What's so great about this town again?

Possible gang-related shooting breaks the peace of northwest-side park | kens5.com San Antonio
i would go out on a limb and say this behavior is not the usual crime you see on the NW side (you said west, but in fact it is on the NW side). more, this is behavior you see on other, less desirable sides of town (here is where west side would fit nicely).

also, this fight was in a park.

since parks tend to be spread out and not grouped together, its not fair to say 'oh this happened on so and so side of town', since its a park where people from all over the city gather.

however,

it does show you just how trashy and ghetto certain peoples are and how nothing you do can take the ghetto out of them. learned behaviors from bad parenting...

damnit so much. hood rats just have to invade the north sides since theyve gone and messed up their neighborhoods.

's only a matter of time before they start invading central SA (where i live) and start messing it up.

thankfully, one of the retard taggers in my neighborhood was caught recently by a business owner as he dirtied up his dumpster. kid got smacked around a few times before cops took him away.

now that we know what he looks like and who he hangs around with, we know who to go after should tagging start up again.

its sad that the tagging problem in my neighborhood was mostly the works of 2 people, one of which was arrested and hopefully has stopped, or at least moved on, with his disgusting displays of 'art'.


/man its cold this morning!

It was this thread...
Does anyone actually like living in 78250?

I was trying to be open minded and polite when I said everything west of Bandera is a crap hole. GW said it correctly....It is anything west of I-10 is a crap hole and going down fast.

Sitting here behind a terminal isn't gonna fix it. When you see tagging - paint over it immediately. Report those doing it, clean up the mess and keep it cleaned up and after a while they'll move along. We had some beginnings of this mess back in the mid-90's when we lived in Silver Creek. The back fence backed up against the street, and some thought it was their personal art board. I would pressure wash or overpaint it the minute I saw it. Also monitored to get a feel for when it was happening, and managed to catch one. Let the cops have what was left after he made the mistake of thinking he could "take" a 6' dude that hauled hay routinely.

i live in the WEST ,WEST SIDE. the old school westside. all my co workers have moved to these "safe nice suburban", areas and would shake there heads at me for staying in a "bad part" of the city.

I keep telling them its not like that anymore and its really quiet since the city spread out all the section 8 people. After hearing that report the other day im the one shaking my head at them. SOOOO much money they spent to live in those areas...now what

it is like saying you have the prettiest turd in the toilet.

the west side, as in west of I10 is littered with gangs and wannabes and as a result it is dangerous as hell.
You said you just moved here and you already know this? Hmmmmm

It's everywhere, some places higher scale, others lower scale.. I was at Exxon on the corner of Blanco and West Ave the other day and 4 thumper cars pulled in quickly; they all got out and got into a heavy shoving match. I was really suprised knives or guns didn't come out of their pockets. That area seems to be FULL of "section *" people, with those ghetto apartments in the area...

It is well known that area was the dumping grounds for all the Katrina refugees.
