    "Low income housing with its share of stories hitting the headlines over the yrs. Not all areas of Durham are bad/shady but this is one on the list..."

    Yeah, this location is definitely shady and makes it easy to predict that this is an overdose or homicide. However, I would emphasize the CONDITIONS of McDougald Terrace (poverty, poverty, and more poverty) rather than the character of McDougald Terrace. The overwhelming majority of residents there are noble, law-abiding, hard-working people who face huge disadvantages in life for a variety of reasons, and while we can't deny the rep of where they live, we should avoid judging the people there harshly or unfairly.
