    Why not in bed after 11 PM?

    It’s because they HAVE A JOB!

    1. I love this city says:

      If they aren’t in bed after 11 because they have a job then why aren’t they at their jobs?

    Heather …your pathetic

  7. Tameka says:

    Come on Heather Waltenbaugh…
    If its so scary why drive past. Futhermore just because you see young African Americans shopping and working in a area does not mean they are gang members! Did you grow up in the mean streets of LA? Have you ever been to the mean streets of LA???

    1. joey says:

      Thats exactly the problem Tameka, i dont see any young “african” americans shopping or working!!! the problem is i see young “african” americans NOT working!!!

  9. Police Supporter says:

    The police need to get the guns off the streets..oh wait, I forgot they did try to do that but the three officers assigned to get the guns off the street have been off the job for a year now because Mr. Jordan Miles did not know how to respond the the command of “police freeze”. If our Mayor would stand up for our police and stand beside the three wonderful officers then just maybe the gun used in this crime would have been confiscated.

    1. MaryMo says:

      “Police Supporter” is a guy that normally posts as “Daniel.” He’s the only one that has to bring the Jordan Miles case up in every.single.post.

      Get a life!!!

      1. don't hate says:

        He makes valid points though.

      2. Not a fan of the cops says:

        Daniel O’Hara is Daniel, the FOP president.

    The only thing scary in this post is the poor spelling.

    1. I love this city says:

      Thanks for proving Jackie’s point…..

    1. Mr HOP says:

      Was the “biker” one of the “bad” guys?

  12. chance says:

    Bad guys shooting bad guys?

    So wha’s wrong with that? I like the math. So does the rest of law-abiding society!

  13. chance says:

    Before you jump on me. That would be a “T” in what’s. I hate the faint screen and then you see your error!

    Too many corrupted Police officers ! most of them dont really give a damn they work ther job just for $ , and those officers that are hanging at the doors of Clubs / Bars most of them know about drug dealing but they get some precentage 2, plus they always say: we are more into bigger FISHES we dont care too much about small criminals . WELL those big ones are untouchable AND YES THEY CATCH ONE OF THEM LIKE 1 or 2 in like 10years AND LOOK AT FBI some are really good but too many FAT F… who just sit around and eat Donuts and get $ 75.000 a year. also too many undercovers working as mechanics and and things like that who are just a waste of budget. Everyone knows about drugs in Schenley/Frickpark/southisdears ……..so many other places whey dont they put undercover cops there?

    1. I love this city says:

      If you know so much about the corruption going on why don’t you tell someone who can do something about it?

        Buddy once my brother was robbed at Duncan St. Lawrencville he was deliv. pizza I FOUND OUT WHERE THEY LIVE everyting in like 10hours when we told to cops the got so quiet about that, cuz one of those 4 black kids had actually someone working in Law enforcement so basicly they did nothing ! they just said we got them undercontrol we already have the registrated from before for illegal underage gun possesion it happend last year and then was at that time 17-21 also in Greenfield last year at Lydia st. a lady was stopped and her car was hijacked at gun point i saw those 3 guys earlier when i told to police they said we got it under control those kids days later were walking around just like today NOTHING HAPPEND hahah also last year at Hazelwod in Monanghela st. a black guy was killed i am 80% sure that i know who did it but since cops dont care and since i dont care about blacks being killed i never felt like reporting heh

      2. Vladimir says:

      3. I love this city says:

  15. Vladimir says:
