Agree with most of what txtea said except I wouldn't compare someone with bad credit or a foreclosures to someone who is a murderer.

Oh I wasn't by any means. Not sure where you get that from. Just saying a lot of people got in over their head.

and there was that armed robbery at the Freddy's on Potranco not too long ago. This is most likely gang related, AGAIN, seeing as to how nobody is talking. I'm sure he was also a good boy that is just having some problems, but he's working on them.
All these irresponsible parents should feel so proud of the little hood rats they raised..

txtea...my misunderstanding then. I get what you are saying

RD..I had not heard of the armed robbery at Freddy's. Pretty scary. Especially since it's probably kids working behind the counter.

Really? If you consider that the "dangerous side of town", you need to do better research. As with ANY area, there are better and worse - but that's a mighty broad brush you paint with.

Then again, you probably knew that already, and seems to me like you're trying to justify paying the high price of your residence of choice.

We moved from Heritage NW 15 years ago. I wouldn't say that the area was going "ghetto", but I will say that more and more of the homes around there were becoming rentals. Home values had become stagnant, and you could literally see the neighborhood in a state of general decline. Lawns weren't kept up, fences rotting, homes in dire need of painting, etc... We got out.

I will say the last time we saw that neighborhood, it had improved a little. It's still not at the level we had hoped to see back in the '80's when we originally bought our home there.

I will also say that crime is everywhere. A crime such as this can happen anywhere nowadays, and does. No area is immune. To think that you can live in ANY zipcode of this city (or any other city) and not have this happen close by is fooling yourself.
