  1. Must be pretty darn traumatic to have thugs pull a hand gun on you.. I would probably say that's the last straw and if I didn't move, I would certainly not be out at night walking. I quit walking at night after 10PM yrs ago, before I even started to read this blog because of the stories I'd hear at Joes on Broadway of the increasing crime.
