  1. Those poor babies and their families deserve justice and change. I can't begin to imagine living somewhere where my child could be shot and killed for simply being at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

  2. When the residents decide to take back their neighborhoods they will get justice!! How can the cops do their job with NO cooperation? Figure it out …. it really isn't that hard!

  3. It's just like in chicago. So sad. But why is it black on black violence. It has nothing to do with the government its they themselves that have to take responsibility for their own neighborhoods.

  4. NOTES: Everyday, 29 people are being killed by Drunk Drivers all over America, where is the petition demanding Congress to limit the "Sales of Alcohol" to the public? 10,000+ people are killed annually by Drunk Drivers, not mass shootings. Get Real.

  5. How do "authorities" stop the bloodshed ?
    It's your city– you stop it.
    Too "afraid" to snitch ? Tough.
    The "authorities" can't bust people they can't find or don't know about.
    It's either that or form a posse.
    Protect yourselves and your families !
