Police need to get tough with the gang members. Mayor, aldermen, Police Chief and Sheriff need to implement a plan to rid the area of gangs. Innocent people are afraid to come and go from their homes.

Sit back and let them kill each other= problem solved. Or just shoot them on sight! We need tougher laws and punishment. Forget jail- just kill them.

It was just a bunch of wild feral monkeys throwing feces and having a bongo party. Just because a monkey wears pants, it doesn't make it a human.
