I'm sure it had nothing to do with the unsolved drive by shooting on Union Street or the brothel on Elm or maybe the little kid being abused by his white supremacist stepfather on High Street. NA's border with South Lawrence has nothing do with it.

None of the 'safe' towns abut a city run by Democrats. That is not a coincidence.
