Uh, sorry to hear that but what you have described is pretty much Bradford and Huddersfield. Drug gang warfare is rife in both cities; in fact in the local paper there was a article that said there were only 4 drive by shootings in Huddersfield last month. Wait? What? There's usually more!?That'd make a decent setpiece for a movie based on the Fallout games
And as for the streets - we still have plenty of truly nasty ones, just not in the way you depicted.
No, those are far worse - in that to an outsider, they look reasonably normal, but an outsider walking there has a very high chance of getting mugged and/or stabbed, even in broad daylight.
One of my family's friends was murdered in cold blood on one of such streets - in the early afternoon, over some silly sum of money (on the order of $10, IIRC). And he was a local, not an outsider!
Even the police want nothing to do with these locations, and will flat out refuse to respond to any calls involving such streets unless a very serious crime is involved (ie. murder).
Uh, that sure sounds like a "fun" place to live...(...) there were only 4 drive by shootings in Huddersfield last month. Wait? What? There's usually more!?
Ah, but you can't hope to deprive the mafia of guns by banning them; not any more than it is possible to inflate a fishing net!Gun laws are very strict here as well but there's plenty of illegal weapons around.
Drain clog remover is usually sodium hydroxide (a strong base), which is even more nasty for organic matter than conc. sulfuric acid ("toilet bowl cleaner").Acid attacks are becoming more common as criminals have easy access to industrial strength drain cleaner which can be bought at most DIY stores.
