Im AliveMy place of work was robbed at gun point by gang members. They robbed employees, customer, and me. They stuck the gun in my mouth when I open up the safe. They told me if I called the cops they would come back and kill me. Of course I called the cops. They get caught but two weeks later other members of the gang come back to the store and shot me 9 times within 10 ft with 45 caliber. I come out with 12 bullet holes though out my body because they went in & out of my body. I end up in the hospital over a month. The day I get out of the hospital I have to live at my mother's house till I finished rehab for my injuries. That night someone calls my house and says that they are going to come to my mothers house and finish me & family off. So my mother and I move out of the house that night into a gated apartment. Month later I go to my former work place to show them im ok and return the keys and get my personal stuff, the store catchings on fire that night. The gang members involved with the shooting get caught later on. I end up the only one that would testify about the robbery because everyone else was to scared. I was terrified, they had other gang members and family there which all stared me down. I had a huge panic attack now all them know what I look like. That night we get another threat on the phone. We have to keep this phone # because its my mothers work #. Four gang members get a good long sentence but when the judge told them all the threats to my family will end today, all them rolled their eyes & murmured laughs. My mother moved back to the house after 9 months, she devoted catholic and says if it time God will be there. I had to move back within 14 months because I spent so much on this very secured apartment and i'm broke. So now I live in my house which the gang members know.There is other little things that happened that during this time that would mess up most people. That's just more crap that I have to deal with.
