Atlanta is mad dangerous...


...not poppin'

I mean it kinda just donned on me. I was talkin' to my mom today, and she was talking about moving to Florida. She was saying that one reason for her decision was the crime rate. At first I didn't know what she was talking about, but then I really thought about it. I know that Atlanta is on the Most Dangerous Cities List, but we're used to that. Plus she stays in the suburbs of Clayton County, at one point of time I viewed this as the safest area in America. But I'm older and wiser. If anything, I'd hate to say it...but these rich suburbia children are equipped with heavier artillery than them broke hood cats. I thought back to my high school days, and remembered cats with Tech-9's in the lockers, cuz at MMHS there weren't any metal detectors until tragedy struck. Then today, I see on the news that $8 million dollars worth of cocaine was seized in Clayco. I could see if this was the first time, but it seems like it's gonna be a recurring thing. I kinda want my mom to move away, before things get worse. I love my moms...

The problem with Clay Co. is that Atlanta is tearing down all the in-town projects, and forcing people to move where the rental rates are comparable, and Clay Co. happily obliges despite the increase of crime. Whats so funny is that people talk about East Point, but I feel safer here than in Forest Park.
