Friday question of the day

I read in the Post that crime traditionally spikes in July. Having lived here for a number of years, I do hear many more gunshots in July but I don’t necessarily think it impacts regular folk or let’s say “civilians”. But do get ready for a sweet fourth of July fireworks display. And I’m not talking down by the monument, I’m talking about on nearly every street corner in Petworth. It is going to be electric. But my Friday question of the week is: Are you concerned about rising crime rates in July? As a result will you be changing your normal routines at all i.e. walking around the neighborhood, walking back from the metro at night etc.? Or is it business as usual, crime rates be damned?
