Default Neighbor Murdered

Quote:
McALLEN — Police found the body of a local woman inside her two-story townhouse in an upscale neighborhood Thursday morning.

Although police would only give few details in the case, they believe the woman, identified as Zetta Jo Fair, 68, of McAllen, did not die of natural causes and are ruling the woman’s death a homicide.

This person lived several houses down from me. To grasp the idea of this:

Quote:
Thursday’s apparent homicide is the city’s second this year…
Not too many people are murdered in my town. As for any other picky details... it's rumored that she was 'smothered' to death (pillow over face, or some other foreign object). It's also rumored to say that several people saw a suspicious guy with long hair and some crappy van.

Of course I'm not saying two deaths is ... "Terrible! So f***ing many!" but I was surprised that this was boasted as an example of a particularly non-violent area.

Eh, I've had my fair share of violent communities. This is no exception, but I was surprised to hear that there was only one other murder.

The vehicle stealing problem is directly proportional to the meth problem. You know that today in Oregon, you have to go to the pharmacy counter and get your ID checked just to buy a package of Sudafed?

Its ridiculous. That is not what the problem was to begin with either.. Its those retards that sold multiple cases of the stuff to one person in a day, and didnt think anything was up. Dood.. If you have a cold that bad, goto the damn doctor. These retards would sell it to them anyways (so the person could cook up their meth).

Because of those people, its a BIG hassle for me, to get some cold medicine.

This is a news piece from my little suburb in 2001:

Quote:
The decayed body of a man was found last month in his apartment in Warminster, Pa. He apparently died three years ago at age 46. What makes this story "Weird" is the number of people who had an opportunity during those three years to discover the body but did not. Among the people who had come to the apartment were the regular postal carrier, a postal supervisor, assorted neighbors, the condominium association's president, village officials (who towed the man's car for expired registration), the police (who received many calls from various people suggesting that something was amiss in the apartment), an agent of the condo-association's management company, and a sheriff's deputy (who delivered a foreclosure notice, which he merely tacked up on the door). All failed to inquire seriously about the whereabouts of the resident or about the odd odor emanating from the apartment.

Hmm! Nationmaster reports that:

North America: United States: Crime
Software piracy losses: $6,496 [1st of 84]

I sense the software companies have overestimated their losses!

When I lived in Ottawa in a suburban area, there was someone murdered less than a block away from my house. I could see the parking lot and white chalk from our back window.

I lived in New Orleans for the majority of my life.

For about three of those years, (mid 90's) it was the murder capital of America, per capita all three years, and by sheer numbers one year (I think it was upwards of 700 murders).

Last week, I watched through a peephole in my door, two of my next door neighbors duking it out. The guy then pulled a knife and stabbed the other guy. I was thinking, whoa ****! Then he wouldn't let them leave. The cops showed up and everything. Appearantly the guy next door to me already did 7.5 years for murder.

We've had like 1 murder here my whole life. But when you live in a tiny little northern Michigan town, there's not exactly a whole lot of action. Hell, I'd rather be where you are and deal with a murder every once in a while. This place sucks. I don't think you'd want to "login" here
