Echo Park man shot by police gets a show of support*

The Los Angeles Police Department has remained quiet about last Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting in Echo Park that left one man injured until an investigation is completed. While police have declined to provide details about the incident, the friends of the family of the injured man have set up a large “Get Well Dizzy” card made from cardboard and placed it near the shooting scene at corner of Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.  The man, whose first name is David, often hung out nearby on Echo Park Avenue wearing a Dodger hat.

Police have declined to say if David remains at L.A. County-USC Medical Center, where he underwent surgery following the shooting. He was reported in serious but stable condition earlier this week.

Some persons in the comments section of The Eastsider have disputed some news accounts that said police opened fire on David after he pointed a gun and shot at them. Police have so far not said if any charges have or will be filed against him.

  1. Hey David, don’t worry about those medical doctors who have decades of education, training and experience tell you. “Bernise” says you are going to get better!

    • Everybody that doesn’t know dizzy does not need to speak. He would never be in echo park on no dumb shit! All he does is hang out drink beers and live his perfectly legal life! The man did not deserve what happend to him. He is over 40 yrs old. The pigs are just trigger happy cowards! There were no shots fired by him! The media and the police are lieing! It’s fucced up that police feel like they can do what they want, when they want! The sooner that every one realizes that and bands together against these devils the better. I never have sympathy for pigs when they die or get wounded. Most of them are lazy fuccs that aren’t worth the puny little paycheck they get. Fucc the corrupt pigs, and fucc everybody that is hating on dizzy! GET WELL BIG HOMIE! YOUR STLL HERE, NO MATTER HOW HARD THOSE PIGS TRIED TO KILL U! -respect-

  2. Qvole Dizzy David,

    This is Great to read you’re still with us David (Thank Jesus), you know what needs to be done now – sue that corrupted Police Station! (They are so corrupted) We need to find help, you know what I’m thinking? Ask Fr. Boyle if he knows who you can turn to too sue that department. That was not legal, too shoot you to Kill! (They could of shot you in another area, rather than the head) That was S187!

    • You should know that if the cops fire a gun, they do not shoot to wound. The gun is lethal force. If they are using it, they have already decided there are no non-lethal options. Needless to say, you don’t want things to ever get to the gun stage with a cop.

      Not making a comment on this case, of course. Just something to keep in mind in dealing with the cops, and thinking about what they do.

  3. haha BEANTEAM, why so cynical?

    • My cynicism knows no bounds when it comes to situations like this.

      The police did their jobs here. This dude had a history with the police creating disruption. The police knew who he was when he took off running and would not have shot at him without cause. he obviously did something to invite enough suspicion.
      The opportunist (like Bachelor Matt) see this as a perfect opportunity to sue and “punish” the taxpayers, that’s right, a law suit doesn’t punish the police it punishes the taxpayer! Look at the ignorance in bachelor matt’s comment “that was not legal, too shoot to KILL”! Uhm bachelor matt, ANYTIME the police are shooting at you, they are shooting to kill! You would benefit greatly by getting some reference outside a movie theater sweety. Shooting at a moving target from a distance greater than 25 feet with a pistol isn’t easy to hit much less choose where you want to hit it.

      My cynical comment was an attempt to point out the complete ignorance and bandwagon mentality of these opportunist.

      • Equally annoying are my fellow taxpayers whose defense of law enforcement officials seems to always err on the side irrational support.

        Perhaps, Beanteam has access to information that we don’t? Is it too difficult to concede that LAPD may have overreacted? (gasp) God knows this never happens, right?

        I’m not into blindly villainizing cops either, but if they unduly put a cap in Dizzy then he should totally obtain taxpayer recompense.

      • The officers are not judge, jury, and executioner. Unless they’re able to provide evidence that it was a life or death situation, this is an unacceptable display of violence from those put in place to protect us. It is their burden to prove this – not the man sitting in the hospital with a hole in his head.

  4. I guess Echo Park really hasn’t changed much.

  5. I’ve met David and said hi to him a few times. He was friendly, and he’s a fellow human being. I hope he makes a full recovery.

  6. Sue the cops? This guy created his own situation. First, he ran. Second, after he rounded the corner, he turned around with his hands around chest level ( not high in the air like when surrendering ) and RAN TOWARDS the cops as they came around the corner. These are not movements of surrender. He deserved what he got. That’s my opinion.
    Some of the get well “tags” look gang related. Bangers are lame and weak.

