By my count that is at least three fatalities in the four block stretch bordered by 13th and 14th, and I.B. Blvd and Grove Ave. in the last 2 years alone. Tagging is rampant, as is vandalism but do you see any kind of increased law enforcement presence in this area? Hell No! SDPD and the SDCSO both seem to be afraid of these punkasses. But try to swing a dead cat in the vicinity of Palm Ave between 1st and 5th and five-0 will be rolling up four deep in seconds. It seems our law enforcement personnel prefer the safety of the coffee shops and taco stands near the beach as opposed to where the majority of the criminal activity takes place and maybe, just maybe a more prolific presence would deter some of it. I guess they have more pressing public safety issues like Jay-walking or people parked on the wrong side of the street on street sweeper day.

Actually 'Nado had two suicides and two homicides. Close though.
