Within minutes,  a 21 year old male pulled a pistol and fired several rounds, striking one boy, aged 16 in his head as he was running away. It is not know if he was involved in the initial altercation.

    When actions have no consequences lawlessness prevails. With Krasner in office, my bet is the shooter will be out in time for Thanksgiving, while the victim’s family will continue crying at the empty seat at the table.

    Anyone know the DA count of illegal gun procession arrests that have been tried and convicted, over the past 5 years?
