        David you change screen names more than most people change undergarments. Either you have a severe personality disorder or you are just that lame of a person. I suspect the latter.

    That’s weird how you say this happened down at foodlion. My husband is a tow truck driver and was dispatched to pick up the car that a victim was shot in at the foodlion near chippingham on Jefferson Davis at the same time. Are there two different shootings?

    latosha,manalisis,whatever.What is clear is black criminals are destroying their own race and making it easy for people like her to justify this behavior.Where is the outrage from the naacp,eric holder or obama on this.Do they think the excuses will continue to work,nope it wont,neither will half of you being PC about the issue.When its your wife shot,or your child punched in some game then it will all become clear.Now go ahead and justify some,maybe with a whites commit just as much crime comment?
