Two blocks from a police station. Scratch that: police headquarters. Shouldn’t criminals be afraid that the police will get there and find them fast, or do the police just not respond? (Also the drug dealing at the 7-11 next to E-5.)

A dozen spent shells and he wasn't killed or maimed?? Divine Intervention. Cars are replaceable. People aren't.