    • He deserved what he got???? Can you explain that in a logical way?? … Or maybe not because you re a Tea Party dude or one of those fascists who shoots first and ask later.

      • Yo Rob, I’ve already explained in a logical way why I think the dude bears responsibility for his own demise. Re-read my post and watch the video of the shooting. His movements, his actions, his choices are why he was shot.

    • First off IF U WATCH THE VIDEO RIGHT ! You’ll see him surrender and his hands didn’t make it all the way up because the cops RAMPARTS DUMBASSES SHOT RIGHT AWAY !!!! and u act like you know everything over a vedio. For reals ? it don’t matter what the situation is LAPD DON’T GIVE A SHIT ESPECIALLY IF YOUR A GANGSTER!!! And the VIDEO SHOWS WHERE THE COPS HAD A CHANCE TO TAZE HIM BUT NO THEY WANTED TO KILL HIM FOR JUST GETTING A DAMN BURRITO AND MESS WITH HIM JUST CUZ THEY JUST DON’T LIKE HIM! Dont try and act like you know WHATS SUP! David dizzy is a cool person and does no harm and helps others the best way he can.

  7. The police force should be enforcing peace, and to accomplish peace the police force would accept patrolling without fire arms loaded with lethal projectiles. Leading by example appears to be difficult. The tax payers who favor police with lethal projectiles could be the reason why gangs make decisions to kill.

    • Please tell me what you are smoking. I’d love to be as checked out from reality as you! Perhaps if I loose all sense of logic and rational, I wouldn’t suffer fools.

    • I always wondered why gang-bangers shot each other extensively. Now I know that it’s because of taxpayers who think cops should be armed. Yes, it makes perfects sense why gang bangers shoot other gang bangers. Thanks. You’re a genius.

  8. LAPD,

    Was he armed or not? Your silence leads me to believe he was not.

    • I don’t think LAPD is reading your posts, so you can pretty much ask them anything you want on here and you’ll get the same answer: silence.

      Anyway, I read news reports stating that he was not armed. Watch the video of his shooting, and you’ll see why it doesn’t matter if he really had a gun or not.

      • On the contrary. LAPD reads ALL posts here — and takes notes and will even keep track of who says what. A sworn officer is literally paid to do so. They monitor very closely. If they are silent, it is by choice, not because they didn’t see it.

        That silence on this issue, whether here in this forum or a press release on this shooting, hits me as very suspicious about this shooting. LAPD is NOT normally silent about an officer involved shooting.

  9. There is no way this guy was armed. Drunk, yes. Armed? No way. I see Dizzy every day and he was no threat to these streets.
    This is awful and the LAPD should be ashamed of themselves.
    I heard those gun shots and knowing that I heard this man get gunned down makes me sick!

  10. 2013. six california police officers killed by gunfire in the line of duty. need one say more.

  11. I sued LAPD AN I WON! YEAH BUDDY I GOT PAID. AN SO WILL DAVID. GANGS WITH BADGES. IM NO BANGER IM A RETIRED POLICE DISPATCHER. LAPD DID ME WRONG AN YEAH BUDDY THEY PAID. I HAD NO JUSTICE. UNTIL I CASHED THAT CHECK…
    The Locals in Echo Park stand with David . Everyone else you dont know of what you speak. So full of hate. I still sorry for you. There WAS NO GUN.

    • Im a Local , and dont stand up to any violence from either side.
      Dont speak for me , i dont stand by something or someone i know anything about .
      Your opinion is your own , and not every “local’ stands by it !
      Echo Park since 1967 .

    • you should change your handle to ‘echoparkfool’. I think the working part of your brain fell out of your neck and hit the caps lock, why else would you be so happy about winning the ghetto lottery? You are so proud of your misfortune it makes me sad.

      If a person gets scared they jump, they don’t wait to see if the thing they are scared by is really scary and then decide weather or not to jump. Weather that tore up old fool had a gun or not is not the issue. His own decisions led him to that spot. He is responsible for resisting arrest, raising his arms and coming at the cops. Lord knows what was in that idiots head. If he didn’t have a gun he’s an even bigger ass than he seems. My ass gets called by the cops and I’m going to stand still – end of story. If you think you’re more powerful than the cops (or should be) then have at it.

      • We don’t even know the story yet, even the cops won’t say. Yet, you already have a definitive and absolutely final determination of “fact” that you even assert is “end of story.” No qualification, no ifs, no room for anything to the contrary. Sounds just a wee but closed minded and prejudiced to me.

