    does it really matter, commish will let them out within an hour and the judge will most likely dismiss the case or pbj

    Sounds like a wonderful neighborhood. Nothing will ever change unless the law-abiding members of the community get together and decide enough is enough. Start turning in the dealers, thieves, and people with illegal guns. Once they are cleared out the neighborhood will be a much better and safer place to live.

      watch youtube videos “stop a douchebag”. it starts small

      What if nobody there is law-abiding? I tend to believe that it isnt just the code of the street to not be snitchin, but also there is a degree of “I dont want to talk to the cops, cuz I dont want them to notice my illegal activities”.

      Remember when Marrion Berry was elected, then re-elected in DC? He was a liar, thief, woman abuser, anti-semite, a cheat, druggie, and generally a horrible human being once you looked past his smile and the cult of personality that he possessed. When it came out that he was a drug addled dope fiend who spent money on hookers the local TV stations interviewed people in DC concerning the Mayor. One woman went on camera and stated “Oh, we love him, he one of us!”.

      Well, that same mentality exists in places where GARBAGE culture lives. Thievery, violence, lack of education, and general criminality is accepted as daily life because those committing the acts of violence, are, in the words of the community; “One of us”. Until the people decide to act right and take responsibility for the mess that they’ve made of their surroundings it will perpetuate.

    In a related story, citizens refuse to cooperate with police. And they wonder why their area is a dump!

      we don’t snitch around here

        And that’s why you live in a dump.

      • Joe on June 19, 2019 at 8:58 am

        Bull. Nearly ALL of them snitch. I have extended family that are LEO. People blame the DA, SA, or Judge and it’s called for at times, but quite often the revolving door of justice is a case of someone copping a plea deal and dropping a dime on their “homeboys”. Do people honestly wonder why someone with a drug and weapons charge is back on the streets in 6 months while their associates get locked up for 4 years? There’s no code of honor when you’re facing real time.

      • Joe on June 19, 2019 at 2:42 pm

        The locals snitch all of the time. Ask the LEO’s around here. There’s a reason people catch drug and weapons charges and are back on the street in 6 months while their homeboys get hemmed up and serve 4-6 years. It’s not always a case of the DA, SA, or Judge being lenient. It’s often a case of a snitch copping a plea and giving up their homeys. How do you think bigger cases are made and bigger fish are caught. LMAO at people not snitching around here. Tell me another story.

        Naw…you ‘catch’ stray bullets instead. Can’t fix stupid

      2nd Amendment allows them the right to posses arms

      • Anonymous on June 19, 2019 at 5:37 am

        The guys that were indiscriminately firing off rounds? Yeah, once they did that the 2nd Amendment no longer applies.

      • Posses? on June 19, 2019 at 7:47 am

        Are you talking about the arms of more than one posse? As in, multiple posse’s arms?

      • Joe on June 19, 2019 at 9:00 am

        If by them you mean law abiding citizens then yes, you are correct. If you mean convicted criminals in the commission of a crime, then no, you are wrong.

      • Can't fix stupid on June 19, 2019 at 11:50 am

        …You catch stray bullets instead, am I right? Lol!

      • You Know I'm Right on June 19, 2019 at 11:52 am

        …Not if they are under 21 or a convicted felon. One of those two cover most of the perps.

    Something always seems to be in common factor with these type incidents, I just can’t quite put my finger on it.

    • Derrick Butler on June 19, 2019 at 7:30 am

      I would say it’s that coppertone tan and a propensity for violence.

      Yes, the common factor is a low income neighborhood.

    Bet you wrong dumbass they allow us to have guns for fools like this that I put money there’s ain’t legal

  6. Keeping it Real on June 19, 2019 at 7:03 am

    I’ve said it time and time again.

    That whole area needs to be napalmed and razed to the ground.

    The savages have run amok.

    Businesses have fled that area because the savages steal and rob from their own.

    • Wiggy on June 20, 2019 at 6:05 am

      Are you stupid? You do that and the mess will scatter to other parts of the county. It’s contained there so something should be done to keep it there. Maybe a fence, wall or moat.

  7. Bill on June 19, 2019 at 7:30 am

    Not if they are felons. Want to bet they are? Or under 18? And you can be damn sure these guns were not obtained legally. Most likely from one of the 431,232,425 Tackle Box robberies.

    And how many times over the past 5 years have that neighborhood been shot up? Not sure why anyone would want to live there but it’s obviously a bunch of desperate or stupid people who live there. There’s also no doubt that someone knows who did it but their “stop snitching” nonsense keeps the crimes alive and well. I guess the addicts realize that if their dope man gets locked up they wont have anyone else to buy their drugs from or that the dope man will get out of jail seeking revenge.

    Was the firearm legally registered? If a handgun, did the bearer(s) have a hql and carry permit? When known, please report this information.

  10. Brett Steele on June 19, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    The biggest problem colored is the lack of caring. The citizens colored just don’t care. They have really colored never cared. Why should taxpayers non colored care about these animals colored in that area?
