pencil is going to die

U-District shootings

Salutations comrades and welcome to Winter Quarter 2007.

I’m make this simple and succinct.

Since my Freshman year a bunch of people have gotten shot in the University District. This past year especially seems to involve many people with new holes in them. We got sent an email about it. Family members commented on it to me. I saw it in the news portrayed as a huge deal.

Everybody else seems to really think this is a problem…

Do any of us care?

Is violence in the U-District getting worse?

What should be done about it?

And so forth.

I’m just curious what other students who live here think.