      • mind if I plagiarize the “I think the working part of your brain fell out of your neck and hit the caps lock,” sometime?
        That is hilarious!

  12. *dont* know anything about…..

  13. *dont* know anything about…..

  14. David aka Dizzy once threatened me while I sat and ate dinner at Redhill’s outdoor patio on Echo Park Ave. I was on a date when he came up and start spitting out rude and obscene things to myself and my date. We looked at each other and ignored him, while he said things like “I’m going to f-ing kill you” “You don’t belong on my street” etc. I made eye contact with him and he said “You don’t f-ing deserve to look at me”. He then left and ran across the street and started something with another person before moving on. I was shocked to then see his face on the Eastsider after seeing the reports before of the actions taken by lapd last week.

    • I have been hassled by types like him at Burrito King and near the Echo. I don’t think trying to kill him was the right choice, it just seems like if they spent time in the neighborhood they would know who is and isn’t a true threat. This should have been an arrest for disorderly conduct, not a shooting. I understand the fear of the unknown, but assuming every erratic drunk person has a gun is a really dangerous and terrible position to take.

    • Same here. He and his exp boys tried to start a fight with my group of friends once in the MIDDLE OF THE DAY, and it was all bc we’re (semi) white and not brown enough for their street…would have been a hate crime fyi. Anyone who says this guy wasn’t a gang affiliate is dead wrong. Sorry if EXP has some non-murderous dudes in their gang but as a whole they shoot/get shot at and tag up the neighborhood. If you don’t want to be called a fratboy, don’t join a frat. Same goes for gangs.

      • So what are you saying, that we (the police) should go out and just flat out shoot and kill everyone who does or ever has had any affiliations with the street gang in their neighborhood, even if simply because they have to have the affiliations as the only way they can be there without constantly being beaten up? No trials any more, no charges even filed, no need even for an offence, just shoot and kill them because they are gang affiliates?

        I believe in our constitution, and that is that police simply stop and detain and protect, and prosecutors will decide if someone should be accused, and judges and juries will hear all the facts and decide guilt. But you just cast all consideration and fairness out the window in favor of the hang-em-high vigilante approach.

        You see, this isn’t about whether the police should have shot and killed him simply because he was known to have associated with some bad people, even if that’s so — hey, Frank Sinatra was famous for associating with bad Mafiosi. This is about whether the shooting was decidedly in policy, meaning police were really in imminent fear of being injured and needed the extreme level of defense of shooting and killing him in order to stop that.

        Yet, what I have read is that this guy had his arms up to his shoulders, which sounds to me like he had his hands raised and was surrendering. Just because he didn’t stretch his arms all the way to the clouds doesn’t mean he wasn’t surrendering. Yet, unlike you, I remain open to hear the facts, and that description of his arms might actually have been something else, but the police have not said.

        • if thats who you consider a friend, you need to make better friends.

        • Nic: the video of the shooting is on-line. You can watch it for yourself and see if you think he moved like he was surrendering.

          In my opinion of watching the video, which is really quite clear… he ran around a corner. Before the cop rounded the corner, Dizzy turned around and began running towards the cops with his arms out front.. as if he were holding and pointing a gun. When the cop rounds the corner, this is what he sees and starts blasting. I would have done the same without question.

        • I guess your opinion is fair based on my tone. I really do support individual freedoms over anything else so I’m sorry if I came off vigilantesque… I’m just sick of how pathetic the LAPD is at cleaning up this neighborhood. These guys commit felonies every single night in what is now a 500k+ home neighborhood.

          The LAPD does NOTHING to get rid of these idiots. Last time that guy got beat up on Fargo street, there were cops for about a week, then they disappeared again. These dudes know when to lay low and then they go right back to making trouble for the law abiding residents. I’m at the point where I just want them gone, I don’t really care how. It’s the ONLY reason I now support the blackbird development. More yuppies to call and complain to the LAPD about the idiots tagging their “modern farmhouse bungalows”

          Squeaky wheel gets the grease.

  16. One less scumbag on the streets.

    • I don’t think I would mind is someone gave you a visit tonight, so that we could have year another scumbag off the streets. Now, that would be real justice — I sure would not want you to have a trial.

      • I don’t think any of us attempting to read your garbled posting would mind if some sort of vengeful grammar vigilante visited you tonight. You know… so that we could have another illiterate off the streets.

