I have read the story, and it didnt state that the two people that were shot were doing wrong. Not saying that it's not possible. But according to the story they were just shot. It could happen to anyone of us. Just being shot for leaving your home. It think that we should wait a day or two for the remainder of the plot before we pass judgment. And yes, we do want our neighborhood back, but it's hard when the only people who get to carry guns are either thugs or pisol permit holders.

Savages. I hope they both die so that they do not commit another shooting. Just think, if every criminal that was injured in a fight, died instead ..
1. No more Emergency Room Crowding.
2. Jails would become less crowded through attrition.
3. Streets would be safer.
4. Less demand on state fund social services.
So thug, if you get in a fight, make sure you make it count, and then commit suicide from guilt. Please hurry, I want my neighborhood back.

Thats right... Maybe they were on there way to the community center or some new rec. center that was built in the city...Oh!.. Thats right it was around midnight! Only the best events happen around midnight on Thurston Ave. I hear that all the best pharmacutical reps hang around Thurston at that time. The thugs that shot them will be out of jail by Monday due to our great judicial system!

In all fairness, we should wait for remainder of the plot first. Then we can go hard on them.

Oh Dewey, when are you going to realize that you can't change the bigoted thinking of "people" like hockey lover, and the ilk?? They are too far gone, too ignorant, uneducated, and hate-filled. I do admire your effort though.

I have come to expect the thinking of some of these posters as their normal way of looking at everything around them. Pre-judging the entire situation before hand. Like I said before, it could have been anyone else walking, riding or driving down the street that was shot. Pity that it had to happen, but of course, it's the "way of the land".

My response is for the suburban resident who says that they should have died, what an idiot to say something like that there is more crimes and drugs in the suburbs than the city so for that person to say something like that check your facts before making a statement like that. 3 old people just got arrested for selling drugs in the suburbs, they just busted a major gambeling ring in the suburbs and all of the drugs that make it to the city comes from the suburbs so check your facts before making a statement like that wishing death on someone not knowing what the situation is!

As for the comment from Canada resident how do you know so much about the pharmacutical hours on Thurston unless you hang around there when you get to Rochester or supply them?

So, to be a realist, you have to use racial slurs, and wish harm to a particular race.....Am I warm?
