    There are worst neighborhoods and HP is not even close. Do your homework before you open your mouth like I said guns are everywhere crime is everywhere read the newspaper or watch it on TV. Our HP festival has always been a family oriented event obviously you have never traveled to Puerto Rico you should you might educate yourself about our culture and how and who we our. Have a great day and watch out for any fireworks we don't want you to get confused.

Did you read "ALL AROUND THE FEST" that I placed in capitals for you to understand? Enough with AT THE FEST that is surrounded by fencing, armed police officers and subject to search to enter. Everyone here understands that once your in THE PR FEST, you are safe but within four blocks of the fest, you are four hundred percent more likely of getting shot than this last weekend without THE PR FEST!!!!

    For too long now, I have heard those of Puerto Rican heritage get by in gang infested locations by practicing appeasement. Don't say anything bad about the gangs, and the gangs with leave them alone. We continue, in this day and age, with too many with gang affiliations calling folks who call out the gangs "race traitors" ; and too many, who want nothing to do with the gangs, still very hesitant to speak up against gang activity & violence. A change in that dynamic would/will be huge for the community.
