    Sounds like they were not part of the procession. Hopefully someone got the plate #’s and scripts of cars to turn them in. Also video cameras are all over and pick up a LOT. You think this is tv stuff nowdays. Too bad tv cops weren’t at funeral expecting something and taking them don b4 shots @ funeral occurred.

    typical Black behavior? are you sure? I think you forgot about the dick head who sat in on a black church service and shot, not outside, but the inside of the church. Only two were wounded in this incident, i believe he killed quite a few people. Let’s not forgot the psycho in Colorado who shot up the movie theater. We can’t forget the historical columbine shooting. Lets not talk about “typical black” behavior. Idiot
