    When my girlfriend and I moved to Indy at the end of last summer, she had come out a couple days before me to find a place to live that had no waiting list and was affordable. (we had found jobs here at the 11th hour) She brought a minimal amount of stuff to live and had stayed with relatives for those few days; I followed shortly thereafter with the U-Haul.

    When I arrived at the apartment complex, I noticed that there was a BAD element inhabiting the rear side of the place (gang activity, etc). Although it was only meant to be temporary at best, I said to my buddy who was helping me "there is NO way in Hell I'm staying here a minute longer than I have to". Given, she only had about 3 days to find a place, but I think she jumped a little too quick for the first place available.

    After moving all the stuff into the apartment, I told her that we aren't even going to set up anything but 2 chairs, the tv, and the computer. I began the search for a permanent place to live the following day. Within 3 weeks, we were outta there for good.

    This is what JUST happened at that very complex. I'm quite pleased with the place we settled into. And now I have one MORE reason to be thankful we found it.


    Freaky, huh?

    That's good that you trusted your instincts and moved out of that place Abe. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    The States is too violent, too many people with guns IMO.

    It's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live it. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I tend to agree with ya about the the states being way too violent at times. Way too many chicken shit criminals wondering around instead of being either dead, or in the hole. I guess we should shoot what we can, and deal with the rest later. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    But good to see ABE use the best thing a person has going for them, and that's a basic gut feeling about a person or situation. Out.

    What disturbs me most about this is that the mother of an NBA player lived there. Surely he could have seen to it to put her up somewhere a little safer. He could certainly afford to.

    As for the gun issue, I've GOT one, but that place looked a little too much like the kind of place where I might have to use it. That wasn't cool.

    Funny thing, when I told my girlfriend that we wouldn't be staying there any longer than needed, she started crying like Laura on the Dick Van Dyke Show. She thought I was MAD at her! It took me hours just to get it through her skull that I was not mad, but that we needed to get out and fast. She was worried about me being upset, while I was worried about premature, violent death. Go figure!

    Abe, I'm glad you were able to move, and I'm equally disturbed that an NBA star's mother was having to live in a place like that. I'm sure he is a fine son, thought. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    That's pretty scary, Abe. Glad you got out of there before something happened.

    Abe, I'm glad that you trusted your instincts and hi-tailed it out of there. Most people fail to do that...and that's usually when you find trouble.

    Glad you and your lady got out and live in a much safer neighborhood...but, still, no matter where you live keep you head up and your eyes open. You can get assaulted in any neighborhood, and someone who appears aware and alert, is rarely as much of a target as someone who doesn't pay attention.

    BTW, I had the same thought when I read the article. Why was that poor woman still living there when she's got a son in the NBA?

    Still, my heart goes out to the poor innocent people who live in that awful area, and there is no easy way out for them. [img]smilies/cry.gif[/img]

    This bugs me, too...Van Exel is no slouch on court and makes cash...I guess we shouldn't assume, but if I strike it rich, at the very least I'll pay off my parents mortgage...strange...His mom may have had the chance to move and for whatever reason decided against it...