        You certainly won’t need a trial. You’ve already convicted yourself.

        Jeez.

          “Jeez” is not a word, it is short for Jesus.
          Therefore, the correct grammatical term would be “Jesus”.

          • Dear Grammar Vigilante: I’m sorry, but you shouldn’t critique others’ grammar until you learn to compose a flawless, error-free post. To wit, you have committed two egregious errors in your own missive:

            1. Your first sentence is technically a run-on sentence, and instead of using a comma to separate the two independent clauses, you should have used a semicolon.
            2. The second line of your text contains a period outside of the quotes; the punctuation should be within the quotation marks.
            Your newly-revised sentence should read:

            “Jeez” is not a word; it is short for Jesus. Therefore, the correct grammatical term would be “Jesus.”

  17. Not Another Neighbor

    According to the bouncer on shift at the Goldroom that night he didn’t shoot or have a gun. Allegedly he had an old black cell phone in his hand when he rounded on the cops which, on a scale of one to ten, is absolutely stupid. Also… if you run from the police you shouldn’t expect an easy ride (im not saying you deserve to have 14 shots fired at you either). According to other locals I have spoken to he had got out of jail two days previously.

    I’ve met David a bunch of times and whilst he’s obviously smacked or cracked out he’s less scary than his girlfriend who’s name he has tattooed on his face. His nickname ‘Dizzy’ is because he gets wasted and falls over a lot. Genius.

    Im not really making any comment on the issue just providing some local background.

  18. My prayers go out ti dizzy… He didnt deserve any of this! He is my homegirls man & a good guy so to all of you saying he deserved this yall dont know s@#%

    • Umm…. sure we do. The people that have had encounters with him feel he’s a dangerous scumbag who got what he deserved. The people who knew him tend to be much more forgiving and are willing to put blinders on to the behavior and shenanigans of someone they care for but got him in the position he’s in now. Anyone who knows anything about growing up in the ‘hood knows someone like this guy. Including me.

      Let’s see….

      Does he go out and menace and threaten people who have no obvious gang affiliation and are just “civilians” like a banger would? Well sure, but he probably had too much to drink that night. Or no, it wasn’t him, it was the guys he was with. He wasn’t involved. Or no, that’s not my son. He wouldn’t do something like that. You’ve got the wrong guy.

      Is he a constant mark for police because of his behavior, his actions and the people he associates with? Well sure, but the police are always harrassing the little man. Or they’re racist. Why are they hassling my boy when they should be out looking for the REAL criminals?

      I could go on and on. But really, you should take the blinders off and realize what kind of a person this guy really was, what things he was out doing in the streets and what ultimately landed him in the position he’s in now.

  19. To not another neighbor…. U have some nerve… U just a scary larry ….keep ur trap shut dummy his lady will bomb on ur scary ass

    • So this guy didn’t deserve anything that happened to him because he’s an innocent and yet you’re threatening violence on someone who makes a comment on a blog post?

      Don’t you see the irony in…….

      Nevermind.

    • Not Another Neighbor

      Is that English?

  20. Is he the guy with EXP Tatted on his stomach and Echo Park on his chin?

  21. well, now we know that it is true. we are endangered species…although they try to permanently remove us they just can’t…anyone that know David, knows he don’t even carry a knife, yet alone a gun…why shoot at an unarmed man? some other officers should have been like, stand down its dizzy dave, i am sure one them knew who he was that work the streets of echo park, as much as they harass him. Not even all the enemies we have in echo park ever took a crack at him…(This is an act of some cowardly, police tatics…Now they want more training, and more tax payer dollars, if you ask me they are overtrained and should take something off of it!

  22. One more comment:

    If we had better gun control laws, cops wouldn’t have to assume that every asshat acting erratically might be armed, and could just tackle and arrest people for disorderly conduct or misdemeanor assault, which is should have happened here – instead of taking things to another level of violence and having taxpayers foot a giant hospital bill and a guy who wasn’t armed is now hurt.

    Maybe he’s not a good dude overall, but unarmed people should not be shot by cops.

    • So, you think with better gun control laws… bad guys, who don’t follow laws by definition, will not have guns… and cops will assume that bad guys who DON’T follow laws WILL follow gun control laws… and not have a gun; therefore it would be safe to tackle the bad guy?

      Great thinking.

    • Way to oversimplify it.

