it's amazing that police was not there period to harass but instead they were called because of the people with guns. now someone is shot and we are ready to blame the police instead of the one who started shooting before the police even gotten there. this block party was a bad idea from the start. you know we can't act right in a crowd.


give this officer a raise and promotion. this guy took out 2 criminals without anyone else getting hurt. gotta love it
