    Just about that time of the month for the Mayor, with the Chief standing behind him, to look into a camera, again, and look really really angry, and talk really really tough, with Chief Flynn Flam nodding in agreement, about how THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. TOO MANY GUNS…..SCOTT WALKERS FAULT…..STATE LEGISLATURES NOT DOING ENOUGH FOR MY CITY…..NOT ENOUGH MONEY. But this time…this time….standing on a street corner holding a sign is going to do it….turning on a porch light, is going to do it….marching down a street, holding up traffic, is going to do it…..this time all those things will end this nightmare. Yeah…right. Mayor….GET A CLUE.

    Notice how the degenerate thugs who survive the shootings refuse to cooperate with LEO’s conducting the investigation but gladly accept free health care paid for by working class Americans?

    Actually he had recently bought a home there in hopes of fixing it up and helping to improve the neighborhood. He was a new father and a good guy. Don’t assume the worst.
