  1. What in the world is going on over there in Philly. People are just shooting people without and thought about their repercussion . It actually seems like the Wild West but in the city. Why isn’t that people don’t think about their actions before they do something stupid. I mean shooting someone over a parking spot is uncalled for and any other crazy shooting that goes on in that city and other cities . They need to start loving each other instead of killing each other. There needs to be a stop to this madness.

  2. That is so an individual to end someone life over a parking space they not only do it in the neighbor where they reside there’s also situations at the shopping Malls too.
