    This is not the South Side of the Springs. The south side of the Springs does not start until you get past Fountain BLVD. For people that live up North, don't comment on something you don't see day in and day out. Most of you simply base your opinions on word of mouth or one bad interaction with the idiots that live on the south side. I know of a lot of, for a lack of a better word, bad kids that live up north and in the Cheyenne Mountain area. Not just a little bit, a lot of bad kids. We have our fair share of crime, but there is also crime up north. Not to mention most of your kids are addicted to prescription pills and cocaine. Deny it as much as you want, but the truth hurts sometimes. Maybe if you opened your eyes you would see the issues your own kids have. The south is not as bad as people think it is so stop acting all "High and Mighty" just because you live in Stetson Hills/Briagate/Flying Horse (The north end of town).

    Quite interesting the different takes on what is essentially the same crime. Kid gets stabbed on the southside and it's hang em high! Kid gets stabbed up north....say Palmer Lake and it's "well the child was getting bullied so who can blame him" type comments. So should I assume that Palmer Lake is ghetto as well? Do you people in this town know what a real ghetto is, much less where the word originally came from? Lotta hate in this supposedly tolerant and conservative town.

    Not to be argumentative, Elizabeth, but you live in Cripple Creek NOT Colorado Springs. And for the record I DID live in the "ghetto" years ago and I actually just moved away from University Drive... It isn't all puppy dogs and lollipops there. I made it 3 months there before i just had to get out. That street and area does have elderly, etc. It also has some of the worst landlords and property managers that I have seen in my whole life and the horrible neighbors are just "wonderful". It is a drug and alcohol soaked neighborhood and is completely unsafe. If you lived there for even a couple weeks you would understand and get out as fast as you could!

    has ANYONE at all considered that maybe that area of town is NOT a ghetto? has anyone referring to it as a ghetto actually EVER SEEN a ghetto? just for the record, most people living in that area are elderly, retired and living on fixed incomes.

    Well, isn't THAT the pot calling the tea kettle black... "A large percentage", Mike? What percentage would that be? 72%? 98%? How about this, numbskull... You get all of your facts straight before opening up YOUR big mouth just as you would expect others to do? Funny how you can't do it, but expect others to. Sure... Rick S. could very well be right. KKTV made a mistake somewhere in there. But don't criticise with "facts" that you don't have, Mike. Makes you look just as incompetent.

    I agree, wait a little to get the story straight then report. All media sources in COS are the same way though. A large percentage of the time what they report is wrong but then nothing is done to correct it. Any idea how many lives they have destroyed because of this? Then when they are presented the truth, they don't want to report it.

    Sooooooo..... Was he stabbed or slashed? Big difference you know. By the way KKTV, I would rather have to wait a little on the news and have it right. Quit reporting the minute something happens with all of the wrong details. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
