  • Very sad. I often wonder what circumstances lead to these sad outcomes. And how it could have been avoided 😢

  • Black Flash Mob 30 Blacks with phones out having fun while Stop Sign is missing after car wreck at NW 18th Avenue and NW 2nd Street (near the football stadium), GPD does not care, says we don’t have cams, says red piece of car and missing stop sign are not relevant.-
    FDLE won’t answer phone on Sunday. How Bizarre. If black flash mob kills me, maybe Fake Elections wanted it to be Kim Barton Equity.
