Sad. Very sad. Is this report a prophesy? Did the shooting actually happen on August 28? Or will it occur on September 28?

Don't worry Liz the ghetto mantra is SNTICHES GET STICHES ! when you want to know what happened DON'T ASK DON'T TELL! and then complain how the police are nothing more than an occuping force in the so called inner city neighborhoods even though i'd like to know where are the inner city neighborhoods in the five boroughs of NYC
