Yet another Gang Banger, Drug Dealing shooting. According to the FBI 85% of all homicides are related to these hideous activities.
Law abiding citizens ARE NOT TO BLAME, Obama! Do something constructive!

Set up cameras. Get video of cars driving in/out and through EPA. Guaranteed, you'd catch somebody or someone. Get serious about solving the problem.

Come on people another shooting involving little kids. Honestly its just really sad how this violence continues. It breaks my heart to read another story like this one.

If anyone from EPA is reading my comment we need to stop this non sense. Together we can make a difference. Organizing neighbor watch groups. You watch my back I watch yours. We have this going on on our street and it works. It doesnt cost money just time to care about your neighbor and the activity going on. It only takes a minute to recognize a suspicious vehicle or person on your street. We have to take action in our hands. And of course we need the support from our police dept. to reinforce the action needed.

In my opinion replacing the whole force would bring change. Our current officers dont show that they care or sympathize with anything when you call for help... so like any other job they can be replaced in a heart beat along with the Chief.

Dear Mayor hear our demands!! We need a huge change in our police dept since yesterday!! If not the violence will continue. Bring in mindsets that are new & fresh...police officers who dont bully our residents.

Stand up and let your voice be heard! Join me in taking time to write to our mayor demanding change NOW before your child and/or loved one story is posted here as a victim of yet another shooting.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
