people just won't keep trying to shoot it up. I'm certain 11th Ave. is in Martinez.

allhans has a point: Things are getting better???

Maybe in some areas but we still read of shootings at least everyday in the AC. Maybe Roundtree should be looking at shootings rather than the limited problem with pedestrians on Wrightsboro and Washington Roads.

How about you Lt. Blanchard? Want to rethink the use of your personnel resources? Or you Lt. Lampkin? Traffic tickets vs shootings?

There's definitely not a shooting in Augusta everyday... Olde Town is also one of the best neighborhoods in all of the CSRA.
