So I'm sur eyiu fellow Seattle people heard today we had two shootings, one that left two people dead on the scene with three other in critical condition and might not make it. This happened just an hour or so ago by my school. Heard the shots, then had so many cops and aid cars fly by me. Really scary and sad. The other shooting was a car jacking and they just found the car in my home neighborhood (west Seattle area) where there a couple months ago a lady was killed blocks away from my house and killer not found still.....a couple weeks after that we get a rapiest going around raping young girls at gun point in my neighborhood as well.
Just this last weekend we had folk life festival and the day before I was there to hangout there was a shooting.....there was another shooting involving a cops kids a couple months ago as well in Seattle....I could go on
As a young 20 year old girl who walks to and from school from work and buses from home this si very nerv wracking I get out if classes at 830 at night and have to walk 30 minutes yo my bus, I hate transferring buses....
I was just getting over the scary gun incident that happened on halloween this last fall....I was walking to the bus and there was a huge fight happening, my phone wasn't working at time and I couldn't call 911...seemed like the fight was broken up when they started walking away from each other and all of us people who where right there trying to break it up and cross the street to get away from it and they pulled guns on each other there was about 12 or more of us in between both guns one guy in the cross walk the other on the street...cops arrived and one guy ran dropping his gun other was arrested and we all had to give statements of what we saw happen and what the other guy looked like...I had been trying to walk past ts guy in the cross walk cause my mom was going to pick me up on the other side....me and two other girls where within 3 feet if the guy when they pulled their guns and the cops showed up
I'm so over this and don't feel safe anymore!
Now my boyfriend is taking me to and from classes and home when I get bout at night just to be on on safe side.
I don't want to get shot
