After eight homicides in less than a month, Grand Rapids police have stepped up patrols in "hot spot areas," worked to get illegal guns off the street and kept Major Case Team detectives working overtime.

Sorry Bozo, but until you offer something besides your own toxic racist opinion, there is nothing to disprove. However, don't let that stop you from spouting the KKK's talking points......

I suggest you SHUT-UP because you don't know what you are talking about. AND ALL OF YOU NEED TO STOP SAYING THE HURTFUL THINGS THAT YOU ARE SPEWING. RACISM IS THE CRIME AND IT IS A FORM OF TREASON AGAINST the black people who have labored, built and contributed so much to this nation.
Now innocent people continue to pay the price; for example, the elderly couple killed in Kentwood. All are paying for RACISM in this country. RACISM IS THE CRIME. AND IT began with WHITE PEOPLE.
Sorry about that. If someone offered free transportation to where your ancestors had it so good, would you like to go back?
Or don't they have food stamps , welfare, and Obama phones in Africa?

It must really piss you off that those white people who started this country made so simple a mistake as saying ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.
Not at all but even though all are created and start out equal, where they go from there is up to them and guess what...not all end up the same. THAT is what pisses off all you pansy azz liberal tards who think everyone should have everything the same or 'it's not fair'. Life ain't fair, short bus Bob...put on your big boy pull-ups and deal with it.

Do you mean to say, you don't even understand the meaning of...TAKING RESPONSIBILITY? You don't agree that too many, black men don't take resonsibility for their children?.....Maybe we should start there....

You mean a govt that doesn't demand responsibility leads to a falling family value society?

In some utopia, all fathers take care of their children, mothers stay home baking bread, and children get straight A's in schools that teach values based on the bible......

Problem solved!

Now we only need to figure out how to force everyone to live up to that script. Ideas?

You are all going to pay for your inappropriate treatment of other fellow human beings. Got Guns?
Chief Belk is 'very concerned'? When does he get to use a gun? Does he carry one? What about a bullet-proof vest? People are very busy buying guns - but maybe they also need to purchase the bullet-proof vests as well. It is getting scary because of the proliferation of gun purchases. Crazy people in America. You are not even safe in your own home. We must all get on board with the anti-violence crusade that has begun.

You are full of hatred and arrogance and you are a liar on top of it. Move to your favorite utopia..England...high taxes, universal healthcare, and no one carries a gun because they are banned. Perhaps you would love the gas prices there as well?

I'M full of hatred and arrogance? Every one of your posts is nothing but 60 year old flaming flatulence. You're an angry, bitter, old hag. It's obvious you're lost any positive outlook and now it's your job to try and make everyone as miserable as your old, regret-filled, pitiful azz. GR Topix is your platform and we all get to share in your wonderful gift. For this I say: F off. Go find something in your life that's positive before you fall over dead from a stroke or heart attack---god's gift for the miserable.

You keep claiming that brown people have contributed so much to society, yet NONE OF YOU can even name 1 single thing that brown people have INVENTED or CREATED that helped advance our society.
NOT 1 SINGLE THING.
In all fairness, you're way out of line and wildly incorrect here. Black people are responsible for multiple discoveries and investions that make all our lives better in this country. A quick Google search can show you that.

Sad that so many of them have regressed rather than progressed.
