Ducks on the Venice Canals, Venice California

Yesterday a person was killed after the Street Festival near the Other Room. Last week a guy was stabbed and ran to the Venice Free Clinic on Rose for help. Gas is being stolen out of tanks, purses from cars (lock the door next time Larna), rapes in limos and drug dealers are taking over the streets in certain sections of the city. How safe is our home?

Lets discuss it in our new forum!
