    Why weren’t they carrying their guns, this thug should’ve been shot to send a message. This probably wasn’t random either, i bet someone knew them. Why would he be waiting at this specific house. I would have ran him down with my car at the least. Start carrying people or this will turn into milwaukee. Remember you’re legal to shoot them on your property. White, black, brown, purple, pink, it doesn’t matter protect yourself. Shoot them right in the rearceptacle so it’s more painful when they’re getting it in the a** in prison.

      For your imformation the BLM movement is about young innocent black individuals getting gunned down and killed. The reason there is not BLM people commenting is because there is nothing to comment on. This man is guilty of robbery. Period. What else is there to say?
