Sadly, and the count continues…60 homicides in Greensboro, NC is a record, but not one we’re proud of. An 18 year old was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting this weekend. Our Greensboro attorney reports that she was known as a happy person who always had a smile on her face.
And now she’s no longer here…and for what? Why is a family going to have one less person to spend the holidays with? Our family law attorney has been advised that losing a loved one is always difficult, but when it’s unnecessary and unexplainable as to why…that’s the toughest part.
Our Greensboro lawyer has handled a lot of the firearm and shooting cases through the years. Aggravated assaults are at the highest level we’ve ever seen them. This shooting happened in the middle of the day at 3 PM. It used to be that shootings and murder occurred at night, but those days appear to be behind us. Now, broad daylight is fair game for a drive-by.
The saddest part is, her goal was to move out of the city. She had enough of the violence, haven’t we all. Our personal injury lawyer has received more calls from shooting victims than at any point in our history. Our criminal lawyer has handled more shooting cases than at any point. What’s the answer. It would appear it’s opportunity, it’s something to keep young kids from having nothing else to do. We need to work together as a community to help our youth. We need to be there for one another.
60 people are no longer here because we haven’t taken the steps necessary. It’s not solely on the shoulders of law enforcement. We must come together or next year it very well could be another record, and every year thereafter. Let’s come together and make a difference. Our lawyers in Greensboro NC are here for you.
