So that's three shootings in less than 48 hours around Loma Alta Park. This is only a couple block from my home, and I walk there frequently. Even though they were all unrelated, they reflect a rather unsavory (and unsettling) milieu.

We need to have continuous police presence. The moment they see no one watching, things like this happen.

and continuous community presence. Police can't be everywhere at once... so the good citizens of the neighborhood should be out and about so the hooligans know folks are watching.
