    Another gun related shooting. Guess some people are still happy that the three suspended officers are still off the job instead of getting these guns off the streets.

    Wow, I can’t believe how racist this city is.

    I am a white female, and I have seen plenty of hoodlum white people, welfare ridden white people, and violent white people too. Stop stereotyping.

      Fixpgh…Are you referring to the description of the shooting suspect.How else would you describe an African American male that would be socially exceptable?The police didn’t just pick this discription out of thin air…

      Really any black-focused or white-focused organizations and such need disbanded. Unfortunately so many people are hateful and racist so the black community feels need for these special things, which I don’t blame them. It’s 2011 and we are still disugsting, vile, hateful, creatures that can’t accept the fact that different people are from different places and “White People” weren’t even on this continent first but yet we try to reign supreme. Messed up.
