Having a job, even showing up for work every day, won't stop gangsters from using guns, knives, fists, brass knuckles, etc., etc. In my opinion, the majority of the current city council is not interested in stopping gang violence or any other type of violence unless it somehow benefits their particular agenda. Just sayin'......:)

Has it occurred to anyone.......( probably not; that, or you're just not saying so)..that whenever a person w/gang affiliations is murdered, or shot or stabbed but lives to tell it, the news of it lights up facebook like a fireworks show on the 4th of July. Marco T.-w/gang affiliations, is murdered in cold blood, and the entire FB world is completely silent. Just thinking out loud.

Are you really that out of touch with this town?

Akizenkia? Apparently you haven't much knowledge about the alternative methods used in the handling of scrap that is deemed not fit for recycling. End of discussion.
