I’m surrounded by crime.

I’m sure these sorts of things happen all the time, I just don’t hear about them. Or perhaps I don’t pay enough attention. But I swear all of a sudden there’s all sorts of news about robberies, assaults, and attempted abductions in my immediate surroundings.

buzz.mn has a rundown of recent activity in the Uptown area. Somebody at 28th and Lake of the Isles Parkway got held up in their own garage. Their own garage! 28th and Isles! I run by there all the time. Just goes to show you that this stuff can happen to anyone, anywhere, no matter how fancy (or not) your house is.

And then this woman narrowly escapes abduction over in LynLake (via).

I don’t generally feel unsafe around here. Even after that guy got shot in the face over behind Calhoun Square. Maybe it’s because I grew up in Detroit and while I didn’t live in the Eminem part of town, I know to be cautious and maybe I’m a little bit jaded. Or maybe I’m just naive.

In any case, be careful out there, kids.

    I’m not saying that anyone deserves to be abducted but the chick was walking home drunk, by herself at 2 in the morning. Bad judgement.
