Another Neighborhood in Pain

Another life is lost to senseless violence.

Last night, the Quick Safe Food Mart near Roseland (map) was robbed and the store clerk was killed. Now, the neighborhood surrounding Roseland Homes was robbed of their only grocery store.

Just hearing people talk at the gas station a few blocks away let me know that Quick Safe Food Mart is a place where they worked with the community and treated people well. Now, all of that is lost.

This happens in neighborhoods all over Dallas. When money is tight, sometimes residents depend on a little help from their neighborhood store to get the items they need. People in the neighborhood can get store credit. Then a murder occurs and the store closes. What will those residents do now? Everyone can’t go to Wal-Mart across 75 to shop.

The clerk (“Shorty”) leaves behind a pregnant wife, all because of a couple of thugs that don’t value life. What kind of world do we live in?
