    This is just another one of the many glorious benefits of vibrant diversity that so enriches our community.

      shut up ugly

    “Shots were exchanged”
    Yet, no one was hurt. Incompetent bad guys.
    They need to be removed from society.

    • Mike M

      Yeah, these are the kind of “bad boys” that try to emulate what they see on TV and can’t hit anything but 5 year-old innocent bystanders. They got lucky this time. Maybe next time they will accidentally kill each other.

      Nothing like passive voice…

  • Bob Serpico

    That whole area is a mess. Why can’t people just act civil? Did you know that the RCC now has a roaming security guard? Some undesirables hang out there to use the free wifi and cause trouble…..be careful.

    • Mike M

      Sssshhhh! Nothing bad ever happens over there. Sssshhh!

      • Thomas Day

        Another lame comment. I think maybe you’re not trying hard enough?

        • The Constitutionalist

          Oh no! Mr. Day, a once proud member of the Mike M fan club has flip flopped back to the Anti Mike M fan club.

          Will he make the switch again? Stay tuned to find out, more info following Mike M’s next comment.

          • Thomas Day

            I’m sure it won’t be long. He’s already overdue.

          • The Constitutionalist

            I can’t wait to find out!

          • Why do you bother?

            Please hold your breath.

          • The Constitutionalist

            I did. It was a new record for me at just over a minute.

  • meh

    From the cradle to the grave, life ain’t ever been easy living in Shadowood.

    Nothing like some diversity. I’m sure these boys were just confused and this altercation was a giant misunderstanding. Clearly on their way to bible study no doubt.

  • Guest

    Clearly, those involved do not take their responsibilities as gun owners seriously. Perhaps they should enroll in an NRA-sanctioned class for safe firearms handling, or at least be better shots, god willing they will shoot one another and we will be rid of them all.

    It warms my heart to know that people are out exercising their Second Amendmemt rights.

    • Mike M

      Psst! The Second Amendment does not protect the right to pepper a public place because of an argument with your associates. I am sorry if our public schools have devolved to a place where that is what they taught you.

      • Why do you bother?

        Who are you and what have you done with Mike????

      • Chuck Morningwood

        I see that SARCASM doesn’t convey nicely on the internet.

    $50 says they were all “non caucasion”
