What the heck is going on in this world?

I lived in a small city POP of 12k or so. When I moved here 2 years ago it was very quiet, no one killed anyone blah blah. We had our annual fair with a midway, petting zoo etc. The first night they arrested 3 youths for selling dope to a 10 year old. They also filled the jail with morons beating the hell out of each other just down from where I live.

The next night some vandals caused thousands worth of damage to the midway rides.

I almost went and watched the fireworks with the wife and kids on Saturday night but something told me to stay home.

Sunday my Bud comes over and tells me someone got murdered at the fireworks thing last night. HUH? The accused grabbed a guy and pulled him away from the crowd. Then they filled his mouth with shale so he could not scream and procceded to stab him and slit his throat.

When I went to school the most you would see was a 5 minute fight resulting in a bloody nose ( I don't condone it but.. ) Now everyone has to shoot or stab the other person. WTH is going on.

I'm glad I didn't go there with the native girl who wanted me to go.

The world is very different now... and in wetaskiwin there is alot of racial battles that go on.

The native girl i know says she can't walk down the street there at night without getting harassed because she is native... Most of it is young guys like me who do it though

Oh yeah and it goes both ways... sometimes the natives start in on the whites

It is crazy here Stoned. In the last few months the teens are getting really ****y with the attitude of I am under 18 you can't touch me. I had an interesting discussion with a few of the local youths yesterday.

Basically I "mentioned' that if I ever caught someone messing with my home, cars or family I would beat the crap out of them. The teens mentioned that I would then be the one in trouble. Good point I said. I'll just get one of my rifles and then the person can't tell anyone. The look on their faces was priceless. I know I would not shoot anyone but they don't know that. I want to be known as the crazy guy on the corner that everyone stays away from.

I also repair game consoles so many of the teens know who I am. Most of them are good kids it is just the few that ruin it for everyone.

The wife and I are buying an acreage soon so I may not have to put up with the locals much longer.

Ahhhh but I hope the acreage is not on the south side.. The few natives who do raise trouble tend to do it along the stretch of road going from ponoka to wetaskiwin

Nope. We are looking east of Camrose or maybe near Ferintosh or Bashaw.

Land is pretty cheap if you get one without a home on it. I found one near Sherwood Park w/80+ acres, serviced, no building for 90K. Then the real ( big ) shop can be built.

The world is not the same now a days. I remeber when the students at school were spanked by teachers. Now you can't even touch them. Time has changed. But I also belive that the media plays a big role. People do not know what happend in a small town or anywhere with not reading it or watching it on TV.

Well, my little town of 14,000 is usually pretty safe...
A few years ago we had two homeless guys...
Turns out the one guy killed the other guy....
Small town+14,000 people+2 bums...
Did that just add up to turf war????
What the heck guys...there's two of you...can't you just share..??
I think it's safe again...we have 3 bums now.....
One is actually well taken care of around town...and well liked...
