    Harris Teeter is a rough place.

    The corner across from Harris teeter? You mean the $2600 apartments with rooftop pool?

      is your expectation that an expensive apartment buys safety? location can make a difference, but not cost.

      • anon

        My expectation is that money coming in to a neighborhood will bring businesses and tax revenue, thus improving the area and demanding better services from the city, police patrols, etc. Ultimately this curbs blight and pushes out the businesses that thrived and perpetuated this sort of thug behavior – good riddance and godspeed gentrification that ends this sort of thing. Now go ahead and tell me how ignorant this mindset is.

        • anon

          The ignorant part is that you’re just pushing the poverty/social issues to another part of the area, perpetuating and exacerbating the problem by increasing the concentration of poverty even more. So yeah, displacing and further segregating the poor and considering it a victory is pretty ignorant.

    There are still blood stains on the pillars right outside of Petco and CVS where the victims were stumbling away from Ibiza.

      We had a blood trail in front of our house a couple of months ago following a shooting. I was quite happy once it rained.

        Holy crap this comment is depressing. What a great city.

        Not that I would expect a next time, but a little bit of coke (cola) will eat away at those blood stains on concrete. (Side note – don’t think about what drinking it does to your insides)

          Sometimes the fire department will come and power wash blood off a sidewalk. We had that issue when I moved to fairmont street about 8 years ago, stabbing in front of apt building next to my building. I can’t remember if made the request directly to the city or not to do it.
          Also, I thought Ibiza closed months ago due to back taxes or something…or was that Love?

  • Anan

    Shut it down

  • jim

    Obviously the perps were disrespected by someone spilling a drink on them or bumping into them or something. Of course they opened fire.

  • reality

    Ibiza needs to be shut down already…