      Let’s look at the facts. A man with known violent gang affiliations is running away from the police. They chase him (after responding in the first place to reports of gunfire, which I personally heard that night prior to the police shooting). He stops his retreat and turns towards the police with his hands up and something in one of his hands. You want them to stop and wait to see if they get shot before taking him down? Idiotic.

      As for your gun control argument… shortsighted as well. Don’t get me wrong. NO ONE wants gun crimes, but when you’re talking about hispanic gangs, do you think they buy their guns from the gun shop with a background check? Comon…

      I’d really like to live in your idealistic world where logic isn’t necessary to solve problems. Really. It sounds nice.

  23. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE

    I have known David for over 18 years and know for a fact he wouldn’t hurt a fly. Don’t let his looks fool you. He is an Innocent man! He did NOT have any weapons i know this for a fact because when it happened i was with him and had walked away to buy some tacos by Walgreens not to far from where this happen. I am one of the witnesses who saw it all. If anyone knows the truth I’m one of them. Rampart police dept. is so corrupted and full of hate. and they will pay. And for the ones that put the bullets in Dizzy you know you are wrong he is innocent. And it will be proven.

    AND ITS FUNNY HOW AT THE TIME OF THE INVESTIGATIONS THEY REFUSE TO TAKE OUR STATEMENTS WHEN HE SAW EVERYTHING AND WERE THE CLOSET TO THE SCENE. BUT THEY TOOK OTHER PEOPLE STATEMENTS WHO WERE FAR.
    BUT ITS ALL GOOD WE WILL GET OUR STORY ON.

    LESS THAN A WEEK BEFORE THIS THEY HARASSED MY BROTHER A BLOCK AWAY FROM WHERE THEY SHOT DIZZY. THEY ARE DIRTY AND WRONG. MY BROTHER DID NOTHING. THEY MESSED WITH HIM AND RELEASED HIM WITH NO CHARGES SAME WITH DIZZY THEY SHOT HIM AND NO CHARGES.

    THE LAPD MAKES ME FEAR FOR MY LIFE INSTEAD OF FEELING SAFE

    TO ALL THE NON BELIEVERS- Dizzy is doing fine and continues to be stable.. only the strong survive and that he is..GOD IS GRACIOUS, GOD IS GOOD, DIZZY IS COMING BACK TO HIS HOOD!

  24. I been with Dizzy for 13 years and knowing him for 25. i have never known him to carry a weapon or harm anyone. all i have ever known him to do is pan handle for a beer.. in my opinion the LAPD did a very wrong thing. you can ask anyone who knew him well that he was a nice person and help you clean or do anything to earn himself a beer. i have been sitting by his bed side day and night having flash backs of what i saw and i would never wished this on anyone. If he was running and they had to shoot to detain him why was it a kill shot to the head .. why not taser or bean bag him?? and after he was down still hand cuffed him.. they shot him like they were hunting for a deer. These cops know him and harassed him so they knew exactly who they were dealing with and not once has he ever been violent with them so they had no reason to feel threatened they knew he has a series of mental issues.

    I LOVE YOU BABE I HOPE YOU GET WELL AND IM WAITING FOR YOU TO GET HOME!! YOU NEED TO COME THRU THE COPS CANT GET THIS WIN!! WE STILL HAVE A FULL LIFE AHEAD OF US!!

  25. Dizzys Going To Make It !! He Got 9 Lives !! He Can Survive Anything :) GET WELL SOON MY BOY

  26. Im anything but pro LAPD but cmon people you can’t wheel around on the LAPD when they are chasing you and make that kind of gesture. Whether or not he was armed is irrelevant in that situation. Lets say the cops waited a second or two more and it turned out he was armed and a stray bullet killed a bystander.

    Of course there may be more to the story before the video that mitigates what came after but just based on the video this is a justified shooting if there ever was one.

  27. I believe that the police were out to kill and knew first hand on who they were shooting at. I have known David for 13 years and have always thought of him as a very kind and loving guy with a big heart. Heck what people in the community have to say negatively about David. I pray that he gets better so that he can seek justic and file a claim against the LAPD police deportment. GOD BLESS YOU DAVID!!!!

  28. My uncle David is not a bad man. I am so hurt about hearing what the LAPD has done and no one should ever be able to get away with such a crime just because they wear uniforms with badges claiming to uphold the law to sever and protect because clearly after seeing my poor uncle get shot down on the news was so,so awful and my heart goes out to my aunt n cousin. I love you uncle David and Pray that you get better soon.

