    Such a shame — add Swissvale to the “ghetto” list. Another community going down the drain.

    2:15 AM on a WORK NIGHT? Why wasn’t he home in bed to get enough sleep for work?? ANYBODY????

  3. Whiskey says:

    Why are they always out when the rest of the world is home in bed?

  6. Food 4 Thought says:

    Maybe he was off that night. Maybe he was on his way to/ from work. Maybe “they” get their bling and $4,000 rims the way me and my husband got ours- WORK! Believe it or not, WE all don’t sell drugs… “WE’RE” not all uneducated and ignorant… By the way Whiskey- *There are no jobs THERE, {not their}*

    1. johnny69 says:

      Or maybe he was out thugging, robbing, doing bad as the nocturnal dirtballs do. Waiting for that welfare check and driving a caddy with shiny rims. End welfare for criminals, end the free handouts.

    well if pimping is working,

    Food. You must be a democrat

  9. Food 4 Thought says:

    Yup! A proud democrat, with a job and 4,000 rims that were paid for with OUR hard earned cash! Just for the record, I do agree with the statement about Pittsburgh/ Swissvale. It’s absolutely ridiculous that people feel like it’s ok to shoot another person “just because”…

  10. Whiskey says:

    That rule applies to all ghetto areas. Comes from not having a father.

  11. Food 4 Thought says:

    All ghetto areas and all races… 🙂

  12. Curious..... says:

    Lol @ johnny69… I agree with you also- end welfare and handouts for criminals! I’m sure white people will be affected also. You do understand that there are white people who take advantage of the system too? Start cracking down on the perverted “men” who enjoy touching on little boys who can’t defend themselves… That seems to be the “crime of choice” for white men.
    Wjiskey- you seem to have the answer as to why blacks commit the crimes they do, what causes grown white men to touch and rape defenseless children?
