What’s the big deal? He only shot 3 people & they’re all gonna live right? If they DO arrest him I’ll bet Sarah let’s him off w/no bail. When reached for comment his mother said “He’s a good bit, a VERY good boy!” Thank goodness for gun waiting periods, background checks, and all the gun laws! I’m sure ALL the proper paperwork was done & forms filled out truthfully to the best of his knowledge for ATF compliance & FBI records checks. And if not, would’t he be charged Federally? Good thing our Legislature will override the Guv’s veto for LONGER waiting periods on gun purchases! It will surely affect crime & criminals right here in Vermont!
Oh–A “driver” w/a criminally suspended license STILL driving AND shushes into a cruiser? Good thing our DMV cross checks suspensions & registration to make sure folks aren’t still driving..ir do they? Could the DMV actually show up and REMOVE the plates from that car? Or should they be allowed to keep on driving until they kill some unsuspecting folks on the roads? “Criminal suspension” means nothing..
A shooting in Burlington? Burlington? Where? Downtown? The middle of Burlington? Call Max Tracy! Call Ali Dieng! They know just what to do!
Something weird about all the recent Burlington shooters, but I can’t quite say what it is.
I dont know about “weird” but there is certainly a high statistical consistency about the demographics concerning age, gender and ethnic origin in the recent history of (alleged) violent crimes in Burlington. We are way past the point of “equity” in crime statistics. There, I said it…
That picture of a dark-skinned male shooting suspect must have been photoshopped as the percentage of dark-skinned male shooting suspects has met its quota for the year… 😉
WE NEED PROSECUTORS THAT PROSECUTE, COURTS THAT FIND CRIMINALS GUILTY AND JUDGES WHO WILL KEEP THESE THUGS AND MURDERERS OFF OUR STREETS !!
ARMED DRUG CRIMINALS, OF MANY COLORS, FROM WAY TOO MANY OTHER STATES,
“OWN” WAY TOO MANY STREETS IN BURLINGTON
