Two More Stabbings Just Around The Corner

We had a police presence in the area yesterday. Well actually we had two police scenes yesterday. On one street there were about four police cars, one ambulance and a fire truck. One neighbour said he thought he saw a guy with what looked like stab wounds on his body, with no shirt on. Great! That's what we need, more stabbings.
Then just around the corner from that scene a couple of police cars and an ambulance pulled up. Apparently another person had cuts or stab wounds.
The police supervisor vehicle pulled up to one scene, then left and went to the other.
Wasn't it just a few days ago when a kid was stabbed down the street. Yes, it was.
Everyone we talk to is just so sick of this. They are sick of the crime, sick of the stabbings, sick of the sirens, and sick of the police presence.
We don't live in the States, where violence is the norm. We don't live in South Central L.A. or Detroit. We live in Canada, and we live in Winnipeg. And we are just so sick of living like this. Somebody please, please fix this. I don't even want to think about what may happen if it gets worse than it is now. Somebody has to do something, now.
