  1. This is horrible! There are families there with children! What moron would shoot into a building with children in it? If you have a beef with someone, take it somewhere else!

  2. The US ATTORNEY General said the majority of shootings and murders are caused by gang members. Minnesota Governor, Attorney General and Mayor's refuse to openly talk about gangs controlling the metro area. They refuse to openly talk about the NO-SNITCH CODE IN THE COMMUNITIES.
