There are parts of LA you just don't go. Only insiders know where the worst parts are. If people don't tell you, you just don't know. But you know... it's going to get worse. Because of the times. Well... one sign a person can watch out for is when you see people in groups. Especially at that age to about 18 or 20. You avoid them like the plague. It is very normal to see three kids arrested and handcuffed sitting on a curb being lectured by a policeman. They don't have common sense under normal circumstances. Only want to have fun and excitement. So... if one starts something, the rest get in trouble also.
