    This is not to be tolerated.

    Punks entertaining themselves with random drive-by shootings are insane.

    I hope they are caught soon and imprisoned with the maximum sentence.

    Anyone who tries this in our neighborhood better use larger bore weaponry.

    Because what comes back at them won’t be “small” – and it won’t miss its target.

    We protect our own. This insanity will be stopped.

      “Random” drive-bys? Hmmm, seems every drive-by we’ve seen so far, the “victim” has a record to match the shooters, and usually has nuttin to say to the cops about it. I’ll bet this one plays out the same. Random, not so much.
