"Three words that describe the West are: character, outgoing, and reckless. With outgoing, you do have people that are outgoing and willing to get up and get the money. There are a lot of people with ambition. When I say reckless, it's all about the homicides, man, and they're coming from the West End. You got the young ones out here doing stuff that they're not supposed to be doing. The young ones are trying to be in gangs and not in school like they're supposed to. It's more of the younger ones that need something to do. When I say character, you got a lot of different personalities down here, that make the West unique. You get a lot of characters, you never know what you're going to get.
Why is there so many homeless people, when there's so many abandoned houses? You can turn these houses into something that could feed them, provide good hygiene, or just to keep them up. In the winter time, people don't care about the homeless.
My advice to the world is to not be scared of change because some change can be good. Don't be afraid of change because change can bring about a good outcome." - Shauna, Russell
