I’m from Houston, and have witnessed some of those murders in bars and nightclubs, it used to be a very wild town.
And still is in certain quarters although the murder numbers are down significantly from those other high numbers of years gone by. I was born and raised in that town and have some fond memories of that town. I no longer recognize it nor no longer call it home. Got out about 10 years ago and dread having to drive into that growing cess pool to go see my docs at the Houston VA hospital on occasion.
