  • Another weekend.

    Another shooting.

    Again in an impoverished neighborhood.

    Can we go 4 for 4? Another black on black shooting?

    City leadership continue to tell lies to keep their oppression over minority neighborhoods. They enslave the entire city to their GRU rates and high taxes.

    All you liberals…keep on believing.

    • Blame the liberals…lol, this is an issue everywhere in the country dumbass

      • Primarily in liberal run communities since you obviously are full of political BS…and bias. Maybe it’s beyond your reading level? With any luck, with the equity being pushed, you’ll be able to comprehend it one day.

        Nice to see you still line up at the trough.

  • Meanwhile a deputy who worked at the Alachua County jail just got busted by the feds for selling guns to gang bangers. Who did the background check on him? Did the ASO HR person get promoted in the recent ASO reorganization? How can ASO stop the gang shootings when one of their own is supplying the guns?

    • The black community has some tough choices here
      In GNV…gun shots or Covid “clot shot”? Where’s BLM?
      They will be wearing the mask, but not taking the Vax. BLM needs to show up at the GRU peaceful protest at
      City hall…Bielarski is right on this one!
