*BAM BAM BAM BAM ....... BAM*
For the first time since Ive been in LA, I heard gunshots this morning, the characteristic loud-hammer-on-plywood sound of 9mm gunfire. The first 4 in quick succession, and then another.
There were no sirens afterward, and no mention of it on the news, so who knows what happened.
Living in San Francisco and other cities, I heard far more gunfire than I have here in Los Angeles in the few months Ive been here. Of course, Im not in the right part of LA, but even so - it seems the gunplay I am so used to in other cities doesnt occur as often as potrayed in the media.
Based on what Ive seen so far, either theyve got a decent handle on crime or things may be overblown.
Heh, watch some idjit prove me wrong.
