      Now Tony you know that riots don’t happen unless a gentle giant, headed to college after robbing a convenience store and beating a cop gets shot by the white cop. Looting doesn’t happen until they honor the memory of the thug that was shot. Get it right next time.

      Well Tony, it could have been a lovers quarrel, two friends angered over something, or perhaps a drug deal gone bad(bad things tend to happen when you use drug). It is viewed differently if someone is killed b/c they are a certain race, religion, gender, or have a certain s e x u a l orientation that someone doesn’t approve of. If a man is shot because he wronged a friend whom now wants to get revenge versus a man being killed because he is g a y or b l a c k is treated much more differently in our society.

    Now, are police wanted or not? A lot of violence seems to happen in this area. A lot of tax dollars are targeted for law enforcement in this area. Want “rebranding” to community vigilante “Justice”
    of, by, for, through and within community itself? Let’s see a hands up vote from the community.
