What is wrong with these cowardly savages lately? A 20 yr old shooting a CHILD?? If he shoots a child he deserves 20 yrs in prison because if he can shoot a kid, he’ll shoot anyone. Buncha cowards in this generation. They never would’ve survived the 70-80’s.

Are you assuming this “CHILD??” is an angel? This story is only 5 sentences long. Let’s wait until Christian Murray actually reports on some of the details.

This park is always inhabited by druggies, urinating alcoholics, dirt bikers and other unsavory elements. And the 115 does nothing.


That park has been a cesspool of filth for decades. Needs a good cleaning.. wheres Bernard Goetz ?
