    Hmmm, a small group of people were fighting with a 17 year old girl and they couldn’t win so they shot her??? Just love to observe how the animal mind works….

    Eh, this was just a nice neighborhood back in the days like 45 years ago. Now friend and I used to run newspapers in that area, we had some nice radio flyers to carry them to the junk man for a few pennies. Then we would go to the corner store and pickup 2 bags of Geiser’s potato chips with our 20 cents. Now all they do there is kill each other like rabid animals.

      I wish you and your friend a happy newspaper collection on this day. May you eat many chips. I will leave now.

      What’s going on with all these killings. This is not allowed. We should bring the black families together and take care of the problem. Don’t forget the cannoli, eh…
