I think all these comments show a general fear of downtown. As someone who lives downtown and just blocks from where this happened, I can tell you it's not what people are saying here.
My view of downtown is somewhere with amazing people, friendly neighbors, small independent shops, and a community trying hard to make a difference. Regardless of boundaries and tags, there is crime throughout our city, but when you constantly badmouth one area and stop looking for the good, you will only find the bad.
