He literally writes in the exact same style and spouts the same bigoted stuff under every username. Not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Your guess is correct.

As I live in one of those "bad areas," I can assure both of you that were you to visit, odds are that nothing unfortunate would happen to you.

Frankly, if I'm to go by TV news reports, the odds are higher that I'd be the victim of a random act of violence were I to hang around certain intersections in Center City when school lets out.

Now, if you control for the number of people out and about at the time the acts of violence occur, the odds of any random individual getting caught in a crossfire might - might - be marginally higher than the odds of a random person getting caught up in a mob of testosterone-fueled teens at 3 p.m., but I actually don't think that's the case.

But I did hear those dozen gunshots Tuesday week ago. And there was the one evening in the spring of the year I moved to my current domicile seven years ago when I went out to walk over to the supermarket for some groceries and decided to turn back when I saw the intersection of Chew and Chelten filled with cop cars. So I'm not going to begrudge others their extra caution.

Someone I know was transferred to that area for a job and it's located near a regional rail stop. I was glad I wasnt sent because I would have had to wake up 5am in the morning since I live in university city
