You are right it could have happened anywhere but it did not it happened here.I have been here 8 months and I did not know about all crime in this apt community.There have been numerous cars that have been broken into and several apartments have been broken into also and not to mention all the very loud verbal arguments that I hear at least 1 a week so no I am not suprised about someone being shot to death.I cant wait to leave here.We pay a lot of money to stay here to have some peace and there is none not at Deerwood apts.

Yes we are edging closer to a police state but not for all those incidents listed above. Justified shootings to protect life and property will be a necessity until all citizens stop stealing and harming others. Not every citizen has the ability to protect them self. For that reason we need a paid force that can protect and serve. The police are a justifiable result of our inability to live with mutual respect for others. Until that changes we can't drastically alter that part of our system. Now, how they ended up with the power to write me a ticket for not wearing my seatbelt is beyond me.

As for your other points:
