinking now that shot spotter is in the area. They locate the shootings and the place the shooter is shooting their guns. They are fleeing but their victims are surviving.
I know what stray bullets do to innocent people who aren't involve in this kind of life. I was shot at by stray bullets and not in the bad part of Richmond. I don't know why this person aimed the gun at me with his laser and shot 4-5 bullets past my head. These thugs are sick and they are ruining peoples lives. I'm not a criminal but a mother who has lived a proper life and haven't hurt anybody yet this thug decided to shoot at me. It has ruin my life with anxiety.
The best part about all this I'm learning to shoot a gun myself and I'm getting good at it. One day people will be able to shoot back at these thugs who decide to come in neighborhoods and practice shooting their guns at innocent people.
You think it is all about money. I'm not rich because if I was I wouldn't live in Richmond. But I do work hard like most of the people in Richmond. The problem with these shooting thugs is they need to get off their couch and get a job like the rest of us in this world. These thugs are a minority in Richmond and I'm sick of hearing this poor me story and how I can't get a job.
There are so many non-profit, tax funded programs in Richmond that can help these thugs get jobs but they have chosen to live this kind of life. Now instead of dying they are surviving with their injuries and they will learn what it means to live a life in a wheelchair. They will know what poor me is all about.
I'm just a law abiding citizen, a poor person, working hard at a job, and trying to survive because I happen to live in Richmond. The problem with North Richmond, Iron Triangle and South Richmond is that the people who live there don't want to come forward to turn these thugs in so the result is that their love ones die and they know who are doing it but they don't want to come forward. Sorry I don't feel sorry for them.
The person who shot at me. Out of revenge my neighbors came together and went after the drug dealers in our area and a lot of them were arrested by our great police department because my neighborhood said not in our neighborhood. We worked with West Net and they now don't come to our block to do their crimes because they know they will be caught and arrested.
It is not away of life. These neighborhood choose to live that life and as a result there will be innocent lives lost but worse then that these shooting victims are living and they are going to live in pain for the rest of their lives. Which is sad.
I got shot in front of my house and I still live hear because of my neighbors because we will not tolerate crime in our area.
