Am I wrong or why do 2 people hear guns shots and no-one calls the police??
Most people cannot tell the difference between gunshots and fireworks. When I lived there all year long fireworks were set off and at first I thought that it was gun fire.

i am so saddened by the news of Colin's murder. It sickens me to know that such a wonderful, beautiful, and respectful young man were to die in this manner. As if he were trash and dumped. My sister is his girlfriend of a long time and has to hear of this while she is in the military and cant come home. How could someone be so cowardly and do something like this i dont know. Young men in this day in age instead of doing something positive with their lives would rather kill each other off. It makes you afraid of the world our children are going to be brought up in. Things need to change in this town. Colin was only 19 just becoming a man. I hope they found who did this and instead of locking him up in these hotels of prison they should let all of Colins friends and family torture him to death. Yes its wrong of me to say and it shouldnt be an eye for an eye but wats the consequence jail? parole? I do take some ease that he is now safe and no one can hurt him. May you rest in peace Colin Primer no one deserves this much less you. So much bragging about more police officers what happened Tuesday morning where were they. As for the girl who heard the shots hopefully nothing like that happens in her life and someone chooses not to get involved. Anybody that might know something needs to speak up thats the only way the violence will stop. My prayers go with his family and friends.

I agree with Barr about the "old days".

Too many people want to walk around like they're big sh*ts, but they don't really even know how to fight. I've trained in martial arts for the past 13 years, but guess what? I've just gotten my license to carry a concealed weapon. Most of these "thugs" wouldn't stand a chance in the ring, but the odds are much different when they're walking around with guns. The more people in Allentown I talk to the more I find them carrying weapons. The only difference is that some of us do it legally. I also keep a 12 gauge for home defense. When I hear a loud noise at night the first thing I do is go for the shot gun.

I'm sorry to read about this young man; sounds like he really stepped up to the plate to better his community. I'm sorry to his friends and family. Do not mourn his death; celebrate his life.

How did the United States Govt. ever give citizenship to Puero Rico and not to any other Island in the carribean? All it has done is bring trouble and another flag to all our cities.
Read your history. Puerto Rico became a US territory as a result of the Spanish-American War in 1899. Same with Cuba and the Philippines. After WWI Guam also became a US territory. At the beginning of WWII the US acquired the US Virgin Islands to safeguard the Panama Canal. The citizens of all these territories are US citizens until Cuba and the Philippines became independent countries.
