Too bad he didn't soak them in gasoline. Maybe when the parsites fired up the crack pipe they would have set themselves on fire.

UDF is a great company, but why on EARTH did they build a huge, brand-new spitshined store right in the middle of Franklinton??
It's nothing but trouble for almost everyone involved; the employees, the residents, and people traveling through the neighborhood.

Someone shot and robbed at a gas station? Things are horrible on the west side.

Obviously you haven't thought of how convenient this store is for many people in Franklinton. If you haven't noticed there are dangers everywhere. People are robbed, raped, shot, beaten, and harassed on every side of the city. Many customers consider this store a safe place to buy things they need for their families, like milk, eggs, and bread, or a place where they can bring their children to get an ice cream cone. It is well lit, with friendly people, and a fire station across the street. Many people prefer it to the grungy, dark, and cold atmosphere of the corner stores in the neighborhood. If it makes you feel better go ahead and blame UDF for attracting people its location and please if you are ever driving by and need gas go to the Marathon across the street that crawls with shady characters. Instead of blaming the store, thank the bystanders who rather than running in fear, rushed to his aide. If this had happened on the next street over, no one may have heard him, saw him, or responded with enough time to save his life and there would be no footage of the perpetrators. It is terrible that this has happened and I pray for this man's spirit and body as he recovers.

seems like thats all columbus is known for,Im not saying everyone. but I know a woman from that area that lets her kid run free the ones in gang now (only 18) and the 9 year old is heading that way.maybe if some of the mothers would give up the drugs. and take better control of the kids. maybe just maybe we wouldnt have the problems were having.this woman gets 800 in food stamps and money from the daddys of her 2 youngest (girl,boy), gets hud. plus sells drugs. but she cant keep your gas or electric on ...... thats way to sick if you ask me
