Teen sentenced to 60 years for fatal stabbing that took place where I went to high school. The photos of scenes at the school creep me out.

The story of the man robbed and stabbed in Midtown, for whom an Exxon employee refused to help and call 911, is still circulating. I lived right at that corner for over 2 years.

Now another incident in Midtown – a robbery and shooting near Piedmont Park at Monroe and Amsterdam. Again, very close to where I lived.


updated: And yet another crime, right on the corner where I lived. WTF?

    Really close to where I STILL live. Guh.

    I live on that corner right now. I didn’t realize this area is so deceptively unsafe.

    Martin – I lived at Greenwood & Monroe for a little over 2 years. I never felt unsafe, walked the dogs alone, walked to the Highlander, etc. Although I know to be cautious whenever and wherever I am, it just never occurred to me that it would be so close to the quiet little Midtown ‘hood we had. Reading this stuff makes me realize that things can happen anywhere in town.

    Stay safe.

    Luckily we live in Georgia and can arm ourselves. And the cost of a concealed carry permit is pretty reasonable.
