    You notice the steel over all the windows on that mini-mart? What a sad, miserable situation to have to live with.

    Any sufficiently large US city you will see areas like this.

    That is why I never want to ever live in a large city.

    Living on the outskirts of Seattle and commuting into one of the worst parts of the city near the Int. District, was bad enough.

    Living on a mountain with a forest keeps me sane. I can't wait until I can retire, move further out yet, and then rarely have to go into any city whatsoever.

    More likely stupidity

    If Karma was a real thing, there wouldn't be so many bad people out there.

    I don't rely on supernatural beliefs that supposedly punish the bad and reward the good. From what I have observed reality doesn't work that way.

    It's rare that justice is served so quickly. Just goes to show that criminals, by and large, are profoundly stupid.

    To break karma down into punishment and reward is an over simplification at the least.

    But I'm not out convince anyone of anything so it's all good.:)

    I didn't say that was all there was to Karma, but that is the part of Karma that applies here.

    Yeah, it reminded me, for all the world, of every rural shop I've seen in Asia! Screens, window bars and, over there, broken bottles set in concrete on the courtyard walls.
    BTW, thanks for the LOL, hoodlums! I hope that the gang won't retaliate against the store owners because one idiot loser blasted another idiot loser on their property!

    And especially in the Muslim lands where you get your hand chopped off if you steal a piece of gum.. you'd think you could just leave stuff out in the open with that deal going on/being a given.
