Shame. 10:00 p.m. isn't that terribly late, but I undertstand the sentiments; crime occurs in broad daylight these days so what's the difference? As far as 'recall, replace' (Lynn K Allen) didn't we just finish voting this so-called mayor in? had your with it.

Close to half of thr news in the New Mexican involves some one shooting ot getting shot. If The New Mexican was a sensational tabloid, ok. But it is our decent home town paper.

We have slipped a long way down.

The current officials aren't effective. Let's try better ones, especially the mayor who should be in charge but isn't. Recall, replace.

More than likely a drug deal or gang activity.

A year or so ago, I was walking downtown one night heading to a movie at violet crown with friends and a car passing us took a shot at us with a pellet gun. The projectile hit a metal pole next to us as the car sped off. I called the police but couldn’t give much of a description as it happened so fast. Maybe they’ve graduated to real guns.

Many shootings at this location!

Random shooting or is there more to this than meets the eye? Remind me not to be out near a row of fast food joints at o-dark thirty.

I can't think of any decent reason to be out and about after 10pm.

The only people I hung out with in the last quarter century out after ten were Los Alamos County Councilors, as they could never stop listening to themselves talk. I once had to sit through the incessant drone till past midnight in order to deliver my advisory committee's report. Swore I would never run for office up there as I had to get up early the next morning to work in a nuclear facility. Doing that on no sleep is doubleplusungood.

I can think of a lot of good reasons depending on where you live, but since Santa Fe has no nightlife, you're right.

Emily Koyama

Yes, lack of things to do here is part of it, but nevertheless, until the crime situation here improves, staying out late is risky.

Khal Spencer

True, but I'm now in the Age of Geritol rather than the Age of Aquarius. Ten is about my bedtime, which seems to be a safer place.

Nowadays, the pretty lady you meed on Snapchat is more likely part of a scam about to get you robbed, carjacked, or killed (yesterday's Albuquerque Journal story). Its a weird world.

How old are you? 90? LOL

They don't have names, they are over 18 so no reason to hold back.
