Shootings Near You

Shootings Near Me, from Slate

Slate published, “How Many People Have Been Shot in Your Neighborhood This Year?” today. You can enter your location and pull up your own local data.

I live inside the Dallas city limits, so… not bad for a big ol’ city, I guess. (And the one death has not been confirmed to have actually happened in my neighborhood, but seems to be a body dump… which is still awful, but I guess I’m glad to know about it?)

Let’s aim for zero next year, neighbors. Shooting people is awful, even if they’re stealing your stuff. (Because hey! Did you know that’s not a crime that carries the death penalty and you can get a new TV?)

  1. There were 11 within a 1 mile radius and 6 fatal shootings! Eeek! And that’s just a 1 mile radius! My town is having some serious gang retaliation issues this year.
