    "Police said they don't have a description of the suspect, but he has shoulder-length dreadlocks and was wearing baggy blue jeans and a hoodie with blue and white stripes on the sleeves" Kind of tells an everyday story in America.

    It was not at a seedy smoke shop. It was in the parking lot where 2 white guys were waiting on the ones uncle to get off work when a black known drug addict asked for money when the two guys said they had none the black guy in a hoodie and known drug addict shot the one point blank in the stomach then ran. This black guy in a hoodie had been casing problems earlier that day at the corner store. The young white kid that was shot is in icu strugling with his family in crisis of what to do for him. Now anyone care to comment on the truth.

    I suggest to some of you to be kind with your words. The victim is a close friend of my families and you don't know the whole story so maybe you should hold off on your comments.

    Another seedy smoke shop incident. It's amazing how people are suddenly getting shot just for talking with another person.

    I have a great idea! Let's make it illegal for criminals to have guns!

    Oh! Wait! We already did that!!!

    But no description of him just the clothes and sex. I got a feeling they even know whether he had dark or light skin

    ban guns that will help. then everybody with a gun would be a criminal and you could shoot them. Oh; we dont have a gun because nobody can have one. THE GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE ,PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. If you are not a convicted felon(convicted Not accused)then you can by the constitution, have, keep, and bear arms. This is a right to all citizens and should not be taken away under no circumstance, or infringed upon. Either like it or go where the law dictates everything you do and live in socialism.

    It is already illegal for criminals to carry a gun. As a matter of fact, it is illegal to be a criminal. So how is another law going to change anything?
