Thank God I moved from there!

Thank God I moved from there!

Just a few days ago somebody had their door kicked in and their house shot up.

It used to be a nice, quiet, decent neighborhood. Sad.

That's near the Driver's

That's near the Driver's License Bureau and what used to be Georgia Regional Mental Hospital, for those not familiar with the area. I think you can glimpse the neighborhood from Bobby Jones Highway.

Too funny (although not for the victim).

You can't make this stuff up.