  29. Siriouly come on…why are there so many negative comments about David n what has he ever done so bad to anyone to of have deserved getting shot 9 times??? I bet if any of the people who have been making harsh stated comments had gone though having someone they love be shot or killed they would not like it. People please have some respect and stop posting such negative comments about David and more then anything get the real facts straight! May God be with David and may he comfort those whom he loves!!!!

  30. So quick with a stoke, but yet so slow to think. The ignorance is in the writing and some folks have issues. This is a lesson to be learned and some how the story got lost. Get well Homie

    • So poetic! All this time I thought gang members were a bunch of idiots with their spray paint reminding me every two steps that this is their ‘hood’ when ironically they don’t ‘own’ anything… hmm now I’m confused!

  31. Good job david your still alive now u can keep being a bumb in mecho park

  33. OPINIONATED OLD LADY

    Wasn’t there so can’t say for sure; however, neighbor just above Sunset called early a.m. to tell me about having heard four or five rapid fire shots (sounded like a handgun) then several rapid fire louder shots (automatic weapon?).

    So . . . it sounds like originally there was SOMEONE with a gun and perhaps the cops weren’t just out to shoot an innocent bystander (as some of your readers seem to be saying).

  34. mission impossible

    To fauxican i see your backing up lapd I WONDER WHY

  35. MY MAN IS GETTING BETTER I THANK GOD BECUZ GOD IS GOOD THE PEEPS OUT THERE NEED TO GREW UP AND GET A LIFE OK LEAVE US A LONE AND SO WHAT HE DRANK WHO DOESNT AND HED NO BUM I LIVE HIM AND THATS ALL THAT MATTER SO YOU LITTLE KIDS GET A LIFE AND JUST PRAY TO GOD UR ASSES DON’T GET SHOT BY THE COPS LIKE THAT

    • I love the “David is a good person” rap. From all accounts AT BEST he was a DRUNK that randomly harassed people that didn’t look like him (aka white people). Save the rap, at least call a spade a spade.

  37. David is a good person the cops were wrong they shot a inocent man dirty ass

        • We would fight it out if we would find them n yea i am cys and all i gotta say is f*** dizzy and all hes mecho self sopporters

          • Yes Mayberry. You would “fight it out”. And then what? Go get ice cream, holding hands? Or would you fight to the death like gladiators!?

            For a weto like me, I’m trying to understand what you get out of the fighting over turf that isn’t yours and “ganging up” with someone who lives on your block and opposing a (likely) distant cousin of yours because he lives on a different block. What is the end game? What does it all accomplish? And most importantly, are you done yet?

  40. mission impossible

    Like I said, to all non believers out there- “DAVID IS INNOCENT!!!!!!!” I was there!!!! You will all see in time. The truth will be known. Then all you non believing imature critisizers will look stupid, all believers on Davids behalf will have the last laugh. Thats how sure I am. God Bless You “Dizzy” your coming home to the place were you belong………

  41. Ive been knowing david for 13yrs. hes like a step dad to me . I know that he wasnt armed he would never hurt anyone in this world. People who are commenting bad stuff about him it isnt true your trying to make look like a bad guy he isnt. in my eyes he is a good loving man. i hope you would come back where you belong…..

  46. Im a Local , and dont stand up to any violence from either side.
    Dont speak for me , i dont stand by something or someone i know anything about .
    Your opinion is your own , and not every “local’ stands by it !
    Echo Park since 1967 .

  47. I don’t think LAPD is reading your posts, so you can pretty much ask them anything you want on here and you’ll get the same answer: silence.

    Anyway, I read news reports stating that he was not armed. Watch the video of his shooting, and you’ll see why it doesn’t matter if he really had a gun or not.

  48. Good Christ, sir. Don’t you realize how stupid you look spouting that gibberish?

  49. Reply intended for “Mayberry Loco.”

  50. Which side is the “opposite” side? East or west? And opposite of what?
    Thanks.

  51. Because I hate gangbangers? must be a cop. I want to live in your world.

    Really ? This is all just satirical bullshit . Do you really think my comment was serious ? Buy yourself a sense of humor ! What a dork !

  53. Grammar Vigilante, let’s go to the store together. I’ll buy a sense of humor and you can buy a good book on grammar and punctuation. (Since you’re a self-proclaimed “grammar vigilante,” your purchase may be tax-deductible, but then again, I doubt you need to itemize your deductions.)
