i have been living in a low income neighborhood for a while and have never had any problems.
what i see is this
if you go into any neighborhood and show fear of not belonging you draw attention to yourself.
low income areas all over the country has big componies working all though the day and nothing happens.just have respect for where you are and if you are talking to someone talk to them like you would talk to anyone else.its simple
"do on to others as you want done on to you"
as for the guy who got shot i dought he was just standing there and a group of gangsters dicided they wanted to kill someone.and he was the only one around.
