    Last week, Channel 5 ran an editorial showing the most dangerous zip codes in OKC and the times of most danger and discussed the reasons for that danger: drive-by shootings, gang shootings, rapes, strong-arm robberies, assault w/deadly and none of the danger areas were associated with bars/clubs, but rather with motels, quick stops, malls, and entertainment venues.

    Other than the drive-bys & gang activity, looks to me like there are at least three good reasons to support OC

    What was surprising was that some of the most dangerous times were in daylight hours.

    My problem is that I travel through most of those areas ... cousin lives on SW 44th, aunt and another friend live in North Moore so we travel across I-240, another couple of friends livesouth of Warr Acres, another friend lives in Edmond, another couple of friends and several cousins live in Del City, and we have business at Shepherd Mall, shop at Quail Springs, and stop at quick stops or restaurants near areas that have recently been in the news for shootings and such. Oh, and I do business 2 blocks north of the County Jail near where the man was shot with a rifle a couple of months ago.

    Now, I have to worry about going through some of those areas during daylight? How about if I could open carry and intimidate the bad guy before he tries to do me harm?

    I am 5'2" and have been accosted in areas that Ihad thought were relatively non-dangerous. Two times, I had no idea that anyone was even there despite my scanning the area with the express purpose of identifying potential problems before I split my attention to unlocking the car door. Thankfully, the vehicles I have now all have keyless entry. That is probably one of the more important developments that helps my safety.

    Just a few thoughts ...

    I just moved from Sooner and SE 81st Terracea couple miles up the roar of ofSooner and SE 44th.I found a home owners association news letter in the bushes of the house we bought. It listed the crimes committed in the housing area. Gave dates, times, charges, first 2 of the addy and street name. I was shocked to know that some house on my street had 3 reports of domestic violence in 1 month. While I do not know what house it is I showed my wife and we are watching things much closer now and put more rules in effect on how our kids play outside.

    I really miss not being able to OC here in OK. Its one thing I miss about not being in VA anymore.

    You're not too far from me at all Bull. I'll have to watch the video later because I can't here at work, but I've looked at News 9's CrimeTracker and seen the stats for this area. If you look at the stats, you can see that a lot of Del City's crime centers around the apartments on 44th near Sunnylane.
